    I like the almost monochromatic green/brown color choices, and the shield replacing the other axe, a very clean paint job as well, but I have a feeling there`s a far better paint job here then what we see in the somewhat soft pics. :)

    Very pleasantly done, would be nice to see some lighter pics as mentioned
    in other comments, so that we can see more of what we suspect is a well painted figure, eg: light doesn't do it justice.

    Thanks for posting, RobH.:D

    Excellent work.
    I think it's very wonderful.
    I liked painting of pollution in particular.
    Painting of a shield is amazing.
    I congratulate completion.

    Very nicely painted John in great earthy tones which really suit this figure.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. I resized the pics in order to possibly give the figure some more clarity. Who knows, I'm still figuring out how to take decent photos.

    Many thanks guys. Yes, I really wanted the subdued muted tones for this figure. Since I concentrate mostly on WW2 figures and dios, the uniforms being naturally muted, it was a bit easier to get the mixes I wanted. One colour that I used quite a bit on this one was Sepia, of which I've become a big fan.

    Finally!!;) Glad to see you've spread your wings. Great job, mate. BTW as for the gift and a patient wife , I know what you mean. I gave Michele one of the Asian Empress busts as a Valentine Day gift. Two years later it is still sitting primed and waiting:)
