    I'm wondering how to present the vignettes. Am inclined to go for a charge through the cornfield at Antietam.
    Can you get 1/35 maize....? Through-the-Cornfield-crop.jpg

    Old phone, so it's back to "turquoise trousers".
    First bit of flesh shading.
    Bootees next.

    Nice subtle shading on the trousers, will you be adding weathering at a later date?

    Thanks Malc.
    Yes there will be much more shading of everything first, then highlights all over.
    It's a slow process cos I work full-time and use enamels...

    An over-exposed photo of William Yankee showing the glacial progress of the face.
    He looks anxious.
    Time will tell.

    Slow and steady wins the race, apparently. No point in rushing and spoiling things now though I am looking forward to seeing him progress.

    Looking good, I think your slowly slowly approach is great, I'm nowhere near patient enough for that these days.

    Thanks everyone
    Work is in charge currently so I'm restricted to doing evening bits on the base under artificial light.
    More painting at the weekend, I hope.

    A very short session this morning in a freezing conservatory.
    Another tone of shading onto the face. At least one more to go...
