    Very nice figure and good paint job. The jawline is a bit 'Desperate Dan' for my taste but I shall still pick one up in due course for use it with my WNW collection.

    Beautifully painted, as usual Mike.

    Cheers,

    P.S. The facial sculpt vaguely reminds me of someone; but certainly not Göring.

    Hi guys - thank you to each of you for commenting.
    Accept critique of face not as close resemblance as you'd hope for.
    Still a beautiful little sculpt & lots of fun to do.
    Ref leather - always trying to vary & test new approaches.
    This time tried some Reaper MSP paints from local Games shop - these provide 3 tones: Base, Shadow & light.
    Added a little Jo Sonja Satin varnish into paint mix to lift jacket Shane from other parts.
    Then used Games Workshop as an alternative leather for black belt & shoes.
    Hope this is of value.
    Onward to my next project.

    Undoubtedly the work of painting has enhanced the sculpture of the piece.
    The texture of the pants is excellent!
    Mike for president! :)

    Mike,
    I did not realize this was a completed post, so I am tardy. Great paint on such a small fellow and excellent on the leather.
    Cheers

    Hi guys valu you taking your time to comment here - thanks!

    Ta! Maurizio - was particularly pleasing with his pants - funny how you often find one area of a figure seems to work while other are not quite as you'd like.

    Yes John, maybe slightly against PF rules nowadays, however I choose to put all my projects on VBench to keep my sharing all in same place. Handy to find & refer back to albeit there doesn't seem easy way to direct a link to exactly my VBench? http://www.planetfigure.com/members/mike-the-kiwi.2245/
