    Hi Planeteers,

    Here are the final pics of my latest project, "Brothers In Arms" depicting a photograph of two US Army soldiers during the Korean War greiving over the loss of one of their comrades near Naktong on August 28, 1950.

    The kit is 1/9th scale and is called Compassion. It was sculpted by Mark Ricketts for Classicae. Thanks Mark for all your help and inspiration.:D

    The figures are painted in Vallejo acrylics and weathered using earth tone pastels.

    I hope you like it.

    Soldier's facial expression is very wonderful.

    Good to see Tony

    Impressive; yep. That's the word.

    This could have been easily done as a "nearly there" result, but you bought life to these figures.

    What about basing this piece? How are you doing that?

    (Slinks back to his wobbly work bench, with some figures so near completion...while the T.Dawe figure factory produces high volume high quality figures)

    cheers

    Thanks Jamie,

    I spent some time looking at myself in the mirror trying to mimic the facial expressions of these two figures, and trying to impart some emotion into the faces. The crying figure was particularly difficult to get right because half his face is obscured. I wanted the other figure to have a sort of blank, stoic, far-away look on his face as if he's deep in thought.

    The vignette comes with its own base, so I'll probably leave it as it is.
