Just completed this set by "Evolution Miniatures" for a friend. Some impressions before they'll leave tomorrow.

Awsome.

 

Could you do mud like you did on their knees, but on their shirts and equipment as well?

Lars, those figures are terrific! They have a great sweaty, grimy, hot, and tired, look to them.

That's amazing work. I can't imagine the number of times a paint brush must touch each figure to get them looking that good.

Thanks everybody very much for the kind feedback, I appreciate it!

 

 

Awsome.

Your absolute right! When painting the mud on the knees I overshoot (right term?) or did wrong with not painting it on elbows, weapons etc. as well. Good hint!

Great work Lars!  The figures look excellent.  Everyone has their own ideas on painting and weathering.  I think you did just enough mud to suggest the sweat and grime with out overdoing it.  Well done.

 

Are those figures resin?  They are nice figures.

Awesome work Lars. These figures show their exhaustion of combat very well. Are they resin or plastic figures?
