I thought I would post the beginning picture of the Janissary pegged to work bases and primed. The nest step is the base coat for the flesh, Humbrol #121 followed by doing the flesh in tube oils. While the flesh is drying I will base coat the various parts of the clothing in the appropriate colors. I won't go into the historical aspect as Roc has done a beautiful job of providing historical background to this figure in his vbench. I don't want this to be felt as a competition as we are both using different techniques and we each have our own style and interpretation.
