    First badge on Your picture is from "1 gardijska brigada - Tigrovi" ;)

    There will be this metal badge on the helmet:

    I remember that we got these badges for hat, but often people were putting these on the helmets.
    On the left shoulder probably will be this badge:

    We got few of this badges, and in the beginning there was no rule where to put it, so often they were put on the shoulder or pocket of the combat vest...

    My friend from modelling club started to paint it. Hair/Beard/eyebrows not finished yet, but I'm very excited seeing my first resin figure painted. Sure, paint shows so many errors that I did sculpting, but hey, this is the first one, I'll try to do better on next one:

    I think you're being too hard on yourself, it's an excellent sculpt.

    Maybe, but I still see some errors that should be fixed in the next one:

    too sharp line between hair and skin - it shoul be more blended
    too deep and unnatural lines of the beard
    some troubles around the eyes

    The hat is part that I really like-and the color makes it even more like the real thing ;)
