    Here is my latest commission work which I have entitled "In The News". It's based off of a famous picture of an 82nd Airborne trooper reading the newspaper on a window sill of a damaged building shortly after the "D Day" drops into France. He is a 70MM offering from Historic Art Miniatures and is all around a fantastic kit. I've added the damaged curtain section as well as the damaged pane of glass the window molding and the sign. He is painted as always in Vallejo Acrylics and was really an enjoyable project for me.

    Excellent painting on the M-42 uniform and the news paper looks really good the way you painted it. What Vallejos did you mix for the M-42s?

    Not my period but a superb piece of work, a real snapshot of history in miniature beautifully painted. It seems to me that manufacturers put a lot more effort into the scenic backgrounds for 20th Century figures than they do for earlier pieces, I suppose it is due to better photographic documentation, rather than relying on more glorified artistic renderings from earlier centuries.

    Excellent painting Dan, you've really brought this little scene to life. The only thing that bothers me is the broken pane of glass hanging precariously above the soldier. If it was me, I'm not sure I'd be so relaxed!!
