    Hello everyone
    I am a beginner and this is my first painted figure
    I think I should pick a 54mm one as my first figure, it took me almost half a year's free time to paint this 75mm one, but luckily, I finished it. :)
    Hope you like it.

    Good start. You made it not so easy to yourself to paint white.
    In my opinion white and black are the thoughest colors to paint.
    You did it great.

    Hello,
    Gordy, Whitney, James, Chan, Rob, Marc, Ray, Mario, Jay, Mat, thank you very much for your comment and I'm glad you like.

    Hi, Gordy, thank you very much for uploading the image for me, Im totally a forum noob...

    Hi ,Chan, I am really glad to meet you here, I saw your new work on imx365, it also reminds me your Alexander the Great many years ago, these are all quite impressive. (Sorry im in the office, can not type in Chinese)

    Hi Marc, thanks for your advice, I am totally agree with you, this white colour almost drived me creazy. I was intend to mix colour by myself at the begining, but I soon realized that was impossible for a beginner like me, so I decide to use the Andrea miniatures' white colcour paint set, that really helped me a lot.

    Hi Mario, this is indeed a very well sculpted figure and the most important thing for me is that there is no complex heraldry on it :D

    Are you a beginner?
    I'm not believed.
    Indeed a wonderful work!
    I liked an expression of a shield very much.
    I congratulate completion.
