    I like the piper mini, and the base fits her nicely - wandering through the ruins playing her flute/lute (whatever that is she's got).

    And I dig the mad professor look too, I've taken to wearing reading glasses inside my optivisor. A testament to advancing age and waning eyesight I suppose.

    Also so trying an experiment on stripping a resin bust.
    The picture below is a bust having been Dettol stripped after I screwed up the airbrushing of the skin.
    Really screwed up, Royaly.
    So I've just tested Biostrip 20 on an old GW Inquisitor Scale figure and been impressed (Really impressed) but didn't have before pictures, so doing this one overnight.

    Well that's a disappointment.
    Biostrip 20 can melt Resin. Just lost lots of detail out of the hair and nose.
    Metals fine but not Plastic.

    simple green and an ultrasonic cleaner maybe next time? That's fairly gentle.

    1;- what a cracking idea!

    2:- Might try to do some photographs tomorrow as I haven’t done any in Donkey’s years (Which a technical term indicating age only slightly less than my own.)

    What do you all think?

    Got to admit to some sorrow here though in taking these photos I've discovered that my Nikon D300 DSLR that my wife bought me, has started to display some damaged pixcels.

    The green flesh of the orc is really nice. Could be my own rapidly deteriorating eyesight but the eyes look like they are looking in slightly different directions.

    Both busts are exceptional... I really like the orc skin, has a nice aged look to it which plays out that veteran feel... great work on both!!!

    I can't believe my eyes!! I do believe this is the first dragon I've seen you paint in years, which is incredible seeing you own ALL the blasted dragons in the galaxy.
    Fantastic start Mike
