    This is my latest commision piece that I just completed for a client. He is a World war I historical figure based on the Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria. He is a Ulrich Puchala release in 1/16th scale. Overall sculpt is good but the casting was not executed very well, very uneven almost clumpy in the areas of the face, headgear, hands and boots but with some work he turned out quite nice. He is painted in vallejo acrylics as usual.

    Hi! Dan.
    Amazing figure!
    I liked the color of the uniform and the fresh tone very much.
    The color of the cover of a helmet is also wonderful.
    As usual, it's the gorgeous finish.
    I congratulate completion.

    Hi Joe...

    for this figure I mixed sunny skintone with burnt cadmium red, orange brown, flat brown, yellow tan and a little bit of cavalry brown as it is a very dominating color. I don't have exact amounts of each so I just mix it until I'm happy with the basecoat. I then take this mix and use 3 hi-lites using sunny skintone to lighten each one more and more. Then I blend. Then I take the lightest mixture already lightened with sunny skintone and I lighten that mix with basic skintone successively lighter and lighter. My final 2 hi-lites after I blend that mix is a glaze of strait basic skintone and my final hi-lite is a glaze of light flesh. These are all Vallejo colors by the way. Hope this helps you Joe!
