Ok, first cab off the rank I guess (getting in before that Dragon arrives!!! lol). This is Fritz the Panzer Grenadier. He's got a size issue hence the despondent look on his face. lol

I painted him, in the main, with Tamiya acrylics, the uniform is XF-65 Field Grey (which is green) on a base of XF-27 Black Green which has all but disappeared (I'll work on that in future). I used Vallego's 342 Highlight Flesh mixed with XF-65 to try and get a nice highlight tone, it kinda worked in places.

Skin tones are a mix of three paints from Vallego's Panzer Ace No.6 pack, and they are listed in the build thread. Excellent paints. The accessories I used XF-67 NATO Green for the grenades. Anything leather was painted with Vallego 347 Splinter Blotches II, I think it's an excellent colour for leather. Then a bit of everything for the rest. The metal parts are a layer of X-10 Gunmetal with XF-1 Flat Black, or vice versa. The Gunmetal was also used to dry brush the wear and tear bits.

I finished him off with a brown pastel powder wash and clean up with a cotton bud.

Here he is:









The scary shot, I am using a 1:2 Macro lens on my Pentax K10D digital SLR, so it's going to pick up EVERYTHING!! Haha his face:

Thanks for the opportunity to have a go at miniature painting. Something I've never done before. The help and support you guys shell out is invaluable. As I said in the build thread I will have no fear of painting miniature figures for models in the future. Cheers. [smile]


Oh damn! I just remembered I did scratch build a nice rifle strap early on, and lost it when I had a minor X20a spill all over my bench (things kinda went flying) and I had intended to either find it (impossible, it was tiny), or make another one. One day. lol

Nice work Simon. Not to much not to little. Like the scratch a chipping effect on the helmet. Nice precise work on the gun as well. Looks good mate very good.

Thanks Simon, yes I was very pleased with my little gunmetal chipping find, a bit less subtle than silver which I had been using. It will be my chipping paint of choice from now on. lol Good luck with that Dragon, That's an awesome piece of kit that, pun indended. lol

He did turn out really nice Simon, lovely neat work on the details and the weathering is just right too !
Macro is brutal, but that close up pic shows that you captured the high and low lights on the face very well and achieved smooth blends and not hard contrasts.
Figure painting is not easy, but you have produced a much better result on this than I did on my early attempts, as in everything practice is the key so keep at it mate, figures look so good against a plane or a tank, you can knock yourself up a nice little diorama

Cheers Pete. Appreciate the feedback and help throughout mate.
I've actually thrown some figures into shopping baskets along with matching kits for future builds with a dio here and there in mind. It does add a lot to the creative process of showing off a model doesn't it? I don't usually like Pilots in my planes as a rule, but I have no beef with them standing on the wing, or on the ground in front, having a sleep under etc etc. lol So figures will definitely play a part in a lot of my future builds, thanks to this workshop. [smile]

Nice model Mike, I do like the contrasting colour scheme you've used, bright but still keeping the air of darkness about the figure. Good clean painting. You certainly have done this Dwarf model justice.[thumb]

Sorry, but I'm going to have to steal some of your ideas, like the way you've done the base.
Great result.

Simon an excellent end result. You have all the right colours and even did some weathering a very nice touch.
Never noticed there was no strap to the rifle, still thongs did get damaged during a war. The colour on the rifle is excellent.

Well done you.

Ah well, nevermind.
