    Just finished painting this early release by Elite Miniaturas, sculpted by Raul Garcia Latorre. I swapped the head for one by Hornet - I sculpted the hair. Hope you like it!

    Lovely job. Never seen this one before. I'm guessing that like a lot of the Elite 54mm range, it really is "54mm going on 1/35" (hence the Hornet head).

    Thanks a lot Steve. It is quite a small 54mm figure - the Hornet head is 1/32.

    Nice work, Edward - the subtle tonal variations in the different shades of olive green look great, & the addition of the Hornet head gives a lot of animation to the figure.

    Nice work Edward, on a figure I'm not familiar with. Those OG fatigues are a bugger to get right colourwise. You've hit 'em spot on. The Hornet head makes it for me.

    Hi Edward

    As always great to see your painting

    Very distinctive and very fresh looking painting

    Nice work on the hair

    Why not think about putting a piece into the class of your choice in the new FOTM

    Thanks for sharing

    Look forward to the next

    Happy benchtime
