    Hey there , just completed this beautiful figure from Andrea . The only problem I had was the horses head was way too narrow for the body so had to use a fair amount of Miliput but other than that it had perfect fit of parts . Hernan Cortez 01.jpg Hernan Cortez 02.jpg Hernan Cortez 03.jpg Hernan Cortez 04.jpg Hernan Cortez 05.jpg Horse and leathers in Oils and the rest Acrylics . Wanted him to look clean and tidy like hes fresh off the boat . As usual my crappy camera has washed the contrast out of the photos , I need to spend money on a camera instead of buying more figures for the grey army ! Comments welcome and thanks for looking .

    Hi Neil, fantastic painting as always mate. A beautiful figure! I love the depth of tones you always achieve with your horses.
    Andrea figures are sometimes a bit touch and go with the fit of their parts, but as with this one, they make up for it in character.

    You have a very clean, crisp painting style that really shows through on this piece.
    Very nice work indeed there.

    Hi Neil

    Just studied this little guy & neat to see the clean, clear style on this one.

    Perhaps I'd have dirtied him up a bit but do get the backstory you were after.

    Particularly like haughty look you've caught on his face too.
    Arguably some disdain for the New World ;-)
    I know a favourite subject too, so good to see you tackling him.

    Keep the faith mate.

    Very nicely done. The horse looks awesome. Your colours on this figure are very deep and rich.

    Well done
