Last painting job over this nice bust from Young ...hope you like it
Nice work on the metal
Nice work my friend.
Absolutely stunning work Francis.
Gonna look in Antwerp very close.
Geez, the Spartans are hot at the moment on this site. Another fine example of these warriors of the past. Love your metal work.
Excellent paintjob, Francis! Very nice metals!
Nice job Francis.
On the colour of the cape though, similar comment to those I made to Hardy here - you've done it orange, should be a deep red or crimson more than likely.
Excellent paintwork, Francis.
C'est superbe ... ainsi que la production ... o)
...It's a beatiful work!!
Great figure, superb metal work
Thank you all for your compliment, much apreciated.
Einion the red is :
military green (Andrea)+ carmin red +dot of black
1st ligth bermellion,2nd scarlet,3th orange red
dark base + back
all color from Model color
Don't let Einion wreck your fun - he never likes any colours!
I like colour just fine, it's only where I see a problem with their use in a particular context that I feel the need to comment on it specifically
As I said in the other thread, the info we have to go on for the Spartans gives the colour repeatedly as red, most specifically as crimson. So unless there's sound reasoning behind the choice painting it orange is, well, wrong. Particularly so when it's just an unintended artefact of mixing/painting method, which we've all had happen to us.
