    Well Guys, after almost a year of nothing, I finally finished something and I'm actually making a post. Please forgive my absense. I hope these two will be the first in a line of projects I want to complete this year. Let me know what you think.
    I also have to thank Bill, he gave me some great advice on shadowing. I hope I did his advice justice.

    Nice job on the Vikings Brandy. Great blues and greens, and the beard on the second figure is also nicely done. The shield looks good too. What figures are these, and did you use oils or acrylics?

    You've got real knack for designs and motifs Brandy. That shield is excellent.

    Thanks Guys, I really appreciate the kind words. Thanks for the comments on the Shield as well I was a bit nervous on how it would look with the finished product.

    The snow was from Hudson and Allen, and it does have little reflector things in it. I like to use it on small projects like this one.

    I use tube oils on my skin tones. For clothing I like to use acrylics because to me they are easier when doing shadowing and highlights. On Metals I use powdered Printers' Inks mixed with a medium. Anything else is a mix of acrylic or oil in bottles. The first figure is the 54mm Viking from Andrea, and the actual kit comes with a dog. The second is Viking of Ruf Principality, IX-X Century a 54mm from Pegaso.

    I'm not sure my next project yet. I have several things out. But a good guess would be the Caped Crusaider i.e. Batman from Andrea and the Mexican Gunman from Pegaso. I will try to do some SBS photos. Both are nice kits which should make them even easier to paint.

    Once again Thank You to everyone.

    Nice work...if I could, may I suggest once you have finshed the highlighting and shading that you apply a thin glaze of the base color to blend the highlights and shading together so they arent as stark. The green on the first figger is nicely done and a very tough color to pull off; you did it very nicely.
    This is an excellent start.

    All the best

    Great Work with the vikings, The Pegaso Viking come with all the kits?, you know that I would love to paint a Viking but because of my terror to faces haven't buy one ;) , I like to way the Andrea Viking looks, I gone try to take my fear away and try this one.
