    Just got going with this 54mm resin figure, made a start on the face, Painting is in acrylics so far.
    I have not painted a figure this small for ages so fingers crossed.
    Figure is from chronos.

    Considering you haven't painted this small in a while, it's off to a damn good start.

    I really like the tone in your face painting, it fits the figure perfectly.

    Thank you all very much, my preferred scale is 75mm but I could not resist this figure, so I had to give it a go.
    I added the holes in the shoes and did a bit more roughing up of the uniform.

    I had seen this one finished and posted on Facebook some time ago, I thought I was slow off the mark. Cheers Mike.

    Facially, he reminds me of actor Peter Wyngarde.

    It's been rather warm ( read HOT ) here in the UK over the past week or so and curtailed my painting. The weather has been getting cooler, so painting resumes.
    Just a quick pic to show the state of play at the moment.
