    This is the latest larger project after the Black Knight. It is a Michael Kontraras figure and is a superb casting with very little cleanup.
    It comes with a small base that I added an addition to. eterna03edtl.jpeg

    This was a small block of wood for a Tank that I cut down to size with the piece of knurled wood added and the knight base added at the top.

    I thought this would look good with the knight at the top.
    The knight comes with the Cross on the left knee pad and I decided to add another cross on the right knee pad also.
    The mountain has melting snow toward the base and snow on the top. eterna07edtl.jpeg

    Since he is an Eternal knight (therefor you cannot kill him). I thought that he might represent several factions, hence the Red and White crosses to represent the factions. eterna08edtl.jpeg

    A pattern was added to the left shoulder pad.:)

    Follows the working plates of colour. This is the first time I have heavily weathered the shroud.:D eternal.jpeg

    Reds and blues.

    And Danilo's flesh palette

    Close ups
    The base blue on the armour is Vallejo Gun metal blue. Some scale 75 metalics were used on the sword. Also some Reaper blue inks.

    Their is a modern gun that comes with the figure, but I decide to leave it off after painting it.
    This will be at the Reaper Convention this coming week-end. I was not sure he would be finished in time??

    All comments and critiques are welcome and encouraged.
    Thanks for looking.
    Cheers
