    Nice figure Daniel.
    The flag looks as though it will test your new flag making skills.
    Good luck Mate.

    Thanks Keith and Huw.
    I have still yet to buy the cooper sheet and cut it and shape it.
    For now i will concentrate on the figure, and leave the "good stuff" for later :)

    Living where I do, it would be bad form to use anything other than the foil from a Champaign bottle Daniel.:whistle:

    Hhaaha..i bet you have quite a collection my friend.
    I have been taking all of the foils from every bottle of Argentine Malbec we drink, i am starting to make a collection my self but not big enough to make the flag, but very useful for other stuff.

    Hi Daniel,
    I will try some Malbec if I ever get to painting some 15mm flag bearing figures.

    I decided to do something different on the pants and vest this time, rather than my usual deck tan and stone grey, i am going slightly to the colder whites.
    So i am using a mix of vallejo panzer Aces white german tanker and a dab of neutral grey.

    It looks really good Daniel.
    It's a very brave thing to do when you move away from a proven mix of paint that works so well as yours did.
    Well done.
    Cheers,

    Thanks Keith, the fact that the coat is a different color than white makes that choice a little easier.

    I have cut it and sanded a little since the lead sheet is a little thick but it will work great.
