    Hi all,

    I finished this figure some time ago, but due to the bussy periode this time of year I hadn't time to post some pics. So here they are. The figure is in whitemetal, 54mm high by Andrea. The oil drum is by Resicast, the helmet by Warriors, the shoe by Verlinden en the small rat by Plus models. There is also a German newspaper hidden in the groundwork, but this doesn't show on the pics. This was by Alexander the Great, but I don't know if they still are in production? All is mounted on a custom made base by D.M.C. designs. All is painted in acryllics. As always I would love to hear all your comments, critism, etc...

    Merry christmas and have a splendid newyear,

    Gino

    Beautifully done Gino. The face is very expressive and perfect for the scene. The only thing I noticed, and I don't mean this as a criticism, just an observation, he could probably be dustier/dirtier.

    Hey Gino,

    I would have to say this is by far your best work. I think you have done a nice job in all areas. I really like the look of the whole scene. Congratulations on a nice job.

    Excellent, Gino. Figure is very well painted. And, the composition and base are really eye catching.

    Hi all,

    thanks for the nice comments.

    Hi Lou,

    Well to make it realistic he sould be dirtier. i didn't want to hide all my paintwork under to much "dirt". I added some Mig pigments (Europe dust and brick dust) but that's about it. Artistic freedom or he has just arrived ;)

    Greetz and have a great end of the year and an eve better 2005,

    Gino
