    Hi guys

    Here are the latest WIP pics of Legolas.

    Undercoated in Vallejo acrylics and painted in oils.

    I filed off the decorative swirly pattern on the quiver, and tried to paint the elaborate Peacock design embossed in the leather:eek: . Its not finished yet, but you should get some idea from these pics where I'm trying to go with this.

    The bow string is one of the hairs from my wife's head.:D :D

    The base is covered in crushed and dried parsley leaves pressed into the ground putty mixture.

    More pics to follow soon.

    Hi Tony,

    looks great, I like the different green tones, the base is nice too! Let me have one little critique: the arrows look bent and it might would pay off to change them, they look a little bulky.

    Looks very good Tony. Denes is right you have to fix the arrows, and the gold paint on the arrowcase doesn't look so neath.

    Beautiful work Tony. I traded off this figure for a couple of Almond figures. Now I wish I had kept it after seeing yours.

    Denes, Marcel - yes you're both right. The arrows do look a little chunky and a bit warped. I'll have a go at replacing them with some thin metal rods and glue the arrowe tails back on.

    Guy - thanks for your comment.
