Italeri Indian warrior AWI 1/72. Pt 2.

Hello all,

Just a quick post tonight of a figure that I was going to use in a duel with Paul (off of Paul's bods) but decided after seeing all the mould lines to go with the other one, a better decision I think.

A bit gruesome I know, but what the hell why not I say. II have seen this figure in a very good diorama using the Italeri British cavalry bloke on his knees just scalped.


Quite chuffed with the skin tone on this bloke, its amazing what you can do with a quick wash of burnt umber.

The war paint is not too bad either, not sure if it is historically correct but I am sure some one will tell me.

AAAHHH mould lines!!!!! When will I ever learn!
I am happy with this bloke even with the mould lines. It is a great set that can be converted quite nicely, not that I have but seen on Bennos figures forum.

PLEASE CLICK ON IMAGES FOR A LARGER VIEW AND ANY COMMENTS MORE THAN WELCOME!

Cheers for looking,   Rich.

That's an impressive painted figure Rich! And I agree about the skintone, it's perfect! Moldlines are a nightmare for all of us!

PS: I think he has shoes! ;-)
