    Hello fellow figurerers. I just finished this figure and i would like to share it with you. Unfortunately the figure was not easy to clean and assemple, since it is an old kit with bad casting. Nonetheless i tried my best to give this kit a life.
    All comments and critics (Apart for the shield :p ) are welcome.

    Nice. Very subtle but effective skin tones and very clean looking painting throughout. Great Job!

    Thanks a lot for your nice comments. The whole figure is painted with oils of course (as always) and the metal parts are painted with printer inks.

    Beautiful work Xenofon..........there is a large degree of satisfaction in giving life to an old kit. You have done an exceptional job in doing so.

    Xenofan, looks very good.

    Hey Xenofon
    I never would take a picture with flashlight, the shadow is too hard and give you wrong colours.
    Take a stativ(dont know english word) and put out the flashlight.

    I like the metalwork on the shield and the helmet, also
    the groundwork(Whom can I call on that number :lol: )
    In my opinon the feets to clean in that mud or dust.
    You did a good Job.
    Thanks for sharing. ;)

    Good Point there Stephan. I will add some mud on the feet too. Also thanks for your tip for the flashlight.

    Roc this is the Andrea kit.

    The figure looks "alive". Do not bother for the "episima" - the 'heraldry' on the shield- since they were painted by soldier and not artist hands in reality !

    Do not use yellow colour on ancient greek clothes since this colour is considered mostly suitable for females, as the pink in modern times.
