  1. Here he is - everyone's favourite safe cracker - Karl-Otto Alberty... This is the third "Kelly's Heroes" bust I've done from Mitches Military Models, and just as I think I've finished he goes and releases the Telly Savalas "Big Joe" bust. Well it'd be rude not to buy that one pretty darn quick and get him painted up so that I can re-create that classic "high noon" stand off scene from the film where Big Joe, Kelly and Oddball have their Powwow with Karl-Otto. I had a few challenges with this one, such as when I painted the blonde hair I realised I had painted the face too dark. Note to self - get the hair colour blocked in before going too far on the facial tones next time. And I also has fun getting the shading on the tunic to a point where I was happy with it. One of the things I try to do with figure painting is not get too bogged down trying to do a perfect job. I like to do each figure a little better than the previous one and when I feel I'm trying to push my skills too far I back off a bit and call it done.

  2. Here's a snap of a figure I have on the bench at the moment. Have made a rough start on the tunic - black is always "fun" to do And also getting the blond hair to look somewhere decent without looking too "Pat Butcher". The eyes have been painted, but he has more squint than Clint so they're not very easy to see. Probably about 40% done at the moment.
