Gents,

My apologies for being missing lately but the busy days I am having at work are interfering with my spare time for the internet. Well, as I advanced past week I continued on my figure painting exercises and here you have some images of the Matilda tank crewman. The figure is one the excellent Total War Miniatures british chaps used as bust with modified ICM head and beret of my own, again painted with acrylics. By the way As Konrad requested in the Introducing-Joseph-post I will add some more remarks regarding painting flesh tones as soon as I can here later, okay?.





And here is the figure on the Matilda. I also reworked some aspects on the Matilda past week and she is basically done except for aerial and some minor final touch ups. At the moment I am working on a biscuit-size base for her and the Stalin I hope to finish on time for the deadline next week hopefully.



Thanks for looking.
Lu

Hello Lu: your figures always look very "smooth" compared to the Tamiya kit figures. Lots of aspects of both the Matilda and the figure to contemplate. Cheers, Ralph.

He looks just great, can't wait to see your comments on the painting process. Queen Matilda is looking very regal now that she has her king Tommy on the throne . The Black Knight is nearly ready as well, will post some pix soon as I can.

best,

Konrad

That nice figure really makes the difference, the human factor! Face is nicely painted, like it!
