    What a lovely piece of work! All of it is good, but I am especially impressed with the tunic. It looks as soft as wool...great work!

    For me the subtle shading of the blue & grey stands out too - great work.

    beautiful work I really like the subdued colours very natural. I was particlularly impressed with the boots. Do you use oils if so how did you paint the boots.

    Great work Dave,

    Thanks guys for all the comments, I realy enjoyed this one, such a beautiful kit worth the toil to paint this one.

    Hi Talino, sorry to disapoint, but I paint in acrylics, I suppose the equivalent to what I used would be a mix of madder brown and yellow ochre 50-50 mix then a touch of black, for the base colour, then once dry many washes of lamp black over the top, then once dry again washes of a satin coat making sure you dont go to close to the top edges and toes of the boots...

    I hope this helps

    Hi Marc, I have just started the Pegaso Templar Knight, thats next
