    Every time I do a large figure ( Lakota Sioux ) I usually have another figure on the side that I ake a few minutes with to get a break from the larger project. A few minutes here and there will eventually bring a figure towards completion. I started this figure back in October and basically put it aside after thanks giving to do the 120mm Lakota mounted figure for TLB.

    I took a break today and snapped a couple of photos to show you where the "side figure" is at now.

    Hopefully the Celtic Standard Bearer will be finished right after the Lakota and I will post the finished pics.

    Thanks for the feedback Marc & Ernest.

    Ernest~ I use bottled enamels by Floquil. The base coat is Gun Metal followed with a black wash. After drying I dry-brush the metal with Old Silver lightly.

    Guy...... Guy....... Guy......
    Picture a man looking like Wile E. Coyote after he's just been owned by the Road Runner.....

    I think this is one of the best Celtic personae figures I have ever seen. I am very interested in learning how you did the fleece cloak. Will there be a SBS for this figure?

    regards,

    Thanks for the feedback Peter and Dick. I appreciate the comments.

    Mike~ The fleese was the easiest part with the hair detail already csulpted into the cloak. I base coated the fur with a medium gray acrylic then mixed a 4 to 1 wash and covered the fur. After drying I used a Meduium gray floquil enamel for the first all-over dry brushing followed after drying with a light gray to the upper folds with a final dry-brushing of floquil white to the very tops of the folds.

    Hope this helps.

    While on a 10 day vacation I was able to finish a 90mm Celtic Standard Bearer I had started many many months ago.

    Really nice Celtic Guy,

    Your base is spot on, and give's that figure just something more.
    But i think (my neatpicking) that you must redo the eyes. I find them not so good as you ususal do. They seems popped up for me.
    And if i.m wrong please correct me.
