    Hi, all!
    I have several minis to post on the forum. Let's start with this Art Girona release, the Raúl García Latorre's Mountain Man in 70mm. An interesting miniature to paint as you can try several different textures and effects:

    The miniature is inspired in a print by James Bama:

    I wish to say thanks to Guy Herrick for his help in the documentation process of this miniature. Also, there's a video where I give a demo on the buff texture of the coat during the Soldat de Plom show (in spanish). You can find it here:

    Brilliant paint job by Fernando but it just might be me ,but i get the impression that the eyes are a tad too low on his face, anatomically speaking.Welcome other opinions.

    Excellent paint job Fernando! Lovely looking figure and base!
    Nice with the ice/snow on the tassels (or whatever it's called).

    Cheers,

    I would agree with that observation Brian, particularly when compared to the Bama illustration. Well painted and other than that a nice figure!

    silky smooth as always sir. I am of the same thought about the smooshed face, but it doesn't detract from the stellar painting.

    Thanks, guys!
    I really appreciate you like it. About the eyes, it could be either the detail that Brian points out or that the small and short nose makes them look that way :awesome:
