Hi Christer,

Nice work. I particularly like the way you've worked the leather on this figure. It appears worn in all the right places.

Thanks Rudi!

The leather has a red and black mixed base, some mustard yellow drybrushing and a black wash.

Thanks!

The Miniarm kit included the resin figure and a resin base.

First of all, I painted the base in Tamiya white surface primer. Then I turned to Windsor & Newton acrylic (oil) -paint. Highlighted it with Raw Umber / Burnt Umber and used Paynes Gray as shadows.
