    Hello Guys
    This is the second release for Euro Militaire from YS Masterpieces in superb resin casting

    Former I&E kit of 75mm Samurai Ashigaru Commander sculpted by the master Alan Ball

    [IMG]

    It was really a enjoying kit to paint, as the assembly is a toy, due to perfection of sculpting and casting . The amount of detail is high as you can see, and it can end as a really impressive kit .

    Painted in acrylics and oils , i just hope you like it , and you will decide to paint it !

    Costas , great painting and excellent colour choice, my only question and it's not a critism is, should the armour not be shiny/ laquered as is the top of the helmet?.
    Many thanks for showing .

    Cheers Ken

    Ken hi and thanks for posting . Tha armor is a bit shiny but somehow the shooting light killed it . But is not glossy by my choice , as i have seen armors in museums that are totally flat , and i prefered to go the less shiny way

    Costas,
    Congratulations. You have overdone yourself with this one. In my humble opinion it is your best. The transitions between the shades, higlights and base colors are smoother then your usealy work.
    The colors are so vibrant that the figure seems to shine.
    At last it's great.
