    Hi All!

    :)

    This is my next Box-art for Stu, for his Black-sheep range :) and I'm going to try and have it done for Euro &:)

    It's kit number BS120/01 and is available from here

    This kit has a relatively high parts count and so required a bit of time for the clean-up.

    The fit is excellent and after removing the casting blocks, cleaning a few seams, washing and undercoating I got on with the skin parts.

    A bit of work still to do refining the finish but essentially done

    :)

    Please feel free to do any of the C's or not :)


    Parts out of the box...

    Hi Marc,
    Excellent preparation for painting the figure, but face is pretty well painted, giving the impression, the agony of the battle.
    Excellent so far, expect the remaining part to be painted.

    Carl ... yeah loads ;) and cheers! :)

    Stu ... Thanks and hope you enjoy the finish :)

    Steve ... Many thanks :)



    Face is almost there, extreme enlargement always shows the tiniest flaws and really helps in getting a nice finish. Notice the eye on the right hand side face? there is a flash of white from under the top lid ... !? I will sort it out at the start of the next painting session :)

    Thank you digital photography!!

    Very nice work mark!!!

    You can try to darkened field grey by using red black or purple red dark this most rich like color in finish.

    Philippe .... Thank you! Yes other colours can be used :) Prefer to flatten the colour for this kind of uniform :)

    Working on the leather ... Usual mix of colours for this, AV Black base and then lined and blocked with GW Blazing Orange, Snakebite Leather and Scorched Brown... Added a touch of AV Light Flesh to the Snakebite for final picking out, Blocked back in with GW Chaos Black

    Tony ... Thanks :) time consuming :(

    Mitsutaka ... Many thanks :)


    Working on the equipment .....

    One of my favourite parts of doing this kind of figure is the various bits and bobs hanging from belts and webbing, as it allows me to fiddle about with details, lots of little details that hopefully add to the visual interest of the piece without distracting from the face ... Kindathing! fun anyway :)

    nothing is actually finished ;)

    Ken ...... many thanks :)

    László .... Thank you! :eek:


    Arms are now fixed in place, touched up bits and bobs and base coated the boots, most small details are now done and the equipment just needs some graphite on the metallic parts, used the Peddinghaus set EP 1447 for the stick grenades ( thanks again Carl! ) ....

    Note! I coated the grenade head with a couple of coats of Klear, after it had dried I placed the decals in a layer of Klear and again allowed to dry, then used a W&N Acrylic Matt Varnish to flatten it back down, some chips applied with dark green finished the painting :)
