    Just finished painting this JMD figure.As usual needs a bit of fine tuning after taking picture and i'll probably add to the groundwork.Added another picture showing the difference by fiddling about with the camera settings.I'm getting tooooo old for messing about with camera's ,so it's back to painting for me.

    Well done! I have this one in my to-be-done drawer. I also use the brown/black oil paint treatment on metal kits, but I've never done it on a resin kit. Now I have to try.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    Hi Danis
    I used a mix of red and green umber highlights were naples yellow and tit white,shading was done adding more green umber.Unfortunately i can't remember what red i used but it should get you results with any red.If you want a faded finished tone just add tit white and leave out the naples yellow.

    Hi Brian, Thanks for the tip on the Browns, I've just bought some Greenish Umber because someone was using it in their face mix.
