Let me present to you my first ever attempt at a 1/10 scale Bust.

I have mounted the figure so he is looking up towards the skies.
I've used various varnishes to get slight differnces to the clothing.
I wanted viewers to concentrate on the eyes, which is first thing people look at, so I applied about 5 coats of ardcoat graduated from top to bottom.



Thank you. Please enjoy looking as I have had in painting this.

Thanks Mike. I'm playing the odds here by having this in 2 places to try and get a Miniature Figure on the show to advertise what we have been trying to do.

Stunning result Nigel ! The paintwork is amazing but I have to say that the eyes are superb mate, there is a real sense of emotion in them that I haven't seen on a miniature before and this really brings the piece to life , there is a strength in the face but the eyes have a sadness to them that really gives this a human look.

I can only hope to produce something as good as this

Pete that is high praise coming from you, thank you.

Myself, I was just as taken back when I looked at it. I had to stop instantly if fear of doing some stupid touch up that would ruin the effect.
Every time I sit down, at my work station, I look at the figure. Simon is absolutely right when he said he expected a tear to run down his cheek at any moment.
I enjoyed playing around with the differing varnishes, the edge of the collar on his leather jacket is a good example.

How on earth am I going to do better than this. I love painting figures and all those years have lead me to this result. I now have a new barrier to break through...

I know what you mean, I had a similar thought after I had finished the Phantom. I am thinking that the best results come through when they are applied without overthinking (if that makes sense) i just followed my nose through the entire time time with that project and I bet if I started again and tried to reproduce it, it wouldn't be half as good.

I'm certain now (as Mike has said many times) that if you follow your instincts that the results will be fantastic

I do understand what you mean.

I've gone back to doing models that require no pressure. The one's I have in my stash that I really want to do. I know I can't finish the group builds in time, but I will finish them.

In some way I've made my hobby into something with a lot of pressure. I'm going to step back and gain control of my relaxing hobby. Doing an Airfix model, with flash on the flash, is a nice challenge. Lol
