    Hi EVERYBODY

    If you don't want to actually paint something check your GA and see if anything coukd be donated to Kevin Dunne ..the mastermind behind this ...

    Or donate a painted figure to the display ..they will be kept on permanent display at the museums

    Something to think about

    Hi guys

    Quick picture update , 90% finished Uniform, shirt and tie on Billy , will probably push the highs a touch more and possibly shadow a bit more towards the lower edge .

    Need to start and finish off Lt Cairns fleshwork first!

    All done everyone......well, save for some touchups I'll probably do tomorrow or the next day. If anyone sees something screwy, by all means let me know so that I can correct it.

    Kev, good work on Bishop. You could give the shirt of tie a different tone to break up the khaki. Jacket, tie and shirt would be made from different materials, so th colour wouldn't always be the same hue.

    Hi everyone

    Bit of an update I decided I am going to finish these first , working on Lt Cairns in the background !!!

    Yesterday was spent at my house with my mate Jimbo so between fighting the biscuits from his hand I did this

    Billy ....lightened tge tie and short slightly and highlighted the VC ribbon a tiny bit more

    image.jpeg

    Our Frenchie .....did the main straps will put some wear on them I think , also painted one of the pouches as a cloth material using this as my reference ...so many variations of these pouches

    image.jpeg

    Little more work to do on them , the other pouch will be leather but slightly different in colour to straps

    image.jpeg

    Also added and base coated the baynot frog I made

    image.jpeg

    The uniform colour is closer to the first picture ...iPad pics and the light keeps changing !

    Thanks for looking in

    Nap

    PS Woukd have done more but protecting the fridge from a marauding Jimbo !!!!
