    Nice Mike ,I really like CSM figures but I have never seen them look that good before ! Got a couple of them in my stash as well. Those letters on the cap must have been a real bugger to paint .Do you use gloss varnish on the leather ?

    Thanks Ometz, Matt, Bob, Andy and Neil :)
    They are super sculpts from Andrei & new caster has helped too with real finesse in each one.

    Neil, I blend Vallejo Game Colour Ink in with Jo Sonja for leather typically.
    And yep lettering was fun, especially since I painted with flat then highlighted with metallics.

    Impressive Mike! Your painting technique of adding texture to almost every part of the figure is fascinating and you pull it off wonderfully. Not the easiest thing to do in 54mm, to say the least.

    Well done, (y)
