    Hello Hello .

    Lately work has been really "thick" fro me and thats a reason my painting gets slower and slower .

    last night i managed to come to an end with Pegaso 90mm Templar .

    [IMG]

    I tried a different approach for painting this big piece regarding contrasts and techniques.. i hope you just like it .

    But even if you dont , you must know i have spend many many hours of effort !!! LOL

    The base is not totally finished , as it expects the other figure of the "Ghulam Warrior " from Romeo Models ,that will be started soon . Then i will make final addittions and arrangements

    Any comment is welcome guys .

    Thanks

    Looks fantastic Costas. I like the idea of the steps supported by the pillars but question the last set of stones........what is supporting them?

    Great presentation and a great idea for mounting the figure.

    I have to say that I rarely get this kind of reaction to a post, but here goes: This looks real. You have really done an amazing job capturing the drama and brutality of the scene, with the dirty surcoat, facial expression, etc.

    Really an excellent job - and that background and lighting. Wow. Not to mention the incredible base--is it out of the box, or scratchbuilt?

    Congratulations on a superb figure and execution.

    Kyle ;)

    Guys thanks for your commenting

    The base is made of the two parts from stairs that are included inthe 2 figure kits of the Templar and the Ghulam Warrior that will be the figure tocomplete the vigniette .

    The capturing is a part of a stairway soits cutted to both ends as it should be continued if we could see the whole scene. And the mounting of the stairway through columns in a bath of dark greenish waters was my idea for raising the 2 figures and showing the drama of the battle on a higher level , and showing the elevation feeling . So half of the base (stairways ) is the kits bases , and the rest is my idea and scrathcing execution . I hope it will end nicely with the next figure thats pretty hard topaint as there is a complicated armor and many details

    Great work Costas. The base is really appropriate to the figure, and sets off your paintwork beautifully.

    Perikli , i think i already answered Guys question , this is a capturing of a part of a stairway is not the whole scene .. i wish i could recreate it all !!!!

    I tried to use more intense contrasts and follow the era and situation of the battle regarding ,the weathering, the dirtying , and the feeling . I mean i didnt try to make a clean painting. Also instead of using pastels , or other add ons for dirtying and weathering thefigure i painted everything on the figure as a part of the painting process. And i feeel thats making it more realistic and not as a make up work ,thats some times figures with addon weathering show

    *claps hands* Bravo my friend Costas. Knowing from first hand the hours that you spent on this figure, I have to say that you really did a great job. You whites are really nice and I like them a lot. Same thing goes for the shield too. Keep it up brother. :)

    Costas, excellent! I like your style with this one, if this is a different technique for you-keep with it! The colors are great and done very well. The metals are incredible also. Do you paint them or buff/polish them? I can hardly wait for the other figure to complete this scene! Please share when finished with it.

    Thanks a lot Xenofon and Christos .

    Ghulam Warrior is not started yet , as i will be heavily work engaged till next Monday . So i presume then i will slowly start to prepare the figure . But there is no rush . I expect to finish him by the end of July

    Scott and maurizzio thanks for your compliments

    Scott the metals are buffed and treated with numerous washes of oil colors in different mixes and concistencies .

    The helmet is treated in different way

    I used a new technique i invented and i call it "tappered metal" . Its not that orthodox as it took me 2 evenings to complete it but i like that factthat at the end i got the result i had visualised !!
