Arxo, you've done awesome work with skintones and leathers. I also love how you've painted the chainmail keepign every detail of what's under the metal rings visible.

Congratulations! Great piece!

Thank you Andrzej, glad you liked it. I 've made some corrections and deepened the shadows in the chainmail, painted a 'cut' between the chainmail and the clothes and deepened the shadows in the red part of the cloth with some extra light. Hope to take some pictures and if I do, I will post them.

Well I finally got around to starting my bust. It is MIG Productions 1/9 Celtic Chief. I built it last week and got a good weekends painting done. I took some images before painting (with a new camera) but they leave a bit to be desired. More images soon of the in progress painting.



Some further details can be found in my blog

Well apart from a few bits of touching up here and there I am going to call this one done.












I really hope there is a second campaign, I bought 3 more at Euromillitaire and I have another on order.

Howdy,
I've come to the conclusion that I've over-extended myself for campaigns I've signed up for. With regrets I have un-enlisted
You guys do great work, I'm not even in the same class. I'll enjoy watching the builds and good luck. Keep it up.
Thanks,
Don "Lakota"

Paul, I really like this piece. I has very nice touche of macabre without any gore on it

Second bust painting campaing? Well... I'm convinced

Don, sorry to hear that. I hope to see you around for some other campaings!

Hereby I deliver.

I could not login to the Photobucket account so I hope this is ok?

Heres my latest work. I have not been painting in a while and it shows. It is however my intention to paint more often to perform better.

This is the MIG 1/9 scale bust of a Confederate bugler. I have not done much on it, merely carved away the insignia, a digit, on the cap. Due to loosing the cord to decorate the horn, I made a new one with tazzels from cupperwire wich I braided. The internet is a good source to learn how to make different type of braids.








Basecolours have been added but no shading or highlighting yet. I use mostly Humbrols but also Printers Ink for some metallic effects and some artist oils as well as Vallejo Acrylic varnish. The hand with the trumpet is attached when bust is almost finished.




And heres the ready piece. I always find it difficult to paint brass. And the trumpet I had to repaint several times, and as time was running out it hasnt got the smooth finnish I was striving for. This was however my first paint job in a long time so I will have to learn from this and practice more.










Thanks for looking.
Cheers
