    Hi

    This is the Jinkoo Bust I won in the FOTM last year, Gabor the owner of BigBear Miniatures very kindly sent it to me when Jinkoo failed to.

    Its a very nice bust to paint, great details and it’s a big piece for a 1/10. All in acrylics.

    Cheers

    Hi Neil

    That's a great piece to show and well painted

    I do like the weathering you've done both on the piece but also the shield ...noted the damage in particular

    The eyes are very well done ..something your good at he looks mean

    Wish my leatherwork looked like what you've done here

    Why not enter FOTM as well ...we are also running a Vignette & Diorama comp which you might be interested in ...great prizes on all

    Thanks for sharing

    Happy benchtime

    Neil - that is excellent. I echo Nap on the leatherwork and the shield. I also like the way you have dealt with the grain effect on the crossbow. And Warwick's "Ragged Staff" as a shield motif - nice touch! All in all a quality piece of work. Thanks for sharing it - stuff like this is what inspires me (y)

    Nice job that Neil. Very nice indeed. It's all excellent, but I'm going to single out the wood effect on the crossbow for a special mention.

    Thanks guys, it’s great to see the different elements of a figure which have the most impact on people, just shows how we all get attracted to different aspects in a figure.

    I love everything about the figure Neil! The leather, face and the shield are superb, but I would swear you replaced the crossbow stock with a piece of wood. AMAZING!

    Cheers,
