Beginning a new figure scene... trying something new for me: Italian infantry. This scene will take place in Russia circa winter 1942. 4 Italian figs, 1 Russian civilian. The figures so far (mfr's images):
Started with the officer from the Royal Models kit. I spent an hour with the Dremel / pin chisel bit, removing the head out from under that cool cap, replacing with a Hornet head. Used a spare hand to remove the pointing, "Hey You" pose, to depict more of a "move, plz!" pose:
I've been trying to eek more detail out of the figures, scribing along cuffs, straps, etc. Here's the Alarmi figure with some of this goin' on:
Results (I think it looks pretty good, brings out the relief):
Remove some resin in spots to get the clarity of the details:
Here they are together, the action of the scene's storyline will be talked about a little later. Nothing too dramatic or anything. Just tryin' to get a new project rollin'.
If you're here, I thank ya...
On the workbench: every tool, paint, brush, glue I own
