    Hi Tommi!

    Nice work on this sure to be a classic bust!

    I especially like the higher contrast and bold use of colour.

    I look forward to your next piece in acrylics :)

    Hi Kaz

    I use reaper 09042 to 09048 and for a more rosy finish I use the reaper 09067 to 09069 sets. I blend in the darke areas with Citadel mix of Dwarf Flesh and Blood red and Vallejo 845 Sunny skin tone.

    Hi Pedro

    Yes I saw on on the LB busts nicely painted on here a few days ago with the ammo missing, I will be very careful.

    I have just received today the new Jeff Shiu 120mm MG gunner, pretty stunning piece, I now nearly have the complete collection of his figures to.

    Looking forward to Stuarts, Stormtroopers new MG gunner being released soon, I have already put my name down for one, looks another super piece.

    I also have the new limited edition Chris Mrsoko 200mm MG gunner coming to me in the next few weeks so will need to get the paint rollers out for this one.

    Hello Filipe

    Many thanks for the info, nice to be corrected on historical inaccuracies by people who know a lot more on the subject than I do (Me -10% knowledge):ROFLMAO:

    I will make the adjustment this week before sending out to the collector.
    Also was searching on the web for info in the shoulder boards and found it difficult to find an illustration of the boards sculpted onto the bust, lots of examples of the weave with the embedded metal insignia but all showing with the braiding being mouthed on a red back board, this is not present on the bust so am not entirely sure that this is 100% correct? I could be wrong!:confused:

    About the shoulder board, two things:

    1- Keep in mind that the "old guards" of WW2, like Guderian or von Rundstedt, sometimes had "non regulation" details on their uniforms, for different reasons; even general MacArthur, of the US Army, had a "non regulation" detail on his uniform (his cap). But this is not the case here, it´s just a "heads up"...(y)

    2- The cloth background representing the branch (red for army, light green for polizei, etc) usually was worn on the tunic uniform, like on this photo of Generaloberst Hube:


    On the greatcoats, it was unusual for general officers to use it (i do not know the specifically Heer regulation, to be honest). Like this photo here of Guderian, that probably inspired the sculptor, because of the facial expression:


    Note the shoulder board, without back board.

    Hence, it should be with gold and silver trim, with three silvered stars pipping, like this:


    I hope that i helped. If you need anything, feel free to ask. But i advise that i am better informed on the Imperial German Army than the WW2.:D

    Best regards
