    Not at all, I like the more natural look, not mad on the forced highs and lows.
    But that's just me,

    Ditto. I'm of the opinion that contrasts can become too extreme, especially on the larger scale figures, which makes them rather cartoonish in appearance.

    Dude, very impressive work. Incredibly smooth, those transitions are so well-done. And that face kicks ass ;)

    This is a great looking piece and you are doing him justice David. I have recently "rediscovered" my interest and passion for Imperial German subjects and this figure will be a nice addition to my collection. Thanks for sharing.

    Carl, I used acrylics and Humbrols. I was wondering about using some of the weathering 'grease' and or 'wet' substances I've sometimes seen mentioned on the armour on here. Have you used it??:whistle:

    Not to me.

    I'm also not a fan of the pronounced or exaggerated highlighting and shadowing that's so much in vogue the last few years but this is a softly-sculpted piece anyway, hard-edged shading would be inappropriate (wouldn't match what's actually there).

    Nicely finished, and I love the weathering and the stains/dirt on this guy. Top-notch piece sir.
