Awesome Paint job you did on that statue Ian!
Why don't you post an SBS on copper painting? That would be really great.

Stunning work Ian!
I too would love to see a SBS on painting bronze as this is one of the best, if not the best, depiction of aged bronze Ive ever seen.

Outstanding work Mr Hill. Glad to see you back doing stuff you want to do, much more enjoyable.
Like James said, "love the shit" and that base plate is amazing

Like everyone else I think you've nailed the bronze beautifully .
Just as a little something for next time I don't think the statue would have survived the impact of some of the heavy caliber rounds you've depicted, don't get me wrong I just think that the kentic energy alone would have taken the leg off.
Nice work, top stuff .

Very impressive work. I really love the overall look of it. I kind of agree with Coops on this, but still mighty good looking.

I suggest some early German armor and a smiling crew posing.

Looks Great! But is the statue too much oxidised for WW2 era? Meaning it's just 20+ year's old by then. But it sure looks like real copper statue!

Cheers Mikko

tHANK YOU FOR THE FEEDBACK

Some great suggestions. I have no modern soviet so that is out, plus I like ww2.

I would like to add a vehicle rather than just figures but the photography suggestion was a good one.

I would also like to add for the record that I did not make any changes like the shot hits etc. The kit came as a resin ww2 statue with all the damage , I just painted it. So those of you who are disputing the damage will have to take it up with VP studios.
I do tend to worry though when this type of detail is 'picked on' when it didn't even occurr to me to be overdone. It just doesn't seem too over the top to me and I actually thought that VP had made quite a nice piece and had added some CLEVER variation with the idea of battle damage. Let's not loose site of the fact that it's good to be accurate, but we can go overboard and get to serious about our models if we are not careful It's all about ENJOYMENT really, isn't it!

I will be going with a MK IVE at this stage I think.

As far as a SBS on COPPER statues, I don't mind but I don't have any progress shots so it could be a little hard - plus I don't have much spare time so we will have to see.
Thanks again guys.

Freakin' fantastic painting Ian!

I think a IVE parked in front of this would work well.
