    Hi everyone...

    Sommetimes there are figures that we don't like at the first look but with time passing we change our view. That is what happened with the following White Models kit I've decided to paint.

    Sometimes the old figures attracts our attansion more, when they are forgotten. I am following your approach with great interest. The face looks promissing

    I have seen some nice painted examples of this old figure over the years. Great start on the face Mahmood and I'm sure this will be an excellent piece once finished too!

    Good evening...

    I agree with you Ometz...figures are expensive that's why I first select in my grey army.

    I will try a pink dress...

    Don't worry about progress being slow when it's this good. Rome wasn't built in a day.

    You're right about some old figures being really good - is is a beauty. Top painting there mate.
