    Approaching the finish line with the Janissary I have painted the head feather and the arms and attached. I am now working on the bow, quiver and arrows and will do the groundwork this afternoon.

    all comments welcome

    I have done the basic groundwork deciding to leave the Janissary on the kit rock and add to this. I have taken an assortment of different size stones and added small sand in the end step. This will dry and be painted.

    That ground work looks like it's going to really look good!

    i'm interested to see how you paint the large rock..always a point of trouble for me...

    Thanks for the vote of confidence Alex. The rock will be quite simple as you will see. Base coat the rock in dark gray.....give it a black wash along with the earth colored ground and then drybrush with light gray...then drybrush again with white. I will take pics of how I do the groundwork. Quite simple really.

    Hihihi, hey Rocco, are you feeling the pessure, whose Jenissary is gonna look the best... ;) Well seriously, I'm not going to wage any money on that. Guy and Rocco are both ecxellent painters and I am, for all intensive purposes, an admirer. So there... Guy, I am taking notes and salivating. And I certainly do not want to be a pain, but I still think you need a new digital camera. Needless to say, I have a feeling you already know that. But hey, no offense, I'm just saying that, y'know? :) I sugest this baby:http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/konicaminoltaz2/

    Yeah, I know, thats the one I purchased. So perhaps I'm biased. Yet, it's relatively cheap, considering what you can do with it. And by the same token, we could now enjoy the true value of your work. ;) That is, until we can finally meet, (perhaps one day). And then, I can admire with my own eyes what you do. (Perhaps Boston).

    Alright, enough chatter.Looking forward to the completed project...

    Regards,
    Francis
