Hornet figures

1/35 Wading Australian Soldier

by Sean Lomas


This is the excellent 1/35th figure of an Australian wading soldier by Hornet figures. He was a dream to paint and despite everyone seeing it saying "where's his trousers?" was one of the most fun figures I've painted in a long time. It wil be difficult to tell you what colours I painted the Uniform as its all different mixes of sand, beige, sap green it goes on. One thing I dd try to do and it looks better in reality, than on photos, is to make sure the legs were paler than the arms and head. I tried very hard to get the gaunt look of someone who is exhausted and show how hard it was in the Jungles. My own Grandfather fought in Burma.
