The figure is on a early morning or evening patrol wading through a river. I painted the figure with Vallejo acrylics and used Vallejo still water effect for the water.Hope you like the end result,I had fun[IMG] painting him.You can purchase the figure from http://www.ozmods-kits.com/

    Looks great John this is a nice figure having seen yours and Mark's versions of it, it's most interesting to compare the two versions (y) The detail work in the arms and hands in particular is stunning

    Fantastic painting, John. I also love all the details - the hair, grime and cuts on his arms, the sweat-darkened band around his slouchie.The Aussie Owen submachine gun is great on this figure too.
    Brilliant job!

    John, I think you done here an amazing job. The flesh tones are very realistic and the water was only missing the sound, everything is superb.
    Congratulations!
