    Well, here goes. A 1/8th scale but of an Org or troll.


    Another shot with hand in pix to help with scale.


    Well, I think it works. Rather easy actually.

    Oooooops! Fire the proofreader

    Ah . . . hmmmmm. . . I believe that was supposed to say "Bust" in the post
    above and not but. The "s" got left off. So much for a newpaper background.
    Groan. . . :rolleyes:

    Thank you for responding, gentlemen. . .

    hello Dave and Marc:

    It was kind of you to respond to this newbee member. Yes, I really thought
    that Roy Hunt was so talented — an amazing sculptor with a super
    imagination. I was just so shocked and saddened to learn of his untimely
    death. Wow, it sure points up that we need to enjoy each day we're given.

    thanks again,

    Thanks for taking a look see, gentlemen. . .

    Hey there, Pedro near Lisbon. Wow, would love to visit your country! Thanks
    for taking time to comments Pedro, on my little monster with the orange
    hair. He won a first place award in the Fantasy category at the IPMS/USA
    Nationals in Los Angeles, 07.

    And to Jay in Ohio, thank you as well. Are you a Buckeye fan? I'm definitely
    into college sports. Wow, your Boss? He must have bad hair days (daze?) as
    well. Whoa, Nellie. . . :rolleyes::rolleyes::p

    Hi Dave. . . ha ha ha haaaa


    Aw Dave, good to hear from you, fella. But I don't think ahma' gonna tell
    Spanky what you said, podna. Very funny though.

    Gave me a big laugh this morning, . . . and got the endorphines coursing
    through ma' bod - deeeeeee. Big time.

    Take care, Dave,


    Hopefully I'll see you again at the IPMS Nats when they come to Omaha. I'll
    only be 74. Hopefully, I will still have a driver's license. :confused:
    I've been told that growing old ain't fer sissies. Whoa, I agree. . .

    Hi Rick,

    Excellent painting. The green skin is very effective.
  12. kansas kid Well-Known Member

    Thank you, Tony

    Hi Tony:

    Thanks for taking time to look and then respond. I admire your work here
    on the PF forums a great deal. So your positive comments are indeed

    As a retire artist, I find the fantasy genré gives the painter cate blanche as
    to what colors to pick. And I really let my imagination run free on this lovely
    piece of sculpture from the late Roy Hunt. Later I hope to post images of
    a War of the Zodiac bust from Yedhero (sp?) miniatures. Fausto is a very
    talented sculptor. So much creative talent in the Iberian Peninsula, not only
    historically, but in the present as well.

    I still enjoy doing historical subject matter, in fact, I started building models
    years ago doing Supermarine Spitfires, still my favorite aircraft.

    Thanks again, for responding,

    Rick so glad to see you on here mate and really good to see the Ork again, if i can see let alone paint that well when im in my 70`s i will be a happy chappy.

    Hopefully everyone on here will get to know you like i have over the last couple of years, Ricks a true Gent.

    catch you later old heimer,

  16. kansas kid Well-Known Member

    Thank you gentlemen three. . .

    To Pedro: Oh my wouldn't that be great to visit such a beautiful place as
    your home country right on the Atlantic Ocean. I'm landbound in Heartland
    America, and it is lovely too. But we do not have the Ocean or the shore. It
    would be great to travel there. But as you know, so much about life is about
    money, plus I'm rather old to be traveling those kinds of distances. Good
    of you to write, once again, Pedro. And thanks for the kind words.

    To David: Thank you, for taking the time for a look see. And you're right.
    Once I decided to paint the skin tones light lime green with hints of melon
    red and yellow, it became a great deal of fun to paint. Thanks again.

    To Steve-vo: Hey there mate, it was so good of you to chime in here. I hope
    to post some of the other pieces as time permits in the future. Perhaps that
    old free standing Verlinden 120mm figure of the WWII US Navy pilot in the
    South Pacific. I am nearing the finish line on that figure. Still fighting the
    facial tone, however. But at least I got the Wehrmacht Cossack and this
    pilot figure all completed without using the oils over the acrylics. Thanks
    again, mate.
