WIP ECW Pike Officer by Sarnia Miniatures.

    When I purchased Bill Speakman VC from Sarnia I saw this bust and liked it so I have had this on the back-burner for a little while.

    I painted the face the same time as I painted Speakman's to save the Artist's oils wasting. so the rest has now had the base colours blocked in and the waist sash I added the shade areas with a darker colour then blocked in a thinned red washed, more of this to follow.
    The leather cross straps are in Artist's oils, both slightly different brown mixes, the metalwork is AK Gunmetal. The thick buff coat I used Vallejo MC 914/119 Green Ochre.

    Again I used Artist's oils to cover the felt hat Paynes Grey straight from the tube and stippled it on using a brush like this:

    Pleased with this felt look texture result but will have to wait for this to fully dry before touching it.

    The gauntlet and the pike still need some paint but I used the AK Gunmetal on the pointy bit.

    That's it for now,

    Cheers Geoff

    Another great start Geoff. Are there enough kits out there to keep up with you? Not a company I’ve used before but recently purchased their Lawrence of Arabia bust so keen to see how you find this one.

    The ECW Pike Officer has been finished, the coat I have dirtied up using Artist's oils Davy's Grey, I thought it looked too clean.
    The hat I gave a good coat of Nuln Oil wash from Citadel to darken it but not lose the texture look.
    The pike tassel painted in Black Red and then highlighted in Flat Red, pike staff in Old Wood and gauntlet with Vandyke Brown Artist's oils.

    Enjoyed this one and must have another look at the Sarnia shop to see is anything else catches my eye, perhaps Lawrence of Arabia??

    Cheers
