Model Memorial

I think this is a Great War minischap. Standing at attention like that, he just seemed perfect for a statue, and so that is what he has become. The stone here is rather rougher than it would be on a statue in real life, but it works for me. Halford's grey is the undercoat. It then received a bit of drybrushing with lighter greys, then a sepia wash and a green wash in some spots. Lastly, some Ushabti Bone as a final drybrush and to create the writing on the front of the memorial finished it off.

Perhaps I'm oddly sensitive, but it strikes me as a rather sad, sombre piece.
