WIP Critique Brit red Devil Officer Arnhem

Discussion in 'vBench (Works in Progress)' started by Gellso, Apr 30, 2010.

    This is the Denison smock guy. He's been washed with a little Vallejo Chocolate brown to try and bring the smock tones together. the Beret looks red in the phots but it is genuinely maroon. Incidently the 'red Beret' was introduced in 1942, at the direction of General Frederick Browning, commander of the British 1st Airborne Division. The colour of the beret was reportedly chosen by his wife, the novelist Daphne du Maurier who wrote "The Birds". Thank god her favourite colour wasn't Pink!

    Great progress Grant!
    The camo pattern is wonderful.
    The fresh tone is also beautiful.
    I'm looking forward to completion.

    Nice work on the denison smock mate and the flesh looks great also. Yeh the beret does look too red in the pics but i will take your word for it that it is actually maroon :D.

    One thing about the figure that is a common mistake with sculpting paras of this period is the jump flap on the smock, it should hand down as there were no clips in place to have it folded up on the bottom of the smock at the back, troops either left it hanging or cut it off when deployed, not your fault though mate and just a point i noticed.
