Hi all. This is my very first post and attempt at painting figures. I needed a break from building and painting rust buckets and thought I'd try my hand at figs. The kit is a 200mm bust from Verlinden and depicts an Army Lt. in Vietnam.

I started with the uniform since that's is for me easy enough to do. I have always had problems painting faces so I never really finished a fig before. I used acrylics, AK effects and some oils to paint the uniform. Still more work to be done, this is as far as I got yesterday.





























A big thanks goes to my good friend Chris Spalding for his support and guidance on this venture of mine into the world of figures. More can be seen here :
