    Looking great so far, Brian. Beaut painting, as always mate. He's starting to get that battle-worn, dirty look already.

    Coming along nicely Brian. I like the subdued brickish red. When you started off I thought you were going too far toward the bright scarlet but I should have known better.

    Hi mate
    Awesome mate love the worn weatherd painting indicative of what the Infantary solider looks like when fighting during any period a true interpretation of of the fighting soldier , all to often figures are produced to clinical and look like they are off the parade ground
    My dad who served in Normandy / Holland Germany at one point had German parachute scarf cut off German flying boots and a Walher p38 and and an Mp40 regulation no effective yes , in the Ardennes he wore a reversible German smock white side out
    Great work mate

    I love the color of the oil skin cover on the head gear , it looks like his mouth is dry great effect on his lips , I think Jimbo was telling me once that the one side of there faces became quite blackened from the discharge of the musket going to give my guardsman a bit of a filter
    Cheers Chris
