Simply breathtaking! I have long been a fan of your painting guides and wish you would do more!

Also, could you elaborate further on why you prefer the Perry brothers' Foundry-era style sculpts?

Thanks gents, much appreciated indeed.!

@poiter: The car is a 3D print and as of yet not commercially available. The tarp was added by me to hide a flaw in the print  :D

@Shahbaraz: You're perfectly right. I like my figures to 'pop' even if this means to go for high contrast and maybe less historical authenticity. That said I use way less contrast nowadays than I did a few years back.

@Hang Tuah: I've added a few new guides to the blog over the last few weeks, so you might want to have a look?  ;)
As for the Foundry era Perry figures: Well, first of all the caster doesn't suck as much as the one the twins are using nowadays. And second the figures are sculpted much cleaner, with less rough edges. Just looking at the faces they used to sculpt and how they do it nowadays makes me instantly want to toss their newer stuff in the bin. As our esteemed Captain Blood once put it (and I'm paraphrasing here as I can't find the exact wording atm):
-expressionist sculpting style-


So ranting aside I've finally finished a few more pieces:

British Paras with fallen/ captured members of 9th SS "Hohenstaufen" for Operation Market Garden:



Another 3D printed vintage car for a friends Salute gaming table
(http://28mmvictorianwarfare.blogspot.com):



A rather masculine nun (with gun?):



Panther & Puma:



And some reinforcements for my EW-Germans:

Outstanding on all fronts Sir!

I can't pick a favourite but, if forced, I reckon the Puma might be it. The tones on that, along with the really well thought out stowage colours, are just perfect.

Illustrates very nicely why I visit your blog on average several times a week :-)

Best regards,
