    The figure is a white metal 75mm of a Greek Mercenary with 11 white metal parts sandwiched between layers of foam for protection

    Above you see the parts

    greek 4.jpg greek11.jpg

    Above you see the front and back of the torso and the right leg which was cast separately. Dry-fitting the right leg to the torso was good with a tight fit.

    Above you see the front and back of the right arm and the shield which has the left arm cast into the shield. You can also see a casting spur on the back side of the shield that had to be carefully removed.

    Above you see the head with the crest as well as the sword scabbard.

    Above you see the head and helmet tilted back so we can see the detail of the face.

    Above you see the both sides of the cape as well as the pillar that fastens to the base and supports his right leg. There are locator holes in the top of the pillar for exact placement of the right leg.

    First ,I used a polyurethane( automotive) primer. As you can see above I have drilled the parts and inserted a paper clip for handling while I paint then put them back on the work base to dry.



    In my next posting we will start the painting fun with this figure.

    I used to metalic parts automotive ink with spray
    I like this ink because the pigment is very fine

    I painted the leather stripes with Humbrol 186 and 121. I used the same reference as the Pegaso box art ( graph design )
