WIP My colleagues' farewell presents :)

    God Willing I will complete my 25years of service in the Malta Police Corps this coming July 6th :)
    My last working day, again God Willing, will be April 6th, before starting a 3month termination leave till July 6th :D
    Anyway, I've decided to donate a figure each to my shift colleagues, which is comprised of three other males and a female colleague plus another figure to the WPC who manages our office. The deadline is obviously the 6th of April for all 5 figures so it MUST be a marathon :(
    It will serve a dual purpose.....first & foremost the donation which I COMMITTED myself to do, to give something to a group of people who were an integral part of my life for the last years, something, which as we all know cannot be bought off any ordinary shop shelve :)
    Secondly, I will sharpen my painting skills which have gone as blunt as a rusty beam :(
    So from my grey army I managed to pull these three gems for the boys :)

    Roman Centurian 90mm Young Miniatures
    Greek Hoplite 54mm Pegasus
    Viking 54mm Pegasus
    The Greek will be featured as a Spartan ;) while the Viking will be featured as a Saxon, to reach my mates' wishes :)

    The Draconia Shazirahs :)
    Bases are quasi rounded cork bark which was a sort of a branching flower pot during my married days :D

    Hi Ray,
    wonderfull start on each of those figures, mate. I personaly am most curious on the Roman centurion figure from Young, as mine is still waiting to be painted. The face on the roman is spectacular, will be following your attempt with big interest, my friend.

    best regards,
    R.L.

    Well done, that's something to be very proud of.
    And the commitment to give your colleagues some of your own art work is very generous.
    Goodluck Ray...and cheers.
