    This is a great little figure that I have seen painted fantastically by several modelers. I thought I would try my hand. I have moved to acrylics recently, but the flesh is in oils.


    Thanks to Blabsy for his continued encouragement.

    A classic figure indeed. Great paint job.

    I hope you're going to add a bit of groundwork to the base to finish him off??

    Nice work (y)

    I've tried that figure myself and its harder than it looks as the khaki tends to blend in to one colour if not careful.

    You've painted this wonderfully and brought the figure to life.

    Thanks to everyone for their kind comments, I think I reduced the images too much as they were down to 40k,,

    groundwork is next Sand of course, and a bit of twisted rusty Afrika Korps? metal


    Cheers again
