    What scale is it ?

    I think this is a very nice job. I however think that for the next time you can smooth a bit the shadows on the face. It is also a question of taste but I find they are too strong. Keep up the good work !

    Hi Laurent, Thanks for looking. The figure is a 120MM. This is the largest figure I've ever painted. It soaks up up the paint for sure.

    Might just be me and a lack of sleep and coffee but he's got a kinda John Wayne look about his face... :)

    Hi Gordon and Steve, Thanks for taking a look.

    Rudi, I also thought it looked like John Wayne after my wife pointed it out.

    I made a little progress this weekend between three soccer games and mt daughters birthday party. Here's an updated photo. Still pretty rough but you get the idea. All comments welcome. View attachment 94378 View attachment 94378

    Updated pictures. Top half of the figure is close to done. I have a lot of little clean up to do. Getting ready to move to the trousers.
