    Hi all,

    This is my third figure and I am hoping to discover a little improvement with each one. This is a Model Cellar 120mm figure which has been built straight from the box. There was a misalignment with the rifle in the casting but after a bit of careful sanding and filling I was able to repair it to a presentable standard.

    Painted in Vallejo with oils used for the timberwork on the rifle. Highlights and depth provided by citadel washed and Tamiya powder. The base came with the figure and is also painted with Vallejo and drybrushed for depth.

    Again, all comments are welcome and thanks for looking

    Regards
    Greg(y)

    Lovely job Greg. Considering this is only your 3rd figure, I'd say you're definitely improving in leaps and bounds.

    Very nice work on a great subject.
    Maybe some more shading on the skintone will give him a less paler look.

    Looks great Greg.
    Is it oils your using?The uniform has a slight sheen to it.
    The face looks great but I agree with previous comments and just arken some areas to improve contrast. I would also perhaps painted the puttees a shade different as it looks like a continuation of the trousers.
    Apart from that and for a third figure It's extremely good.
    Thanks for showing,
    Gells.
