    Stalingrad Bust made by Stormtroopers and originally painted by Gothic Geek. I picked this up at Euro Militaire 2010.
    I hope I have done an ok rendition as this is my first post and would really appreciate anyone’s comments and feedback.
    This bust is painted solely in acrylic. P.S. I hope this post works as I completely hate computers! :eek: Stalingrad Bust 5.jpg

    Very nice Sam. I particularly like the frozen 'tache & eyebrows, & the colouring you've used for the highlights on the nose - it really does look like the early symptoms of frostbite.
    Keep it up, & let's see more of your work soon!

    Cheers,
    Chris(y)

    Sam, that's more than just an o.k rendition, great work on the facial tones and the frozen snow effect is spot-on. Congrats.

    Very nice

    I love the weathered look of figures especially Russian Front ones. The flesh tones and snow effects are spot on. very well painted overall.

    Great debut Sam, I like the sores around the nose, he doesn't look happy.
    Keep 'em coming,

    I almost thought someone uploaded the box art pictures again. That's how good it is, Sam!

    I am obsessed with pinky flesh so brilliantly painted nose there, among other things :)

    Very cool Sam, (no pun intended) the snow is nicely understated and really adds the 'shiver' feel. Cheers, Ron

    Marble dust!

    Sam....patent that!

    Put it in a bag and sell the stuff!

    (Just don't get caught by the old bill selling a white powder called 'marble dust'.....that'll land you a ten year stretch!)

    Cheers,
    Jon.
