    Ok guys, this is what I'm working on before I get to Euro. After the Templar the sizi difference was drastic to say the least. This is figure is small, smaller than the standard 54mm but painting it is really a joy. Will show you more when it's finished.

    Stephen,
    great start. The fleshtones are great! Is it just me, or do most of the Latorre 54mm sculpts tend to be more like 1/35 scale. I have the Elite Captain Souter at Gandamak kit and it is small! Don't get me wrong, they are perfectly sculpted, just tend toward the smaller side it seems. Keep us posted!

    No Jay it's not you but most of Latorres figures ( especially the earlier ones ) are more 1/35the than actual 54mm. As you say they are great sculpts and whilst some had some anatomical questions about them, I still think that when it comes to folds and drapery Latorre is still the best.

    I envy this matt results obtained by acrylics!But when i tried them for a change i found out that Andrea sometimes tend to get a white line cause of the choke (or whatever they have in) and that Vallejo tend to glaze a bit.Is this how they r suppose to be or did i do something wrong?Can they be mixed?

    Yes Dimitrios, sometimes it does happen. It depends from particular colours. Good dilution rates help alot in this.

    My friend hi . Your fleshtones look very good and its not that easy to paint so much of flesh !

    Your groundwork also looks good ,but i have some thoughts on the taller piece of wood that stands behind the Celt.

    Considering that the main theme is always the figure, in this case you have a particular pose with a totally raised hand , and the tree stump stands as tall and raised as the hand, beeing a bit competitive to his pose.

    I think that a lower stumps complex (without the taller part) would work more in benefit of the dynamis of the figure .

    But thats only my way of thinking . Waiting to see it completed, and ohh how much i wish i could be in Euro ... how much ....but ... :( :( :(

    Thanks guys for your feedback.

    Ok Kostas here's the story about the tree . Since I wanted to finish this for Euro I was a little unprepared with regards to what base I would use. Having run out of bases I had to turn to my friends at the club. The only base that nearly fitted the subject was slightly larger than I wished but I had no choice. So I included the tree to fill in some space. I know the height is a little awkward but I was a little with my back against the wall :lol: . Maybe when I fix the blade the overall height of the figure with give a different impression. Hopefully :lol:
