120mm figure by Maurice Corry. I hope I've done it justice - the camera lens is our harshest critic at more than life size!! From a couple of feet away it looks fine. Flesh painted in oils, everything else in acrylics.







This is also my entry for the Sniper campaign.

Vallejo acrylics - I think it was sand and medium flesh with a darker wash to shadow it and bring out detail.

Nice figure. I'm going to have a go at this one in mtp. I know what you mean about the camera - things always look better in the flesh.
