    I completed this excellent 1/10th scale bust several months back it is from Grenadier Miniatures and represents a Trooper of The Grenadier Guards ( Camel Corp 1885). I painted him mainly in Jo Sonja acrylics. P1240501 (Medium).JPG P1240503 (Medium).JPG P1240504 (Medium).JPG P1240497 (Medium).JPG P1240498 (Medium).JPG

    Wow! Superb painting John! After doing the Oniria 36mm Camel Corp vignette, it is great to see a larger scale version. (y)(y)(y)

    One of my favourite busts of yours John.
    So good to see him completed.
    He looks weary from long days & nights.
    Subtle, clean tones & palette too.
    Very nice.

    Another winner, John - subtle acrylic tones, & I like the worn leather effect on the bandolier. Another nice touch is the 2 rounds missing from the bandolier.
    A great piece of paintwork.

    Outstanding painting John. Absolutely top shelf and many moons above my standard. I haven't mastered acrylics. Any tips other than patience?
