That's a great figure Matt excellent work.
Superbly realistic painting of a fantastic sculpt.
That is one outstanding figure and wonderful weathering for the scene.
It is all resin. Lots of it
Thank you for the nice compliments.
Simply marvellous - it just looks s real-
Wow really great work.
Love these big beasts. 1/6th scale is my favourite. Superb painting. I think the eyes are outstanding.
Superb Matt! Looks like he was a lot of fun to paint.
Superb - sums up the atmosphere of the beaches on DDay
Superb work, I hope he makes it to cover the poor bugger.
11months ago I made my way down from the US cemetery to the waters edge and back at Omaha with some difficulty.
I had no-one shooting at me, and I only carried a camera and a bottle of water.
That was humbling.
Seeing this Superb piece I could hear the surf and smell the salt again.
This brings a lot of sights and memories of a rewarding visti back, it is exactly how I imagine the guys to come ashore
Thanks for making and sharing this with us.
Excellent work my friend! I feel this is one of your best to date. Everything about it is great, and a full figure to boot!
Talent has no scale and this figure proves it!
Excellent work Matt!
What can we say Matt, ya punched this one outta da park Bro, ya really did! A great inspiration for us Large Scale figure dogs. Love it!
I'm a little late chiming in on this lovely execution of a
John Rosengrant figure. Living here in the American Heartland
I've seen a number of castings from Rosengrant molds. And the
sculpting is outstanding. What really makes this work for me
is the way you have attached the figure to the base. It is thrusting
forward. And there is an atmosphere of foreboding all over the place.
Of course, Omaha Beach was a horrific nightmare. The first
wave of American infantry had 96 percent casualties, according to
Rick Atkinson in his Liberation triology; which I would highly recommend
. The look on the face and the skillful way that you have painted the eyes,
especially the eyes, just fill this presentation with dramatic tension, and a sense
of "death in a second" in just a few more running steps forward toward the beach.
Congratulations, Matt. We all know that since these kind of figures
are larger scale, the painting has to be that much better. And you
have achieved that, in spades. Kind regards, Miami Jayhawk
