    Hi Guys ,

    Ian,

    Thanks for comment as always ...now fully base coated with eyes ...steely blue!

    Paul ,

    Glad you like it looks a bit lost just base coated but all the details are still there!


    Taff ,

    Thanks for your comment glad you like the details ....your father really deserved his legion , Dupin was just provably in the right place at the right time and got away with living ....bit of a rogue ..despite the medals !


    Enjoying this even more now paints on him , going to probably add a bi more decoration under the sombrero and maybe the.rim ..but by painting effects .

    Will post pic soon

    That's what we are all liking Kev, the details in the devil.

    I hope you can now enjoy the daubing of the tinctures various.

    That sombrero should be great.
