They work ok mate - I like 'em. With stripes just paint them faster & with more confidence - if you dilly dally they end up looking wavy - just my tip. :thumbsup:

i shall try that NGD thanks. i think you may be right -in attempting to be careful my hesitancy probably isn't helping. Either that or i need a couple of whiskeys to stop the shakes !! :wink: :wink:

Yep red inner blue outer.

Re the painting - Strictly speaking the stripes on a shirt should not be dead straight as the shirt is moulded with ripples in it. It looks artificial otherwise.

That guy second right, bottom is looking up to the sky :lol!:

Ronaldo clone maybe?, checking his hair on the big 'in stadium' screen (f'kin furious and wanting to kill the c#nt smilie)

Hopefully Satan's got a nice warm spot on his side for that ####, and a huge hot poker ready :evil:

i only noticed that Will when i started painting the figure. the head is not loose just facing up- must have slipped thru Mark's quality control ! it'll do as a sub.

thanks for the positive comments gents. I dont paint to sell (though i have sold the odd one at the subby fair) just for my own pleasure. i like painting i find it quite relaxing. and thats what matters really. I think they compliment my existing HW collection ok-as Mark says the originals were quite often painted 'rough'. Would like to get my stripes a bit better-more practice eh Will?

There are some truly amazing painters on this forum who produce quite spectacular pieces of work. If anything though sometimes they are TOO good so i think sometimes the teams rather than compliment original subby make it look very poor. I shall keep it rough/shabby Mark (i cant do em any better if i wanted to!!)
