    Hi all,
    This is my latest finished bust from Stormtroopers. It is a Gordon Highlander 1914 sculpted by Carl Reid.
    This is a brilliant figure by an amazing sculptor, it was a real pleasure to paint.
    The bust has been finished off with acrylics (life colour), some air brushing and oil paints. The face was painted with Vallejo colours building up in translucent washes.
    This is my first WW1 figure of any kind and would much appreciate any pointers and information that you think will improve my technique and knowledge.

    Thanks, Sam B

    I like the color of the uniform in particular.

    Looks a lovely job Sam, love the details on the chevrons and the webbing. My only critcism would be is the the blue dicings should be darker, almost black.
