    Here's a little painting excercise in 120mm. The figure is by DES kits. I changed the head since the one provided was lousy and added a fag in his his hand. Thanks for looking

    Now that is totally great! One thing i never managed to do is paint a good unshaven face, this one looks real. Very fitting and the fag made a big difference, prosit once again Steve.

    Il-ostra Marco, x'nostalgija, i loved those books and somwhere at my mother's house there is still my collection of those books. I had quite a lot. Sorr for hijacking the thread but this was an automatic reaction. What great memories.
