    This is the Infantryman completed with base.
    Some all round pics for you to peruse.

    This guy goes together brilliantly. The lower legs fit just above the knee pads and the arms slot into place with no need for filling. Really well put together sculpt from Moz.

    Hi Grant
    This is an awesome piece of art work every element from the smallest to the biggest being given the same attention which brings together this wonderful sculpt , which if I had sculpted would make me extremely pleased that the sculpt has been brought to life I am sure Moz is .
    All the best Chris
    (Can't sculpt) by the way lol

    Top paint-job Grant. Looks terrific. The only thing I'm not too keen on about the sculpt is the head. It reminds me very much of the "new Action Man with gripping hands and realistic hair" from the '70s.

    Wow, this is amazing! I liked the figure when I first saw it and now it looks even better painted up... Well done.

    Moz should really be proud with what you did with his figure.

    Fantastic paint job on this Grant.I couldn't get up to the Perth show to see it but Ross tells me that it looks even better in the flesh. Congratulations on winning with this at the Show.
    I've assembled one ready to paint and will be using your pics as a guide.
    Cheers

    Top job Grant, superb painting all round. He does remind me of Action Man, as Steve mentioned, but that does not detract from the fantastic job you've done with this great sculpt. Obviously a well deserved win (reading between the lines, I'm presuming this was at the Scottish Nationals?). I doff my hat to you sir...

    Thanks for sharing with those of us who couldn't make it to the show (y)

    Thanks to everyone who commented.

    Hi Steve (Babelfish), yeah mate I wasn't sure about the head at first either for the same reason, but once it's painted it really grew on me and now I feel that it matches the ruggedness of the rest of him and the strong confident pose. He does have an alternative head which I intend to paint as soon as I get time.
    However he's a mean looking Mofo right enuff.

    Dont know how i missed this one mate, great job you did with him.
    Certainly couldn't miss it on the table at Perth, looks even better in the flesh.

    Hi Roy,

    The base cost me 99 pence from my local charity shop (remember, I'm Scottish), it's actually a cheap travelling chess set but the wood looks like excellent quality.

    I did a Step by Step for the MTP here:

    http://www.planetfigure.com/threads/multicam-200mm-marine-afghanistan.53550/

    I lightened the black and white streaks for the new Infantryman as these were too bold.


    Also here for the above guy where Taff has posted some excellent reference pics of the boots and helmet as well.

    http://www.planetfigure.com/threads/mitches-200mm-afghan-infantryman.62958/

    If you need any more advice please just ask.

    Cheers,

    Gells
