Hola compadres!
here's a little something i did recently. just read a very good book on Armored Reconnaissances units and decided to make a little dio on the subject.
used PAPERCLAY to sculpt..the pros swear by milliput BUT Sorry,....e' that! TOO labor intensive so nope for me..this stuff air dries in 24 so it's all good despite it's imperfections.
also a BIG thanks to the guys here who helped out with the HBT wrap info!

Wow! You made good use of that ugly ACE workshop HS, very effective and it adds real dynamics to the figure.
Makes me want to grab that HS now.

Amazing work. I really dig these action figure/statue hybrids, huge influence on the direction of my work at this point.

Very nice figure - and I'm impressed byt the paperclay(!) work as well.

But to nitpick, that's not a diorama, it's a base. :)

Great figure, sorry to be picky but is the anatomy of the right arm not quite right? The shoulder seems a little low.

Miguel, what was the base body you used for this?
thanks guys! boss, well the body is the DiD new version with exposed joints sculpted over and sven the right shoulder is still posable so no problem poping it a little higher ALTHOUGH it looked within anatomical correctness to me.

peace

I have a buddy that had a talent for seeing potential in unpainted lead figures, always awed me. You have the same kind of eye, who knew the ACE sculpt could look so good? I think the cap helps with the overall facial dimensions, and the snarling sculpt looks much better from your angle. ACE should've ducked their "head on" shot.


The mixture of practical, but decidedly non-elegant uniform components is striking, it seems like German troops in the Med adapted a lot like this. I think you've depicted the recon type quite well. I don't have that book, but have several others which cover the subject, and these guys were innovative, and flexible, with a lot of elan.
