    Well, it didn't take long for the snipers to get Dirty Harry in their sights. Dicks.

    Yes I agree about the wicker.
    It does look less blocky irl, the photo doesnt do it justice. But alas your correct, Andy had pointed it last night also.
    I still think it looks better than a plain jacket but I agree I've missed the mark on this one.

    Also either CMON all hate Clint Eastwood or my troll is back, votes at 5.5.

    Can not believe that score ! We really need a change in the voting as this is getting silly now.

    Yes we do it is bad news when an accomplished competition winning artist of Lees' standard is getting repeatedly sniped with work that is of an excellent standard receiving scores associated with weak tabletop. Enough here's the rub; you end up with people not posting on the gallery any more and posting on other sites such as putty and paint. CMON will loose its best contributors over this sort of stuff.

    Yeah, saw that. Sorry 10, I hate to play devils advocate, but I do think the sculpt isn't spot on and I wonder if Dirty Harry isn't a little dated. I thought the jacket looked great until I saw Rituals comment. Still looks great though.

    The real question is, what's next? How about something way over the top like one of those Pegaso Lady's or some Forgewolrd Dragon or something?

    Naw, regardless of the sculpt being less than perfect, the paint job is primo, the base is even excellent- I mean, that quality of wood alone shows an investment in the work. The jacket doesn't take a thing away, looks tweed to me. And if you know Dirty Harry he wore this, so points for realism there. There is no excuse for a super low score. All I can say is this: often times, it starts low but ends much higher. Wait it out and it will be a much more accurate indication if the work.

    Ten ball, I'd love to see you do a mounted figure of some sort.

    Ha! Well, yes, he is a god. At least you are part of the pantheon!

    Yeah great job on this bust.

    Seems like the snipers have been out in force lately. I know some other people that have been having trouble. I think once you reach a certain number of votes CMON removes those that are too far from the average, so that should help. I'm not sure exactly how or when it's done so you'd have to ask a moderator for more info.

    Okay, so Dragonsreach can tell you but then he'll have to kill you. And since you're both in the UK he doesn't even have to cross an ocean or a channel or anything to do it... so probably best not to chance it.

    Best keeping to the registered score mate, it's generally fairer. Can't understand the ideology of sniping, but i did have a flim flab with a nasty message some years ago, all my scores plummeted permenantly, then i got a mail from a german forum member informing me that the chap i had the flim flam with had all their forum members annihilating my scores. i removed the images and opened a new account but lost so much enthusiasm. Best thing is not to fall to them, i did... in hindsight it has helped me be a better critic of my own work, and paint for myself, in my own way looking for something a bit out of the box keep on truckin' buddy

    Keep it up... do not worry at all about the score. I was quite anxious before but now I just let it go... For me the gallery is a way to store my miniature best pictures to keep them archived. Some were sold some were given so I have them no more. But I am still happy to look at them in the gallery and review them 2 or 3 years later to see my progress. I also use the gallery to show some people interested about miniature painting and showing off my work. The score is just a small part of it. You know what you did and what you achieved, you can compare your work to the best out there and see where to improve...

    In a way nobody need a score, this is just for our pride. I also would like to reach a higher score but to avoid being disappointed I almost don't look at it anymore.

    Your work is a reference for me and many members, your progress is just amazing and as an example of what most of new miniature painter can look at and get motivated!

    By the way, instead of all of us whining about score and snipers, where is your new miniature? I get used to see an already half painted new mini at that time?

    Cheers all, great comments as usual

    Note to beginners : don't hold mini while drilling the other side.
