    Hi,

    Along some time I've been working on this figure. Since last post I've made some progress: Colpack braid, straps, some gear... I miss the almost all metallics, axe, fix the rifle and the ground... Also I believe that I have to work the straps a little more... add lights and shadows here and there. But it's getting near the end.

    Pedro nobody's looking at the title......what everyone is looking at is the superb work you're doing on this figure.
    Sappers are always real eyecatchers and this one is really becoming a stand out example XenForoThumbsup_zpsb717ef9c.gif

    Thank You Derek, your too kind ;) And I agree, this one is really a great figure, it's a shame that so few are seen... It is unusually big for a 75mm figure,
    has lot's of gear, and it has character... the look on his face has much personality...

    Regards
    Pedro

    Hi Pedro, this promises to be another brilliantly painted figure.
    I like how you've painted the dirty whites, his face and beard. Seeing figures like this is converting me slowly into a 'Nappy' ;)

    This big guy is coming along beautifully, Pedro. I am very impressed with your work here... to my eyes, probably your best work so far.

    Dig in and finish him off... can't wait!!

    Great work as usual Pedro.
    I find that painting the body is fairly quick, but when it comes to accoutrements and guns and other small pieces it takes a great deal of time.
    Best regards and keep up the good work!

    For a newer figure painter, so many whites is a nightmare. Love what you did with all the whites on this figure. Nice one. :wideyed:
