    That weathering is awesome. Also, great use of that sculpt. Usually that sculpt looks like someone scared but you changed it up nicely to reflect a more shouting, agressive face.

    This is a great figure, and the understated but accurate background makes it even more so.

    Man Marshy, I love your Brits, and this is no exception. It looks excellent man, and super real. Great figure. Oh, yeah, I love the base too. It's crazy how simple it is, it works perfectly.

    That is fantastic, I thought the first one was the reference picture. The weathering is great and the photography is too. Well done.
