    After all the great comments there where a few I have to do.
    The chevrons and the five o'clock shadow.
    Maybe i'm going to far with the chevrons, but i can always put it off, or repaint it.
    At least the color isn't white anymore, and the chevrons looks like they should be. Reworked them several times because i saw later that two chevrons where different than the opposit site. Then the lines where to thick, then there where to many. All in all, i'm satisfied, and hope you are to.
    Well here are the pictures.

    Marc, the face is WAY better now! Smooth transitions, the 5 O'clock shadow is toned down and smooth, the chevrons show some deth. Well done, and my hat is off to you my friend for taking the suggestions here to heart and actually improving your piece by pushing yourself just that touch farther! Well done!

    Great stuff

    That looks much better Marc.
    The chevrons look very good. I like that youve put the weave in also.
    Very nice.
    Can I ask why you don't use acrylics?

    Thanks Jay.
    Sometime is a more profession eye better then your own. One of the reason man/women should show there figures on the Planet. When some comment is made, you should push yourself again to that finished figure.
    Because ITis not finished. The comments are the cherry on the cake.
    Thanks for the comment aout the face.

    Grant,
    Thanks for commenting. I don't use acrylic because i can get the hang on it. I started with acrylic, but all my figures look awefull.
    Then i paint a figure with oils and in my club they advise me to stay at the oil. The blending is going much easyer then the layering with the acrylic.

    Thanks Marc -- my pleasure, just in contradiction of the Oils vs Acrylics values, your club members are not wrong but a different aspect from my own experience
    is that since I have been using acrylics almost exclusively, I have learnt to use the glazes and thinned out washes better and more often, I was traditionally mostly oils,but I find that the acrylics has taught me to pay more attention to specific details in each colour, shading and highlighting mid tones and so on, I experiment much more and am enjoying it better, I am letting the brush do the work instead of more constant blending with oils. I'm also more happier with the flesh tone results, I think thinned down acrylics with a milky consistancy is working very well for me. Just a thought !;)

    Rob,
    thanks again for all your advice. I must admit that now and then i try again with acrylic. At the Magister Militum is all the red and blue done with acrylic. So at small parts i try. Maybe someday i get the hang with them, but for now i love the smell of oilpaint in the evening.

    Much Better Marc.
    A jacket is wonderful in particular.
    I think a work transformed itself into the smooth finish overall.
    Thank you for showing me a wonderful work.
