    The thing is I paint for display, not playing at a table so it's more likely to be looked up close. Granted even at a one foot distance, you still don't see much of the details on the eyes, but I still try to make them. Sort of gave up on irises at the moment though. I just paint them white and add shader for a better definition.

    I found my real problem is trying too hard to do touch ups. While painting, up close, under a big spotlight, of course I notice things I don't like. I need to stop doing this. I almost ruined my Penthesilea because of it. Had to cover one eye....

    You are correct good sir! Just struggling to get time at the moment to get much done. However those bad boys are on my list to do.

    Thanks man lol! I got into JSA just as the new army was introduced so was able to get my hands on Asuka. So sad she is gone as she is such a nice mini! Still a few floating around on the net if you look.


    Eyes are tricky, so I always do them first on a face so that I can clean up any mess later as well as get them right without wrecking what I have done on the face already.

    I think I found one Asuka in a store in France, but I didn't get it at the time. I did get my hand on a Naga Sniper though. Should arrive soon.

    I've seen contradicting accounts for eyes of people starting with them and others finishing with them. But I feel starting is definitely a better idea.

    The Brawler models are really cool!

    It's too bad that their fluff makes them out to be the crappy soldiers kicked out for disciplinary issues and unable to get any non-violent work...

    Ma
    Make your own fluff then! I made my Oznat a defector to the human side!

    I like that you mention the feet pointed inward rather than the heels as female detail. XD

    - but ye this good concept and minature execution - it is very femine thing to get feet pointing invards

    They still look great though. My favorite mini I painted so far is one. Modified a bit but the base is there!

    INFINITY JSA: Miyamoto Mushashi Aristeia Version
    [​IMG]

    Got my hands on the metal Aristeia version of Miyamoto Mushashi (Musashi). Painted him in honour of the original colour scheme. I added cherry blossoms to denote Spring, as one of the four seasons of Musashi theme I'm playing with. Now if only Corvus Belli would release another version of this guy, I could do the winter version lol! Just can't bring myself to paint the original mini as the quality and scale doesn't stack up with the new models, so I may be waiting a while to finish this project...

    Too bad you already painted Yojimbo, who is sculpted to look like Toshiro Mifune. Mifune played Musashi in the 3 Musashi movies in the 1960s.

    If there is one thing you can count on Corvus to do it is release another Musashi. Probably in a Dire Foes pack with Joan.
