    Hello friends,
    This is my latest work on the Legacy Miniatures new release.
    The bust is about 200 mm , the casting is great and the painting can go very easily.
    More details here:
    http://www.planetfigure.com/threads/legacy-miniatures-new-release.54437/
    For the painting I used Vallejo acrylics except for the minor metallic parts where I used oils with printer's inks and some humbrol metalcotes for the barrel of the riffle.
    Any comments are always welcome.

    I'm glad you posted this here as I prefer not to comment on the painting of the boxart in a News item and I wanted to say bravo for the handling of the leather and the wood on the rifle. It's so nice to see these with an appropriate finish and it makes them both look so much more realistic (y)

    Since you asked for comments, I feel there's too much contrast on the uniform, particularly on the upwards-facing planes of the chest and upper arms. I'd also suggest having more 5 o'clock shadow colour, which would bring some much-needed colour contrast to the face.
