This build went through pretty slick. Although, figure building and painting are not really my biggest attributes; I can safely say, I have improved a little since my last figure build. I am still working on getting better so please go easy . The figure is from Live-Resin. I must say, this i my first figure and armory from them, and I must admit that their stuff is simply amazing. The detail in the figure and weaponry is phenomenal. If you have not bought anything from them, then I urge you to do so.


Now, I wanted something small, but would make an effective statement to the viewer. I wanted a theme that was just about 'being'. Now, I wanted to do a multi camo but I was not too successful in achieving the end result. I still need more practice. So I decided to leave the multicam design for next time. Hope you guys approve. Otherwise go right ahead and go to town on me.

This is simply awesome
If your skills at painting is not your biggest things - then I wouldn’t like to hear what you think of my “skills”

Would love to see this live

Very well done. I especially like the crushed plastic bottle nearly underfoot and the magazine in the truck bed. Nice details that really add to the scene.

Another great build Charles, once again your attention to detail on the weathering and little additions tells a clear story. Right down to the scuff marks in the concrete dust where he has slid his boots around. I love it!

The one (little) thing that I picked up is what looks like a mould line on the left leg pocket in the 4th image, or it might be a hair?

Cheers, D

Well, a "mold seam" CAN be turned into an effective trouser leg seam, if one goes about it in the proper fashion. I have YET to see any cloth pair of trousers that DIDN'T have a seam where they are sewn together...

Really nice job. The way you separate the cargo bed from the cab does work.

I also like how you make the MK47 AGL aiming in another direction so it shows he's not really under threat from anyone.
