    Hi all!

    Despite Tech problems here in chez gothique ( I don't like Windows7, no siree! ) I have been spending a bit of time on this lovely sculpt by Laurent that I picked up at Euro!

    I'm still installing my Photo-editing software so these are just what I sorted with Picassa :)

    This ticked all the boxes for me, nice face, bust, German and no need for a camo design ;)

    Painted with my usual mix of Games Workshop and Vallejo acrylics there is still much to do....

    Love the face mate. Are you using a slightly different palette?

    Cheers Carl!

    No the palette is exactly the same but I'm trying for a softer overall effect... but keeping the sharp contrasts at the very highest highlights.

    Hi mark,yet again the work you have done on the face is beautiful and those eyes are great,i saw this piece at euro and was'nt sure whether to get it myself but i decided on something else,i think the piece is lovely and i'm sure you'll turn this into another outstanding piece to follow on from your Guderian one,well done mate (y)
