Only figures I ever paint are the 1/25th or 1/24rth scale ones and its very tricky but they make great additions to a build or diorama.

Your right Mark, they can make a huge difference.

Getting some flesh colour on, starting with pinks and reds with a small amount of sand. Will go around the eyes next to tidy them up and make final adjustments to the iris and pupil.

Looking good. You're beginning to give me the itch to do some more of my figures now.

Beautiful work on Monty! The subtleties of the skin colour really bring life to his face. Looking forward to watching this develop. popcorn

Bit more work defining and sketching in shadows and highlights with flesh tones and pink. One drop of thinner, one of glaze medium and one of colour.

Incredible work Gary. Those eyes looks so real.

I'm officially not speaking to you now.

It's freaking me out Gary, it's almost like he's there speaking to you, but with half his head missing it's like he's been assimilated into the Borg! lol

Looking good!

Can you put it beside, say a pot of Tamiya paint or a packet of fags or something to show how big it is Gary?
