    Pretty pretty good work on such a big figure my good friend. I Ilike especially the face painting, and the modestly worn look of him . Also your snow is looking pretty pretty god. Would you share the making of it ?

    Congrats

    Thanks a lot Kosta!
    The base was first painted with some browns,after a black primer.
    Then after a while I used a mixture with mig acrylic medium,snow(deluxe materials) and a little wood glue and aplied in several layers.This will look like cold,thick snow with ice.I used a drop of brown colour(just a little).Then, I used several mixtures of more snow and less acrylic medium,some microballoons and some ice sparkles here and there.

    Brian and Dimitri, thanks alot for your comments!

    I used my old humbrol polished gun metal and steel,with touches of black and burnt umber.For the magazine(i hope this is the right word) I used printer's ink for different tone.Photo doesn't show very well but it looks more used.(dimitri check your email)

    Nice job...who makes this figure?
    I especially like the underdtated weathering.
    Is it me or does the helmet look small?

    Really nice work! These S&T Rosengrant figures are a fantastic canvas to start with! You did a real stand up job. the snow is very nice as well!

    For the helmet,I think is the photo that makes it look smaller.
