    Guys, this is my version of the Errant Knight by Elgreco. A fine sculpt by Matt Grech. For those who want to have some fun painting something with no pressures at all, this is the piece. Two part cast, no clean up and minimal construction. Just concentrate on the painting. I highly reccommend it

    Stephen, terrific painting (y). But why does the bust remind me of you? Were you the model for this sculpt? :)

    Guys thanks. For those wondering about the flesh tones here's the mix:

    Base: AV983+845+915+black
    H/L: base +915 + 845
    H/H/L: H/L +845
    H/H/L 2: add 928 to the above
    L/L: base +859
    L/L/L: more 859
    L/L/L 2: touch of black to the above

    Hope this helps.
