    Very cool.

    How did you do the ice, mud and slush? Looks very realistic. (y)

    The ice is from Andrea. I covered the whole ground with natural dirt, let it dry and then i added the snow in random spots. Then i colored a few spots with Humbrol 186 and then i covered the whole groundwork with gloss cote giving that muddy impression.

    Xenofon,

    What a coincidence. I just finished mine also this evening. But with putting it on the base i brook the bajonet of the gun.
    Maybe nitpicking but the plate on the bearhat is from "yellow copper "so it has to be a gold shine. Also the buttons on the coat are from yellow copper. The sword not is black.

    Hope i didn't hurt you with this, but it is very well painted.

    Marc i really appreciate your comments. FIrst of all the buttons are painted with gold color as long as the plate on the bearhat. I just weathered them a lot so they are not so shiny. The sword is not black? It looked black to me at the boxart. What color should it be?
    Thanks a lot for your comments.
