In a departure from the usual painting activities, something new was tackled this week. What was that? A metal figure in 54mm crossed the painting desk.
On a whim, I purchased a couple of 54mm figures from eBay. At first, I was unsure whether to leave the figure in its natural state of bare metal with a nice patina or paint the figure. For the Landsknecht with halberd, I opted to give him a coat of paint.
First, the sculpting detail on the figure is remarkable. Crisp lines with deep undercuts and no flash. Nice! The results turned out pleasing too.
What will I do with him now? For now, he will adorn my desk.
