    Hi all , after a long time no paint, I managed to get this beautiful bust by Igor Danilkin and Stuart Hale completed . The build is great and sculpt is spot on with only minimal cleaning up of the resin. As always painted in acrylics with some air brush and oils for the metal work.
    Please feel free to comment and thanks for taking the time to look.

    That looks great Sam,
    It's probably the photos but is there more contrast in the coat? It looks kind of one tone. Maybe a wee pinwash over some bits to add depth? I'd weather him but I like to weather all my soldiers.
    The face is quite stunning, including the beard.
    Top job.
