1/16 scale Samurai Figure
« on: December 19, 2018, 01:03:27 PM »
Next model is this Samurai figure I got at Telford this year. The best thing about it is that if I make a total "pigs ear" of the face, it has a mask I could cover up the face with and just paint it gold.

I built one of these a few years ago, I enjoyed the build and it won a competition at the club.
Enjoy!
It was in 2013 and there is still a post on here but the photos have been deleted.

First coat of paint on the legs - you had a choice of green orange and I thought the green would stand out more against the coloured braid on the armour. 
What colour did you do yours Zak ???????

If its not a ship Haddock, we will put him in the 'stocks' and punish him.....
Letting down the Maritime side of the club, tut, tut...

No pressure Msea, just a gentle prod for the direction of the next subject.

Not a photo of a ship but the arms, legs and body bits put together.

More green on the arms and legs. The instructions say to do the armour "gunmetal" but decided that it would be an improvement if it was "gunmetal blue" -- buts that's just me ignoring instructions as always.
Hope everybody had a great Christmas.

Gunmetal blue on the helmet and armour. Next job is to start picking out the braid and gold detail on the armour.

Plain green into spotty on one leg.
Next job is to finish all the spots and then a dot into the middle of each spot -- or I could have just left it all plain green - but heyho its only for FUN.

Hi Msea,
This is a lovely piece of modelling. All those subtle paint effects, and their application.
Also I'm glad your posting, the other 'Brothers' including myself are being a bit 'lax' in posting.
C'mon 'Fellow Br others' lets start 2019 with a bang, and a whole raft of projects 'Old' and 'New' hitting the website very soon.
Cheers,
Bigkev
