    Hi Guys

    Just a line to show you the final stages of my latest figure the Andrea Retreat 90mm.
    All I have to do now is do the Rifle sling, Bayonet and to dirty the figure as a final stage. I have finally got around the satin finish I was getting from some of the acrylics (thanks Roy)

    Any way have a quick look, tell me what you think :)

    Hi Dave, You are doing great with this piece, I'm glad that the acrylic treatment worked for you. I expect this figure will be all dirtied up by around wednesday then..?? Maybe I will get to see it first hand. The work you have done on the snow still knocks me out...really...it looks so wet and cold.
    I'm looking forward to seeing the campaign effects applied, that will bring it all together.

    Nice one mate (y)

    Roy.

    Thanks for sharing Dave. Your paining is very good and the groundwork is very convincing. The total effect is quite impressive.

    Very impressive and "cold" piece Dave. You've done a fine job of bringing the snow and ground work up into the figure.
