    Hello Guys .

    Some times we see nice figures on the internet, and we are impressed , but then fr a long time we dont see them painted either on shows or on the net , for no specific reason.

    So i was moved to paint one of these. The Elite miniatures 70 mm Lansquenet.

    [IMG]

    My inspiration and motivation to paint this was Pepe Gallardo's excellent painting (i confess that he is one of the 2-3 painters, i am fully inspired from ).

    So i paint it .

    The figure is nice as sculpting, but ........there was a problem at least on my copy , but i guess on most or all castings.

    The left side mold line run across the middle of the cheek of the guys face, on his nech , and shoulder till down to the feet. The problem is that the face part is deep and difficult to remove with out making any damage to the sculpting. i used every tool and method i knew for this purpose but took me 3 evenings to clean it before i primed.

    Then priming showed a ghost trace of the line , even if it was not visible withthe eye. So i stripped and redone the cleaning , and finally made it !!!!!

    Its painted with Valejo acrylics, few oils and few printers inks.

    i just hope you like it. I tried to give an artistic paint tone , not so technical , but maybe a bit more romantic. I dont know if i made it ...but i tried !!!!


    have fun guys

    Hi Costas

    Great painting and a wonderful groundwork. What do you use for it? That looks natural.

    One of your best pieces so far Costas! Very nice and straighforward and the ground work is a nice simple compliment to the figure. I would have liked to see the barrel of the gun drilled out, but a very minor point. Great stuff!

    Costas, Nice paintjob. Fortunately you were able to note the mold line before moving on to painting the figure.~Gary

    Costas,

    That is sure a great figure. I ignore this figure because the hobbybank was empty at that moment. But when i see it i really like to have one. Sure Pepe is also a favorit of mine.
    I must admit you did a great job on this.
