    Hello Planeteers,

    My latest, a Warriors 54mm figure, entirely painted with acrylics.

    Very nice indeed, Erik! I like the richness of the scarlet you’ve chosen for his tunic, & the inclusion of the Martini-Henry ammunition box which was the source of controversy during the actions at Isandlwana & Rorke’s Drift is a great touch.
    Nice wooden base too.

    I haven't seen this one before, smashing pose and I like the faded look you have achieved to the knees, excellent!

    Hi Erik,
    Nice job really like the overall look. You might want to detach the bayonet and put it on the correct side of the Martini.;)
    cheers

    Hi Erik,
    It's worth doing as it's a nice piece. I would be proud to have that in my cabinet.

    Very nice! I ordered this figure a few weeks ago. Did you add the bayonet? I didn't see one in the kit.

    Thanks guys!

    @Chazman: Yes, bayonet was made from streched sprue, added on a small ring on the rifle barrel. Also made a new water bottle, because mine wasn't supplied/lost… And to be fair (;)) added a new Hornet head (with Green Stuff moustache!) with the original helmet, which I trimmed a bit in size around the rim...

    Cheers

    Thanks! What was your color mix for the "Red Coat"?

    @Chazman;
    Had a hard time doing the reds to my liking, painted it a second time over...:grumpy:
    Started with Vallejo Dark Red, getting more and more Vermillion on the highlights, making several washes with this color to unifie the shadows and highlights. Adding more Lime Green to the highlights (will become a lighter red/orange...) and ending by adding Basic Flesh for the extreme highlights. Inbetween and back and forth adding a wash with pure Vermillion. Extreme shadows where made by Black Red again mixed with German Camo Black Brown.
    Was satisfied with this approach!

    Good luck in trying (y)

    Cheers
