Default IG Standard Bearer

Here's a few shots of my IG standard bearer. The banner will have the freehand done by someone else. ;D






Sorry about the disappointing picture quality/background.
Thanks for looking, comments welcome.

I love the color of the fatigues.

But Thats not a standard! Its a rather small flag.

Company Standard. Generally not as large and lavish as the regimental standard.

Wow... This is one nice model!

I really like the fatigues, its prefectly highlighted! How much did you blend it?

Also, the red flag looks amazing! I'm really glad someone is embracing the idea of small Company Standards. In most militaries, companys usually have small flags with simply thier number on it. I really like the realistic feel to it!

Do you have any more pics of other models?

Thanks for the comments. ;D
How much did I blend the fatigues? i'm not sure you you mean. I simply water down my paint so the topmost layer is slightly transparent.
I haven't taken any pictures in a while.

For what I see I'm divided.
The colour on the clothes and the blending are looking great.
Also the sunglasses do so, but I'm missing some "highlights" at the model.
The skins colour looks to similar to the clothes colour and the leather parts are missing their own colour even if it would be similar to those of the clothes.
The banner look nice but all in all the minis impression is "unfished" in some kind a can't declare.
But I'm really sure that finishing those "unfinished" parts would create a real fine result.

PS..
Also finish the base.

Greetings

Hmm, doesn't look finished you say? I'll try to make it look more complete. Thanks!

Well, whatever you did, it looks great. I agree with Wolkenmann, though, maybe a little more definition around the leather belt and things of that sort.

The flag needs better blending between the dark red and the light red. right now it looks like 3 red streaks.
