    Hi,
    perhaps it's only my opinion, but do you think, since he fought in the sunny lands, he is too pale?
    I like the idea of the shield.
    Friendly

    Anthony, John and Marc many thanks for your comments, Anthony he does have a little sunburn which perhaps doesnt show up that well in the pics. Les

    I like the result a lot. Think the pics are not doing the piece justice though. Well done.

    Painting class, and above all accurate. My favorite is the Helmet .
    I'm excited and I think probably even have to start.


    Cheers

    Is the shield scratch-built or is it a spare part? Great piece, might add a shield to mine!(y)

    Many thanks, Eduardo, Dimitrios, Hendryk, Tony, Rob, Noel and Eddy. I appreciate your comments greatly.
    Dimitrios- yes the pics are not the best I admit, something I need to improve.
    Rob- The sheild is scratch built, wood and magic sculpt

    Great job Les, you just get better with every bust, keep 'em coming mate!

    Especially like the composition of the colours, recommend you try some of your well developed armour weathering techniques on the clothing. Would love to see some marmite tested maybe, am sure the rest of us can learn more from your experiments :)

    Can't wait to catch up again one day & talk busts.

    Trust the quakes are not causing undue grief to the family.

    Many thanks Craig and Mike for your comments.
    Mike used marmite technique on helmet, and apprehensive on weathering clothing, may take a few more figures/bust's to get into the swing. cheers Les
