Lovely detailed figures from Highgate, a joy to try to bring to life, no pun intended. Painted in the style of Gary Oldman.

Excellent job! Top marks for being the first person to show a painted version. He looks great, the colour for the clothes works and I think you’ve nailed the skin tone ;D

We’re going to create a customer gallery on the blog, can I have your permission to post him there?

Very much agree on the comments about colour palette, they work very well. It's a cracking figure and I can't wait to paint mine.

I think the idea of a customer gallery is great too.

Very nice, I'm definitely getting a long haired Dick Dastardly vibe from your paint scheme.

My 2nd Master. I thought I'd give him a Chinese robe, as no doubt he'd be a man of the World.

.  Thanks mate, it was a bit of a challenge, but I got there in the end. I just wish I had a better camera, as I think it looks better in the flesh.
I'm going to take a look at the blog now.

The robe is amazing! There's something about that figure that just looks evil! You wouldn't trust him to bring back your change after a round.
