    Hello fellow Planeteters.

    Taking advantage of our Easter holidays, I managed to finished this nicely sculpted figure from Elisena. Michel Ney himself :). I really enjoyed painting this figure, so here it is... ready for your comments and critics.

    Nice one mate. I especially like your work on the eyes, they look especially well painted. Groundwork is excellent and is something you've obviously paid a lot of attention to. Very well done, I really like it. ;)
    You won't be surprised to know I have this in the grey army as well... :lol:

    Xenofon,
    he looks great! I love the snow and the mud worked into it. How did you do it?

    Thanks you all for your very encouraging comments. The groundwork huh? Well first of all I sculpted the whole thing with 2 part epoxy putty, giving it the shape I wanted. I then painted it a dark brown color. I added the broken tree (natural part from a bigger branch). I then added the dirt and painted in various brown shades. Then I mixed white glue, water and Andrea snow and applied it whenever I was thinking it's necessary. When it was fully dried I did a few washes with burnt umber in order to represent the mud.
    Hopefully that may help. If you have any further questions.. feel free to ask.

    Hi Xenofon,

    A great figure my friend. His face really looks cold and the snow is just perfect. Will you put it on the Athenes show? If so, reserve some place to take a medal back home.

    Congrats on this great figure,
