Finished this lovely 1/10th bust t'other day. Quality of casting and packaging were as you'd expect from this manufacturer. Top quality.

All in Vallejo and Games Workshop acrylics and about 27 hours work ( ish, I always loose track about half way through a project ).

I am unhappy about the rain marks but life's too short and my grey army is too big to be ignored

Outstanding work, Mark. Leather looks awsome and the face perfectly shows this guy being on cold for few hours.
Thanks for sharing!

Great! I like the red cheeks and nose and the small details peeking out from the pouch... How did you do the bottle, looks amazing?

Hi Mark,

Another excellent piece you've made here !
The shiny nose is a brillant idea, and the face really give the ipression of cold weather.
And what about the gear man ! the bottle reflects are really really realistic, the camel pack also, everything is life like, the showel...congrats !
The rainmark could have more diluted, but as you said, you need to move on to the next figure, and the better way to learn is experience

Vivement the next piece !

That's all I need to see, another bloody fallschirmjager figure

Seriously, been following this over on MilMod - excellent work Mark, love the subtle texture details - now can you finish the rest of mine for me ?

Hi Guys,
I saw mark's bust at our last club meet & it's the dog's b*ll*cks
The rain marks are not so pronounced as per mark's blown up pictures & he's just being a perfectionist.... Stop flogging yourself Mark!
another cracking piece & we salute you
