Folks, here's our Roman Cavalry friend from the Bust Painting Workshop where we had our final session a few weeks back.

For those interested, colours used are Vallejo (VMC) and Citadel (CTDL). The basic colour mix follows:

- Inner shirt & sash is VMC pale blue highlighted with off white & shadowed with black.

- Cape & top knot is VMC red highlighted with sunny skin tone & shadowed with german camo brown ( add black for deepest shadow). Top knot has a little more brown for a slightly darker shade.

- Armor is CTDL mix of chainmail, boltgunmetal, mithril silver. Mithril silver for highlight and black for shadows.

- Gold is CTDL shining gold highlighted with shining gold (+mithril silver) and shadowed with scorched earth (add black for deepest shadow).

- Leather is VMC leather brown highlighted with orange brown and shadowed with black. Final glaze with burnt cadmium maroon.

Thks to HHQ for the w/shop venue and bringing in these gems. Also thks to co-partner B'Loo leader for sharing with us his knowledge & techniques.

Hope you enjoy and remember to keep practising.

Q, C&C welcome.

Stunning paintworks! At first glance thought it was painted in oil. Great skills on tone blending and really looks smooth! Great one.....

Tnx guys.

Euro M? Still lagging by some 2-3yrs, I think ^_^

Entau, already from cars to planes, why not figures for the next step? :D

Our friend is 1/10 scale. Didn't really measure but he should be about 105mm from top to dagger tip and about 75mm wide. Throw in another 20mm for rest of the stand. Hefty chunk of resin, beautifully sculpted and chock full of detail. Worth *every* cent, IMO.

Its all hand painted. Only primer was airbrushed at the initial stage.

Cheers

Pooh
I'm totally bowled over. Nothing to nitpick but only pluses - the eyes, cape and everything...very chun. Must be one heckuva workshop although I'd tend to put it all down to the individual's own desire to improve. Collectors will pay handsomely for this. You are up there among the international commission painters. Way to go pro!

Merry Christmas and A Hapy New Year
Patrick
