With US troops deployed to the boarder with Mexico, I thought I'd post this work I started in 2016, to show how little History changes. The figure represents A US soldier (National Guardsman) on duty on the US/Mexico boarder.

Anthony,

Very good looking model. I like the leggings.

Will you be sculpting sweat drops running down his face, or just douse the figure with glycerin?

I guess the best way to show sweat drops would be after the face is painted run some streaks of superglue for sweat. It would shine over the flat face colors. Thanks for the feed back

Being from Arizona I will tell you don't bother with the sweat on the face. But you can do dark sweat areas on the shirt perhaps. Even the dried salts on the shirt from prior soakings. Thin whiteish rings.
The temp. right now is 107 in southern Arizona but no humidity. That means that the sweat will evaporate off the face in seconds.

One more point is that there were over 50,000 troops in Arizona for the pre-WW1 problems here.

Thanks for the useful info. I seem to remember when I was stationed in Arizona not sweating. Of course being an officer it was against regulations.

That would be DMAFB or Huachuca.! Good luck with the figure. Looking forward to seeing your progress.

I've been cleaning my work space(no small task) as soon as I'm done I'll get on this one. I'm not the fastest painter.
