    75mm Valkyrie by Alexandros models. The sculpture is incredible and was so much fun to paint. The shield design is inspired by a painting I found online by an unknown (to me) artist.

    Very nice Mike. I like the sheer effect, how did you accomplish this? The shield and your freehand skills are very good. The blond hair looks to be well done.

    Great work Mike!
    The transparency of the dress in the area of the leg is stunning.

    This was the girl who married with Athila to revenge the dead of his brother´s isn´t she?

    Although the painting you are very impressive and I am glad to see such a job here in the forum in my opinion I think the shield should be how clean lines and contours to be seen what the job nice to see this moment!

    Hold on, I just caught something Mike. Sometimes I'm a bit slow. The shield scene represents Valkyrie conducting a slain hero to Valhalla. Awesome! A really clever and artistic way you tied things together on this one!

    Besides the shield and the sheer, the skin on this lady looks very "Teutonic". Sweet, Mikey.

    Thanks guys for taking a look at her. Joe; you are correct about the shield. Pedro; Brünnhilde has many variants to her story and I didn't read all of them so I can't answer your question. Thank you again for taking the time to comment on her.

    That is simply stunning. I also have this figure but I wasn't too happy with the face and hands, so she's been sitting at the back of a shelf for around 12 months now, but seeing this incredible example is inspiring me to have another try when I get back home in around 6 weeks time.
    Absolutely amazing piece of work.

    Thanks
