In perfect japanese: -Hai!

I will dig something out of the mines of the grey legion mountain. Perhaps, stragglers from the first get a second chance?

I Think Plastic Battle might be up for a rematch?

Howdy Y'all
I didn't get to put any paint on my figure from the first campaign and had to drop out. I would like to join up if there is a second campaign. I wish to use the same figure and will post a photo to show that I haven't made any progress.
Thanks-I look forward to the second campaign.

Thanks it was just some thick square styrene slapped together and some right angle to act as a spacer. I thought it looked pretty good.

Well, after digging in the ranks of the old grey army, I dug this golden oldie out.



Its Robert Newton in his classic role as John Long Silver from Treusure Island. One of my favourite Movies and books.

I've started my project: this time it is going to be Roman Matrona, 200mm Pegaso Models bust.
First time painting bust with an airbrush so it's going to be difficult and full of errors for me...
Assembly was pefect, but there was a small error on a cast:
piece of necklace was broken and I had to replace it (did it with a guitar string )


Here she is primed:

And painting starts...





I hope to paint some more this week... If you have any comments plese flood me with them! I'm happy with the last bust I've painted only because helpfull comments from this site allowed me not to destroy it totally !

Brave choice of technic for painting, I have done a couple of resin figures this way, except for the small detail, and they worked out fine. Yours is looking superb so far and await your future posts. I will be doing a resin GB Tanker bust, and will probably use the same technic. What airbrush do you use?

Thanks Peter!
I'm using cheap double action Polish airbrush from MAR (it costed about 45). It is damn far from perfect and it is difficult to set, but I don't paint enough with airbrush to justify 200-300 expense... (especially that my other hobby is draining my account dry these days )
