    Hi all!
    First of all, Happy New Year! I'm trying to update the latest painted figures' galleries that I couldn't post earlier with all the work to be done for H&V, Christmas, and all that stuff.
    Here we have a 120 mm bust depicting a British SAS in North Africa during WWII.
    I painted it last year and, as you may know, it is the boxart for New World Miniatures. Don't know exactly who sculpted it but I think the head itself was made by Mike Good:

    The scale is even smaller than the 140-150 mm of the H&V busts. You can make your life as difficult as you want with the details. In my versión, I added lots of painted simulated wrinkles to the white scarf to give a stronger sensation of thin clothe.
    Hope you like it.
    Regards

    Very nice mate. For a 120mm this is great painting. Nice whites and I love the material effect of the inside of the duffel coat. Superb stuff.

    Fernando,
    Great to hear you are still up and running. This looked great in Chicago. Well done on all the creases.
    Cheers
