FIGURES: ALL ERAS

101st Airborne Sergeant, Iraq, 2003

120mm: Verlinden #2008

Year Finished: 2011

Notes: A great resin figure.  Almost all of him is airbrushed using Vallejo Acrylics, including the face.  Only the fine details were gone by brush.  Lots of drybrushing to give depth and show wear.  Still working on getting the eyes correct.  His are a little bugeyed to me.

British Redcoat Private, Bunker Hill , 1775

120mm: United Empire #AB02

Year Finished: 2008

Notes: All resin figure.  He is done in oils, and I'm not happy at all with the results.  It's not the kit's fault, it's all me.  I ended up with a very glossy and 'cartoonish' looking figure.  One day I will strip all of the paint off and give it another try.  But until then, he stands next to my Continental Army Private taking abuse for looking so silly.

Cavalry Sergeant, Arizona, 1878, "Shot Down"

54mm: Andrea #S4-S07

Year Finished: 2007

Notes: All white metal parts.  Everything painted using Vallejo Acrylics except the ground work which is craft paint and Woodland Scenics ground cover. Lots of drybrushing and washes to give depth and show wear.

Continental Army Private, Yorktown, 1781

70mm: Elite Minatures #ST70.04

Year Finished: 2012

Notes: All white metal figure.  All of the primary base colors are airbrushed using Vallejo Acrylics, including the face.  Details and final shading done with a brush .  Lots of washes and some drybrushing to give depth and show wear.  Base is static grass.

Delta Force, Classified Loc, 2009, "Tier 1 Climb"

70mm: Knight Models #003

Notes: All white metal figure with resin ice face.  Another fun figure to paint.  It immediately made me think of the Cliff Hanger mission in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.  He is airbrushed in Vallejo Acrylics including the first set of high and low lights.  Then lots of washes and highlighting to give depth.  I beefed up the ice face by using some artists thick matt medium gel applied in layers of different tints of blue and green.  I like the effect it gave..

Year Finished: 2014

Germanic Knight, Lithuania , 1330, "Red Knight"

120mm: Verlinden #1230

Year Finished: 2006

Notes: This is the Verlinden 'Black Prince' all resin figure.  I wanted to give him some color, do I gave him the red tunic and trim.  He is done in oils, except the armor, which is Testors Model Master Metalizer.  Lots of washes and highlighting to give depth.  The metal base was a gift from my brother that he hand turned on his lathe.  This one took home some hardware at the 2007 Arizona Regional 'Modelzona' show and at the IMPS National Convention in the same year.

Pathfinders, US Army, Desert Storm, 1991, "Night Shift"

1/35: Dragon

Notes: All plastic figures.  These are pieced together from lots of parts from several Dragon figure sets.  The desert smocks tails are made from tissue paper soaked in white glue.  Painted with Testors Model Master acrylics.  It was a pain doing the 'chocolate chip' camo, but I think it looks right.  I even took an award home with these guys at the 2002 Modelzona show!

Year Finished: 1999

Roman Centurian Bust, Italy, 130a.d, "First File"

200mm: Verlinden #1276

Notes: All resin figure.  The cape is done in oils, the face and plume are in Vallejo Acrylics, and the armor is Alclad metallics.  Lots of washes and highlighting to give depth.  

Roman Legionnaire, Antioch, 253a.d, "Glory of Rome"

54mm: Verlinden #1783

Year Finished: 2007

Notes: All resin parts.  Everything including the armor is painted using Vallejo Acrylics. Woodland Scenics ground cover. Lots of drybrushing and washes to give depth and show wear.  I was lucky enough to win a medal with this at the 2007 Arizona Regional 'Modelzona' show.

Snipers, US Army, Kosovo, 2005, "One Shot, One Kill"

1/35: CMK #F35106

Year Finished: 2005

Templar Knight Bust, Jerusalem, 1186 a.d.

1/10: Young Miniatures #YH1827

Notes: All resin bust.  This excellent sculpt from Young Miniatures is also known as the 'Sean Connery' bust, for obvious reasons.  This is far and away my favorite figure ever, and I think probably the best job I've ever done on one.  Everything except the armor is painted using Vallejo Acrylics. The armor is Alclad metallizer. I airbrushed all of the base colors plus two levels up and down of highlights and shadows.  After that I switched to a brush for the final lights and darks.  Then some drybrushing and washes to give depth and show wear.   One day I might take him to a contest, but until then, he keeps a keen eye on me in my office at work.

Year Finished: 2013

Templar Sergeant, Jerusalem , 1241a.d.

90mm: Pegaso #90-038

Notes: All white metal figure.  An impressive sculpt from Andrea Jula.  He is airbrushed in Vallejo Acrylics, except the mail armor which is Alclad Metallizer.  Lots of washes and highlighting to give depth.  I really enjoyed working on this figure.

Year Finished: 2015
