Show your painted Corto ...
« on: April 12, 2018, 07:59:05 PM »
To celebrate the new LAF members miniature "The International Adventurer" I thought it would be a nice idea to have all your different painted versions on parade in one place. We are not in a hurry, so if you'd like to show the miniature in the upcoming Lead Painter's League first, so do it and post it here again after the round has ended. I hope we'll see many manifestations of Marc Copplestone's newest masterpiece here, and this is my version for a start:

Ah, he is so good Michael  8)

Love the sea shells, the inlaid lapels on the pea coat, and the leather cap band.
So much to admire about the painting on that miniature  :)

Anyway, great idea.
I've posted mine already on the original exclusive LAF figure thread itself, but here he is again...

Wow, those two are some start! I think this is a great idea. Given it's something that could be added to over time to provide a gallery of LAFers' versions of this lovely figure, I think a Sticky would be appropriate.

This is Kev Dallimore's interpretation.

Here's mine. Was going to use him in the LPL with some others but haven't had a chance to do the others lol

I'm calling him Jack Atlantic and he will be used in our Victorian games  :)

Where can one purchase this figure?  I didn't know Copplestone was still doing adventurer types.

Looking good James and Chris.
I see no-one has bucked the trend of the blue pea jacket yet...  :D
Who will be first to break the pattern?  ;)
