Pegaso 75mm Germanic Warrior

    Some time back I purchased this well casted 75mm Pegaso Germanic Warrior figure. The base coat — as you see in the first three photos — was applied with acrylic paints. Then all other painting was done with oils. I particularly like oils for leather. I can not now find the Osprey soft cover book I had on that period in Europe, but I do recall that I saw the pattern I chose for the front of his shield in that Osprey Publication. Of course, the shield was painted by hand in acrylics.
    Critical comments from you fine Ladies and Gentleman, my fellow Planeteers, are most welcome.

    Nicely done Rick (y)

    I've been eyeing this figure up for a few weeks now along with the other 75mm Germanic figure from Pegaso, especially after seeing them together in one of the Scale Model Handbooks (4 or 5 iirc). Seeing what you've done with it has only strengthened my resolve to get my grubby mitts on both of them. Many thanks for sharing :)

    It'll be nice to see your version too Ron :)

    Great work Rick.
    I too have this one. The way it all fits together is simply an engineering marvel, with the shield hiding the hole at the back perfectly. I really like how you've painted this one, with bold colours merging perfectly with earth colours. Love the groundwork and the shield pattern too. Excellent work all round my friend.

    Hello Ron; And thank you so much for taking time to
    post you kind remarks here. You know, I do remember
    this really fine Pegaso figure has been very popular. I
    think one of the reasons why I was so drawn to it is
    because most artists would "render" it painting wise,
    in the earth tones. And that is one of the reasons I was
    attracted to it. Plus, I wanted the experience of trying
    to show "wood" in a realistic manner. Thanks again, mate,

    Hello Billy: Well mate, just let 'er fly. . . We learn by doing, right?
    And if you don't like how it's going. . . well, just strip off the paint
    and start over. Years, ago, Billy, I used to get rather upset when
    I failed at a project. How silly. We learn as much from our failures
    as we learn from our successes. Just charge ahead, and know you
    have to put in the time to grow. I'm pulling for you, Bill.


    Whoa, there Jazz: So good of you to take the time to comment, my
    friend. Golly, I guess this figure is more popular than I realized. As I said
    above, the earth tones are warm and friendly and so elemental, as I see
    it, regarding the human condition. Well, John, get this figure out on your
    table and let's see what you come up with! Right? Thanks again, my
    friend, for taking time to respond. Your comments are most appreciated,

    As stated well above. Great painting and excellent colour choices. The base looks really good also.

    Oh Mr. Bowery: I admire your work so much, and it
    is so kind of you to say such encouraging words. The
    Pegaso casting is really fine. And it was a lot of fun
    to work on this project. Again, thank you for the kind
    words, John. Wishing you and yours a good week
    ahead, as we "jump" into September, 2015. Oh
    my, the time just rushes by, right?. . .. . Ha ha,
    I have to look in the mirror each day to remind
    myself that I am this old man approaching 80 yrs.
    of age. Oh boy. . . . :) Rick

    You're being very productive recently Rick!
    Really like your work on this one. It all fits together very well to make an eye-pleasing result.
    Excellent job on the shield. Hope I can still do that when I'm your age!

    Greetings, Adrian: I do so appreciate your kind word, Adrian.
    Here lately some of the projects I post were photographed some
    time ago. I'm interested in a lot of things and don't get to the
    hobby bench every day. Yes, I've been lucky to be this age. I am
    still able to enjoy the hobby so much. I think what I find most
    rewarding is the wonderful women and men I have met because
    of our shared interests. After all, as I see it, the real value and
    enrichment of life are relationships, with other people. And the
    Planeteer family here on this site, are so friendly, helpful and
    are class individuals, each one. Kind regards to you, Adrian

    Good morning, Brian: Your kind remarks are very encouraging to me, Brian.
    I realized when I put that figure into my hands for the first time, it could
    really be rewarding, if I could just pick the right shades and colours, and
    do a good job. I still have a great deal of trouble painting the iris and the catch
    light. Sometimes I have to do the eyes over several times before both eyes
    look right. I model vehicles, mostly military, Star Wars kits, and the repops
    of the old Lindberg pistol kits, (scale: 12 inches equals a foot! :cool:. So I work
    a figure from time to time into that routine. Thanks again, Brian and
    have a great week, my friend. Jayhawker

    Well done Rick. Nice subtle balance of colours and the shield looks great as does the groundwork.

    Overall a really strong figure, top to bottom.

    One to be proud of for sure.

    This is one I have not seen before from you mate , very nice . What was your technique for painting the fur ,

    Greetings, Chippy: So good of you to take a
    look at my 75mm Warrior. Chippy, most of the leather parts
    such as the back of the "cape", which was animal hide, of course
    was painted with oils. However, all the animal hair, or fur, was
    painted with acrylics. And I like to work from dark to light. The
    dark layers are painted first, making sure to get down to the lowest
    level, and then something like dry brushing with various tone after that.
    The individual strands of "fur" were painted individually with the lightest
    tone, using a Winsor Newton Kolinsky pure red sable
    (series 7) double zero brush,

    Kind regards to y0u, my friend,
