Just the briefest of updates on this modelling aside. I had hoped, sadly in vain, that he would be completed for an Armistice Day post but as you can see I am nowhere near ready.
I have to admit that I'm really struggling with this project. The sculpt is wonderful but the painting technique required is really frustrating me. What one can get away with at 28mm is not viable at this larger scale. Blending is obviously the way to go but it is such a time consuming process, constantly going back and forth. I will obviously keep going and with a bit of luck will get something that looks half way decent!
The face is looking good so far, don't let it frustrate you too much.ReplyDelete
You have got the face spot on old chap, god luck with the rest of the projectReplyDelete
The face is looking very impressive. It's full of life, and determination. Carry on.....it's definately going to be worth it, and be a very, very fine tribute, Michael.ReplyDelete
