    Nice work Mark. These Stormtroopers figures are very well animated. I'm keen to see what you do with this one.

    I love stormtroopers figures, I wish theyd bring back out the older out of production ones from Stalingrad.

    That figure however looks fantastic ! :)

    Started painting the face and used an airbrush to lay down the basic colours, worked like a charm :)

    Now going over that and adding a bit more definition and tightening it all up

    Carl ... Thanks! And it is! I'm using a PremierG35 with a Mac Valve and a Cheapo Hymer Diaphram Compressor.... Still tend to get paint all over but I gotta admit It helps a lot :)

    Stu .... Cheers :)

    Pedro ... Thank you !! :)


    Working on the flesh areas still. Added a fair bit of red to cheeks and nose and more blues round the jaw and in the eye sockets, Increased the contrast somewhat too.

    It's probably the photos, but there doesn't appear to be a lot of contrast on the coat.

    Looks nice and smooth Mark!

    What can you do to bring some colour in next to the whites? Did the uniform exist with rabbit fur maybe?
    But maybe you have something else in mind already.... ?

    Cheers,
    Adrian
