    Hi Andrew,
    Thanks for your comments.
    Go for it mate. Crack on and get it done. Loads of good photos of uniforms and webbing from Alan on this thread to provide you with inspiration.

    Dang fine job Tony, once again, and sorry for my tardiness. I understand the need for a diversion from time to time and a great diversion it be, the HS technique. I've got a box load of half built kits from a model club and plan to refine my skills on them, soon.

    Excellent figure Amigo, always a pleasure to see your work.


    Cheers, Ski.

    Hi Ski,

    Good to hear from you buddy. Hope everything's going well for you.

    Like most modellers, I occasionally need a change of subject to refresh my mojo, and for me there's nothing better than a small tank to distract me from figures and busts. I've loved the new weathering techniques introduced recently by Mig Jiminez and others, and I thought it was time to dip my toe into the pool and give it a try.

    It's also good practice for me in case I decide to use the hairspray technique on a figure or bust in the future.

    Thanks again for your comments.

    All is well on the Northern Front, just trying to get some consistent bunker time myself. Keep us posted on the diversionary exploration.;)

    Cheers, Ski.

    Super flesh colours and your explanation on how you do it is really interesting, I have only been using Artist's oils for skin but you have given me a new idea for using acrylics, thanks.

    Hi Geoff and Gells, thank you gentlemen. I hope you get something out of understanding some of the techniques I use. I never paint a bust or figure the same way twice, as I believe it's always best to experiment and try new things. Sometimes it works and sometimes it's an epic fail. Most of the time it works OK, and sometimes I learn things from my failures. I appreciate your comments.

    I think you've done an excellent job on him, the fantastic sculpt will take you so far but your painting has really brought him to life.
    Thanks,
    Scotty.

    Sorry Tony, I got a bit confused, just come out of hospital and thought it was on my thread.
