    Hello my friends.
    I will call this figure finished, if you have no comments on it. I know it could always be better, but after two months of painting I think he is done.
    The casting was great, but fitting was a pain in the #$#%. Specially the right arm and wrist didn't fit in no way.
    Well my pictures are as usual not as it should be, but this is the best I could get.
    Let me here what you think.

    Good stuff there Marc.
    Yes, the fit as you described was a bit of a pig. Thing is, i found you have to do this in sub-assemblies as otherwise you can't reach what's behind the arms. The shield is well rendered as well mate. I found the face wasn't the most enjoyavble to do either, and I had to strip mine once. The is an odd figure though, as the face isn't the focal point. Nice groundwork Marc as well, better than mine.
    Well done.

    Indeed seems like a tricky figure to paint, with all the covered areas. It looks good Marc!

    Thanks Adrian.
    You have to paint everything before glueing the arm's.
    I knew they not fit properly, but couldn't manage them before everything whas painted.
    Then with some putty I fixed the problems.

    Hoi Marc. Inderdaad moeilijk te beoordelen. Verdiend zeker een plekje in het cabinet.

    I agree. Only one thing Marc, maybe you can improve a little the letters of the pennant?
