Back to this fellow for a while..

Dulled down, and initial metallics painted on. AK Real Metals.. such great coverage with a brush!

Will leave the metallics till tomorrow and then buff them to smooth and shine, then I expect to use an oil wash over them to add depth and richness.

been working on the metals.. reduced the rougher sparkliness. need to let them properly dry to get an oil-wash on for some contrast though. a little general tweaking elsewhere too.

almost at the point where I start working on the plinth which should be relatively easy I think.. once it is all together I will do some final detailing on edges, the face etc then try to get a matte finish I am happy with.

You will find that over the next few months the oil will loose its shine, the surface dries, but the oils continue to rise to the surface and dry with contact to the air, this can take some months, leaves a slight sheen that brings the figure to life. ;)

Hopefully. the medium seems to create a very different finish though along with speeding up the drying. Will see how he looks over time!

Nice work indeed, you might want to add a sealer coat if you haven't already. It's a tough choice as to which, Matt will look better but will attract the dust, gloss is harder wearing but looks like something from the Britain's range of figures.
Lovely work on the blending.

Its in the cabinet so only limited dust.. I will be leaving it as it is for some months just to see what the final finish is before possibly adding any more finish.

What I MAY do is go all armour-modeller and add some actual dirt and grime at some point.

So, he got dug out, his equipment completed and some finish and base.

Not totally thrilled with it, but happy enough for a first dabble back into figures and a first experiment with full-on oils.
