Great tip about the faces. Think I will give the skintone washes a try too.
I am very glad that you like my little diorama with the General Staff. The Prussian General Staff is a very early set of Strelets, but contains many great characters with different poses and uniforms.
Yes, I still need to improve the painting of the faces.
I had first covered the recesses (eyes, mouth) with a dark brown washing in the faces of these figures. But when photographing with zoom, the faces looked as if the generals had worked in a coal mine. :confused:
On the Gneisenau figure, which stands on the left side of the table (with coat), you can still see remnants of the dark wash on the face.
So I painted them over again and painted the details with a fine brush.
But I am very grateful for your tips, because I am not satisfied with the faces yet.
I try to make it better in the future...
@Minuteman: Correct, some of my Pomeranian musketeers and Westphalian landwehr-men are used as staff-guards :+1:
indeed, a very nice diorama. May I ask you where are the buildings from? I like very much the way you've painted the roofs.:+1:
Great work! Thank you for sharing!
this is correct...its the Danish Farm-Building from HELJAN.
Some of this old HELJAN-kits still exist.
I bought this farm building years ago...I think 1992..
It was broken into parts, so i build it up again and painted it a little bit.
