WIP Critique French Infantryman (AWI) and Fallschirmjaeger

Discussion in 'vBench (Works in Progress)' started by Eludia, Nov 3, 2016.

    My shed has been getting an upgrade recently so I've been away from my bench for a while but it's all done now and I'm chuffed to be back painting in familiar surroundings.

    I've been working on these two 1/16 busts from Stormtroopers. The French Infantryman is painted in oils and is pretty much finished and the Fallschirmjaeger is painted with Jo Sonja acrylics and still needs a bit of work on the webbing straps and some touch-ups.

    Both busts were a joy to paint although I have struggled at times trying to control the acrylics and get to grips with paint consistency, particularly for glazing.

    I haven't got my camera set back up in my shed yet so all I've got for now are some quick iPad snaps. I'll maybe get some better pics at the weekend.

    Eludia, Thanks for sharing! I appreciate it.

    I have two Stormtroopers busts on my workbench as well. Really hope they do some more in this scale!

    Your work looks good. Can't wait to see the next set of pics!

    All the Best, Terry Martin-Member of the Atlanta Miniature Figure Society

    Thanks Terry (y)

    I'd love to see what you do with those little mini-busts, I hope you'll post pics. I have another 3 or 4 in the series to do and, like you, would love to see more.
