Thanks Roy.

Yes !
Glazing to the rescue again !
Color back to correct shade.



Glaze w/ about 1/3 color.
About 4-5 light coats to change it but leave some of the base shade.


Craft store Glazing - 2 OZ. - 75˘. Don't paint without it...

Thanks Guys.

The dead soldier is deff. the focal point. Tried to pop him up some w/ few bright colors in the rubble.

Happy w/ the way the base looks but...

Unfortunately, the Lime Green NBC Suit color shifted when I went to oils. I'm going to try a Tinted Glaze to get him back or its a repaint...

I was reminded of your Russian today when looking at German war memorials; there is a statue of a shrouded dead soldier with a fist poking out in a final act of defiance.

Your finished work will be something to see; I look forward to it. I wonder if the other figure will speak to me as eloquently as the dead Russian?

Thanks John.
Exactly the look I was going for. Cursing Fate (and everything else).

I wanted him to have that contorted, arch back, arms throw out look you see in ppl who had the bad luck to be exposed to Chemical Weps...

Your Russian looks to me as though he's waving his fist, cursing his Nemesis with his last breath:
"A plague on you, dam' Yankee!"

Thanks David.
Got to find a color for that funky Russian Lime Green that use on their NBC Suits.


On a differnt note - I'll be in Aberdeen in late June next year with my boys, requisite father son trip to see the homeland...
Any suggestions ?

Small one, idea I've been kicking around for few years.

The standing figure I did for some past campaign.




The dead figure in Soviet NBC gear is new.




He will get buried in more rubble once find best spot.
