    Hi mates!

    I'm sharing in my Facebook account some WIP pictures of my last commission work. But.... as I know that most of you don't use it FB.... I'm going to share it here.

    Feel free to ask and have in mind that is a WIP:

    Nice work mate. I have a couple of Jeff's figures tucked away. Ive been trying to get better at painting before I tackle them. Also have been after a good look at how others paint large scale german uniforms. Love it so far. Please keep the pics comming.

    Excellent work on the uniform so far.

    I have the same figure in progress and like it very much, it's very dynamic.

    One comment: the triangular section below the neck and within the uniform collar should be painted as skin as well. I had been wondering what to do with it and sent an email to the sculptor to check.

    @Chris: don't fall into the trap of not painting your nicest figures until you are better at painting. Your painting will improve a lot faster if you paint well-sculpted figures. And you'll enjoy painting more, which also helps. What's the worst that can happen? You can always strip the paint down again.

    Cheers

    Thanks Adrian. Good advice. Im nearly finished my current project, so when I get that cleared off the bench I will have a good look at the stash and summon some courage

    I like what you are doing with this one, very dark tones. I have noticed a few people are doing figures this way now, using a lot of black and washed out colours to get that look you see in the movies such as Band of Brothers and Saving Private Ryan. Cant wait till your next update

    Very nice. I second the previous post: what technique did you use to get texture on the helmet?

    Thanks for looking and comment mates!

    The helmet work was really easy. Just need a good color base an a little bit of sponge (from a blister or a miniature box) and stamp the paint with the sponge over the helmet using diferent colors.

    Here you've more steps. The color base of the pants and almost finished
