Completed Critique Culloden Highlander

    This is my Culloden Highlander made by Kirin. This is my second attempt at the 120mm figure as I bought it when it first came out many years ago. This was a tribute piece to the late great illustrator Rick Scollins who is still sadly missed by us all.

    I bought this piece a couple of years ago and it is quite rare to get hold of these days. I have used different mediums but mainly oils and acrylics.

    I hope you like it and as always I welcome your comments.

    Excellent job John! Nice clean painting and neat merger with the base. I mean merger of the kit's base with the wood base...
    Maybe the tartan could have a little more shading, but it being tartan it is hard enough already to paint so this is a minor thing. Maybe some carefully controlled blackish washes in the shades will do the trick. If you feel like it of course.

    This is indeed a rare piece by now. I saw it at a show recently where the seller wanted 120 Euros for it! It wasn't sold eventually, but he didn't want to bargain either.

    Cheers,

    I'm painting this figure at the moment. Unfortunally I bought a recast without knowing it. I shall not show it here, i believe it will give more recasters the idea that there stuff sell......

    But mine is not so good as yours, missing some parts if i look right, the sword is not so nice...
    So never buy a recast.

    John,,,,did some remarkeble painting on this one... Great.

    John - that looks very good. I like the base and the whole display. I know how hard it is to paint a tartan. You have done a good job in my opinion. My own feeble attempts were mediocre. I am lucky to have one of these kits in my possession.
