    Hi Guys,

    here is my latest. It's an older Metal Models Gordon Highlander. The sculpt is really good but a little old school and a little stiff. It was fun and it painted up nicely. I'm on a little bit of a run with the British Empire lately. This is the 3rd in row and the third figure of 2017.

    It's painted in acrylics.

    Thanks for looking. Again, please pardon the photos. I'm getting better but still have not cracked the code yet. :(

    Lovely work Mike. Yes, these older figures do look a little by comparison to the latest Tommy's War figures, but they still look beautiful when painted by someone with your talent.

    A very good looking subject, excellent diced band and exceptional paintwork. Are you trying to beat me by painting the British army first.

    Beautifull paintwork.
    The only comment that I couldwrite is on the eyes. (the difficult part of a figure). They are somewhat out of line.

    Anyone that can paint 'bloody tartan' immediately gets the thumbs up from me. Quality work, and a pleasure to view.

    Marc, thanks for comments. Here is a WIP of the face and eyes. I apologize that my pictures above don't clearly show the eyes. I've been playing around with a new camera lens and still learning. Sometime I think my I phone takes better pictures than my DSLR!

    Thanks Tony,

    The figure is a little stiff but it does hold up well to the test of time.

    Thanks Dan!

    Thanks Keith, you won't believe this but I was so sick of painting khaki that i couldn't wait to get to the tartan and hose! Now that is a glutton for punishment. :)

    Thanks Mark! The tartan was easy compared to the Khaki.

    Judging from the quality of the Kilt and Hose Tops Mike, I would say you got some real satisfaction from this Boy.

    This is much better. Now they are in line. Maybe (if you wish) you can re-shape his left eye at the top by painting a darker line into the upper eyelid. Just a small remark.
    Excellent job.
