The Hunting Baron and Empress on a reccy patrol

The Hunting Baron and Empress on a reccy patrol

Postby Daryl » 17 Mar 2017

In the snow. (I left the base with a snowy finish as he will be fighting his battles in foreign lands at a later date so will be rebased then)
The horse (Empress) came out quite well...1st one ive painted in about 15yrs I think...tail and mane could of been better.

Revell horse and red leather saddle bags from cossack set, ab figures k98 (my scope)...the rest is all my work.
Happy with how it all came out, hes a bit oversized but I like to think hes just got a small horse.... even gave the baron some stubble which sort of worked.
WIP starts here

viewtopic.php?f=104&t=31848&start=200

Some bits worked, some didnt...I can see whats not right and il save those comments for the wip thread.
The only thing to look forward to… is the past.

Both the sculpting and painting are simply superb top class!, and something I and many many others can only aspire to.

Superlatives fail me!!!

Really look forward to your future work mate...... :cool:

Most excellent Daryl, I really love your pose you achieved, hard to believe it is only your second attempt a sculpting a figure from scratch, the painting is most excellent and the horse looks great too!

I have never had a crack at a whole figure before, but you have inspired me to have a go at it as I cannot find a Dutch 1940 mounted firgure for my colonel.

Cheers

Agree with the others - a work of art. This is akin to 1/35th scale figure modelling / painting.

Thx everyone. Only now I must confess the horse was suppose to be black with a white mottled finish, but it wasnt working so in a fit of temper I just qiickly washed the white paint over it ...then thought...ohhh thats looking ok, after a few layers and highlighting I was really chuffed with my grey horse. ;)
