    Interesting that you started his face while the sculpt was still in progress. Thought I was the only one who did stuff like that. Great anatomy....you can sense the looming weight of the sword blow.

    I too like to paint the face early on, so I can see the figure I am creating. I love to build Historex figures, and I have really enjoyed keeping up with your SBS. Thanks for posting it. You did a super job on the eyes and the facial expression. With paint, you can really see how it turned out. I would love to see you do a detailed SBS on re-working the eyes.

    This is looking fantastic - very dynamic pose and the facial expression is excellent. The whole piece looks very solid - just how you imagine the "heavies" in action.
    Cheers
