    Very nice job. Have you seen Jon Smiths figures and trench sets from WWI they are some of the best I've seen and the detailing is amazing.

    Smudger I have been in Jons house and have seen first hand how he produces his figures and equipment, I could spend hours there.

    Following on from the last posting of the completed stormtrooper I have now made a start on the 2nd bust of the british trench raider.

    I had a few hours peace and quiet today to make a start on this,i always start with the face and headgear and once completed I then move to the rest of the bust and work my way down it.

    The flesh was all done in oils with mixes of Burnt Sienna / Tittanium White / Burnt Umber / Naples Yellow / Veneitian Red / Sepia,these were finished over a GW acrylic flesh basecoat.

    The helmet cover was done with exactly the same process.

    The pupils and eye details I will finish on the next sitting.

    Weathering was done using umber and raw sienna mixes.
