Well after more than 24 hours have expired I now can show you the first figure I painted for the Painting Challenge and thereby bring back a bit of life into this very blog.
starting into the challenge with my entry fee figure. Seemingly opposed
to all others I didn't go for the Wild West theme but decided (after
Curt pointed out to me the film is from Peckinpah also) to do 'Hauptmann
Stransky' from Cross of Iron.
miniature from Artizan Designs I deemed appropriate for the job.
Originally the figure had a Iron Cross around his neck but to stay with
the film I decided to remove it. As for the basing I imagined him in
some trench or command post.
I really enjoyed painting the figure, as I do with most Artizan figures. In fact, as I he's due to departure to Canada, I'm planning to do a second miniature for my own use too.
Thanks for viewing and hope you enjoyed!
