    Another superb piece Brian. You are one of the most consistent artistic painters I have ever seen. Very envious :arghh:

    Thanks for your kind comments lads,much appreciated.I'm always a bit frustrated after taking the pictures, as I never seem to be able to duplicate what they look like in the flesh,thankfully the figure's are usually a bit better.As for the eyes Ron and Marc I just paint the iris's with highlights and shading and then add the catchlight which should be just touching the iris and pupil.This brings the eyes to life.

    It's called "The Chieftain" and you can order it from Heroes and Villains site which I can highly recommend all of their products.

    Like it alot, the persona of Knight of Santiago suits this bust much better than clansman - very clever idea.
