I'm pleased to say I am back to painting, I have a new job in Glasgow where I will be living in a flat for 5 days of the week and going home to Aberdeen at the weekends. As I will be spending most of my week in Glasgow I decided to take the opportunity to do painting. This is the first of 20 Offensive Miniatures 101 Airborne troopers.
I painted this guy up as a colour test to make sure I got the right "look" to the figure. Colours are a mixture of GW and Vallejo. I really like how he turned out, although I botched the face and skin tone slightly due to attempting a new method which didn't quite work, but ultimately turned out okay.
In other news I changed my petrol guzzling Rover 75 for a monstrously powerful Vauxhall Vectra 3.0 Litre V6 CDTI SRI, Its lovely and fast but I get like 450 to 500 miles from the tank. Economy and speed for the win! And even better its in go faster red.
