    Hola, nano,

    I like the final effect. For me, it suits fine for a campaign, as opposed to a parade, look. Besides, you have to take into account the scale effect - I think you have to be careful with shine, sometimes there is too much of it; I would say you have managed a good representation.

    Keep up with this... I am impatient to see how you address that shield! ;)

    Hi.
    I finished the inside shield and now I'm going to the outside.
    I've chosen the bull's head pattern.I'ts in its first steps.
    First I draw the general volume,then outline it and then correct the mistakes.

    Your style is just stunning. To me personally, you and Hardy both have impeccable taste when it comes to painting figures. Lovely color choices, rich flesh tones and subtle gradation to the blending.

    Hola Jaume,

    That sheild is looking super so far. Did you outline it in white first and then fill in with black?

    Well as a Greek ..i have to say that u re doing very nice job so far .Just some hints to help
    Spartans battle clothin was coloured dark red , so that in case of battling injurie the enemies could not see the blood on the spartans clothe and take extra courage. Also Thermopyles battle era and some decade before that the Spartans had adopt the only beard style with out moustache at all.

    I love u r work in all and the face - shield work is just amazing !!!
    Waiting to see it finished, then i ll get it out of the closet !!!!

    :eek: Jaume, an excellent figure with painting skills that are too, excellent. Also a nice change to see how you change ideas / techniques between "historical" and your more common WW2 figures. Keep us updated! excellent work :)

    Hi folks.
    Thanks for the nice comments.

    Anders.I paint first the main volume with black and then outline it with white.It's a bit difficult to draw such a design freehand and get it symetric and centered.May be I'll use an stencil next time...:)
    A pic of the next step...near to finish now
    Best regards
