Hi
I find Hornet's bare heads ( in this case the type without hairstyles ) to be very useful especially with helmets. If you're on a budget one set goes a long way. Here's one I used on Dragon's Marine. Attaching it on an opened collar or bare chest requires more work than a buttoned or closed collar. Putty was used to patch up the joint.

Here's the figure posed with the others also upgraded with bare heads.

Hi Patrick,
Really like the look a lot, was wondering what method you used for the stubble of the face and the marine hair cut? Great stuff, thanks for posting.
Regards
Sven

Your figure work is simply amazing! Care to share any painting techniques? What do you paint in, acrylics or oils?
Again, stunning work!

Stunning work. If you have a cd or webpage on how you do your work, I'll buy it.

Oils and acrylics where I feel it's necessary or more convenient. Thanks Rod. Feel free to message me.

Thanks Sven. Oils is best for this. A more detailed 'how to' for 5 o'clock shadow and stubble is in Military Modelcraft International (UK) Dec 2009.

Thanks Paul. I'm just 'small time'. No CD or book. LOL! I do contribute articles to Military Modelcraft International when I can find the time though.

Cheers
