    Hi Guy.

    I watch this sbs very interested because I want to paint these two figures in future. And I have learned much until now.

    Thanks Ulrich. This has been an enjoyable figure to work on. I chose him to do first since he didn't have any of the intricate designs and consisted of red leather armor.

    Thanks Rocky,

    Haven't been able to make much progress this week. Too much "home" stuff going on. I hope to make some progress over the weekend.

    After doing the armor on the legs the next step is to blend and shade the pants. I use weathered black as my dark shading color and Khaki as the light shade color carefully blending the line where they meet. The black gives me a great degree of depth.

    After the blending and shading has dried I again use the dry-brushing technique to add the highlights to the top of the folds by adding a drop or two of white to each dry-brushing. There was a total of 3 dry-brushings to the pants with each time adding another drop or two of white to lighten each dry-brush. You'll see the end result later in the sbs.

    Above you see the armor plates attached to old paint brush handles and have been painted. The bottom photo shows the back side of the armor with a touch of black where the paint brush stick was attached.

    Above you see the progress made of the head with more detail to be brought out in the head. The long hair for the back as well as the tails of the head wrap are finished and await to be attached.

    The armor plates are epoxyed to the waist of the figure starting with the front right and left knee pads and adding the additional armor sections all the way around the figure.

    More to come
    all comments welcomed.

    One of the things the collector and I are discussing by phone now is the selection of the base. We have 2 to choose from. Both oriental style with the main difference being the height.

    Conventional Oriental Black ebony base about 2" high

    ebony 1.jpg ebony 2.jpg

    A dark mahogony colored Oriental styled base about 8" tall

    We lean toward the shorter black lacquered ebony base because the taller base would overpower the figures being almost twice the figure height. What do you think?

    I Prefer the second ....... but I think that the First Models it more indicated ;)

    Guy,the new work on this figure looks great.
    Both of the bases are beautiful pieces but I agree
    that the larger one would overpower the figures.
    The taller base might suit a 120mm figure with a
    detailed scenic support.The next commission maybe.

    Hi Guy,

    Chimming in a bit late.. I like the shorter one.
    Both are beautiful bases. Assume you got the bases
    at just an oriental shop... they sort of look familiar... I need
    to be on the look out for something like that when I head
    back home to L.A.
