    Hi friends,
    it has been a realy long time since my last figure. But when my parental duties finish in the night I paint. This is my last figure and I was painting it in late hours. It is a classic figure and lied long time in a grey army section. I am realy happy to bring this to life. Hope you will have good time watching,
    cheers. Now I can enjoy my bier :)))

    That red is gorgeous. Like the flesh too. Who makes this figure and what scale is it?

    Thanks guys,
    to CRF: a forgot to mention, it is 90mm Young Miniatures (resin version)
    to Rompy: metals are painted with printers ink, shaded with oils (van dyck´s brown). Red cape is painted intirely with acrylics (andrea red set with addition of pale yellow to the highest light shade bottle) and face is a combination of acrylics (kind of pre shading style) and oils (for better transitions).

    Beautiful paint job on a beautiful kit. I've always liked this sculpt and you've definitely done it justice. Nice job on the leather and metals. And that red cape is really vibrant. Excellent work!
