    The make or break on this great bust is IMO the leather jacket.

    Thanks for all the comments.

    It is basically Rons (Kagemusha) technique he did on the Gaul with some twists.

    Cheers Brian, It was Halfords primer then the base which were scale 75 acrylics for the browns and red browns. Vallejo german camo beige and orange for the basic highlights. The scale 75 paints dry supermatt and hold the oils well.
    If I ever reach your standard and win gold you've to collect it for me;)
