    I'm painting my last sculpture for Miniaturas Fortes in order to have a new box art.

    First af all I glue as much of the figure as I can without troubling the painting.

    It is advisable to pay some attention to the fitting of the equipe in the back. I have glued the zeltahn on the gasmask to ease the further glueing.

    I have made the MG 34 strap with some paper and a bit of very thin copper wire.

    I have modelled a small terrain ona a masked base and, after these steps, have primed the figure with Citadel black primer.

    Thanks for looking!
    As usual, I have started painting the eyes. I have painted the white with Vallejo's Deck Tan 70986. Later, I have painted a black circle and on it, have painted eith a mix of Prussian Blue with Deck Tan an a touch of black. Finally I have added a twinkle mixing Prussian Blue with more Deck Tan.

    Thanks everyone!
    I have took some improvised photos, excuse me for the quality.
    I have painted the face in acrylics but want to to refining it at a later moment with some oil colours.
    After that I have painted the trousers in a soiled white and still am adding some effects of mud and grease, etc.

    I've been progressing slowly these days.
    This is how the figure is right now.
    Now I have to make some molds, so it will keep progressing slowly:

    Nice work on the marsh pattern Diego.
    What did you use as the sand brown base colour?

    Cheers,

    Hello Diego, I like the bulky appearance of the winter parka, and trousers, great drapery on those. Any chance of an assistant gunner, to go along with this MG'er??? Excellent painting Diego, I really like this one. Regards, SG:)(y)(y)
