    Hi ladies and gentlemen. after the marcomanic i wanted to switch century and style, so i picked of the dust my Spanish Conquistador . A figure sculpted 18 years earlier but still a beayty to me .

    I kicked off doing 70% off the face and started also the metals on helmet and armor cuirass.

    The pictures are 4 days old, and i have progressed more but didnt had time to shoot more.

    In coming days you will have the total picture. and i still havent done a base for it .

    Actually i made one, but i thought it dint suit well so i will make another

    All comments welcome

    Nice job so far, Costas!

    If the rest will be like the skintones and your armor, it will sure turn out to be a real beauty. I will watch this till the end.

    Keep them posting, your on the right track!!

    That's an excellent start Costas. I believe that your best flesh tones and also the metals really rock. Keep up this way and you will have a master piece in your hands soon..

    This is indeed a vintage figure, I remember doing this for a collector, wish I still had it.


    Nice work so far, looking forward to seeing more.

    Cheers

    I like the face, very good start with a sunburnt look. Is the metal polished and then painted, or just painted? The colour looks very realistic.

    Hey Costas,

    You have a nice start. I have to admit I still really like this kit. I have also picked up the Jute twine for you and and few other things. Will get them out in the mail to you in the next day or so.

    Looks pretty good to me Costas. Nice looking metals but the flesh is even nicer. Looking forward to more from you.

    Sorry to forget ...

    Metal WORK WAS LIKE THAT :

    I dont prime metal surfaces.

    I undercoat with Modelmasters Metalizer titanium color i then make the metal shining by rubbing it .

    Then i use mixes like washes that are made from silver printers ink mixed with Black , and Cassel earth oil colors highly dilluted with tarpentine.

    I make the areas of light and shadow adjusting the toneof the color adding more or less oil color .

    Then for high highlights i apply some almost solid silver ink and downgrade it with light washes of burnt umber . In darkest shadows i apply solid cassel earth color thined .

    thats it

    I hope i helped
