This is the first time I'm showing some of my work on HF. I'm normally more active on Armorama, but since this little project dosn't have any armor in it, why not show it here.
The figure is from Warrior, the head is Hornet, Dragon helmet and straps from Aber. The whole thing is painted with Vallejo paints. The thing I'm most happy about is that it took me 3 hours to complete (assembling and painting).

Hi Johan,

what a good job in so little time ! Congrats !

And the fig is really expressive.

I heard that Vallejos are really good paints, i'll have to try them !

Cheers

Great choice of figure and nicely painted. Pity the hue of the images is so yellow.

Thank you all. I think the yellow light is caused by my lamp combined with my canon-camara's ability to enhance colour.

By the way, know that I have Frank's attention. Have you Frank seen the figure that I threw untop of the BT-7?

Once again, thank you for your kind criticism.

Nice, I like the attitude. One nitpick: perhaps the neck is a bit too long?

Very nice! Also neat to see that Vallejo acrylics could produce such a nice painted figure...one doesn't need oils or enamels or fancy expensive paints.
