    Hello everybody,
    Along with the German, I've also got progress photos of the Roman cavalryman figure. It's also going to be produced by Think180 Productions and is 80mm scale.
    There are more pictures at my site...

    Pictures 15 thru 21 are the latest.

    As always, I'd appreciate any comments or constructive criticism you have for me.

    Thanks,
    Craig

    Craig,

    Your work with oils made me decide to use oils for my first figure that will be painted soon. No criticisms here.

    Vibrant colors, excellent blending: wonderfull work as always (y)

    Keep us posted...

    Hi Marvin,
    Wanted to say thanks to you for the kind words.
    I hope that you enjoy painting with oils. So many now have switched to using acrylics that i feel like a dinosaur sometimes :lol: .
    I'm looking forward to seeing your work.
    Best of luck,
    Craig

    Looks really good, Craig. Nice progress. R18 and the cape are especially nice on the deep shades.

    Only one possible suggestion for you. You may be waiting on the weathering but some random spots of burnt umber to show a bit of rust on the helmet.

    Marvin - Some of the best in the hobby use oils - David Lane, Phil Kessling and Lou Masses. Check out Lou's work bench for some big inspiration!

    I use oils too ;)

    Hi Keith,
    That's a great idea about the rust. Hadn't thought of that at all.
    Muchas gracias :) (y)
