hi Tom nice work on the figure. i am in the process of getting the same figure ready for priming myself. lots of seam/moulding lines to get rid of first.nice work with the face as the flesh areas will be my nemesis. last 2 1/16 figures i done i camoed up the face and made a balaclava for the other to avoid doing a bad job on the face.

lol Steven thats one way to hide a bade paint job :D

Jay, if you like figures the best advice i can give is get Painting a 1/35 Scale Figure with Acrylic Colours you can get it on Historex for £11.50 the process covers all scales not just 35th scale. i was like you wanting to improve my figure painting this helped and my stuff looks better because of it.

As for your figure the one thing that stands out is the splinter on the camo is too thick. I done it on this guy its not perfect but the ide is to not be heavy with the brush not an easy job :) viewtopic.php?f=48&t=2078

Thanks Spud, maybe i would have been better putting on thin layers, i used Tamiya mixed as i didn't have the vallejo for the base, but it definitely looks off, thanks for the feed back, maybe next time all white for a winter camo :lol: but i would like to refine my figure painting, seen some fabulous work done by the guys here, i have the painting guide for world war two figures and Amazon sent me two, so if anyone needs one let me know

Almost missed this for some reason. Figure painting is without doubt the most difficult aspect of the hobby and the larger the scale the harder it gets. Hats off to those who attempt it and when it's done well there is nothing to beat it. :DX
