    Since the first day I saw this figure painted by the masterhands of Ray Ferrugia i promised myself to paint this figure to.
    Unfortunally it is very hard to find and buy this figure.
    A member of Planetfigure gave me the opportunity the buy this figure, it was in the original box and only opend for inspection.
    After downloading the pictures from Ray i got up to cleaning the figure and started paint.
    Never, I say never i had a figure in my hands that fits so easy, and paint so smooth.......
    It is a shame that PM is no longer on the market.
    So, I had not the intention to copie the figure of Ray, but the colors he used where so great, that i start with them (only in oils) and the closer i got to the finish I had created my own colors.
    Let me here what you guys think.

    Nice work on a classic Marc. The face stands out as a really good bit of brushwork (y)

    Very nice marc
    I don't think I ever had a Ray Lamb figure where the parts didn't fit like a glove,
    the quality of metal used and the crispness of casting was unique

    Marc I know the job Ray has done with this figure and yes his colours are exceptional but I do believe you have done a wonderful job on this, so please dont put all the praise you deserve onto Rays original painting. Very very good job mate.

    Very clean paintwork. I love the metals, face, boots, arrows, and the rock from the ground,but I´m not sure I like the yellow. It´s too clear for my taste, but is your choice of color, and I must respect it.

    Thanks Don,
    Yes i'll be at Euro, but without figures. My painting is not half as it should be to put my figures into the contest.

    Very nice Mark. Nothing like oils for the effects on leather. Well done.
