    Hi guys,

    I'm calling this figure finished. It's been a pleasure to build and paint this figure from Alpine. The sculpting and casting was perfect and it went together so easily.

    Painting the duck hunter camo was a challenge but I think my patience and persistence was rewarded. The final step was to apply some oil washes to the skin and some pastels chalk dust around the cuffs of the trousers and the knees.

    I hope you like him. Thanks to everyone who posted comments on the WIP thread.

    Awesome work mate.
    The groundwork looks great.
    Camo is excellent and I like the fact that the turned up cuffs are painted in a lighter shade, Great attention to detail.
    Also the weathering is just superb.
    Great stuff!
