I started creating the groundwork for the figure, and chose for scene with a wall with iron fence. The wall and fence were converted from Historex pieces and glued together. The cobblestones were fabricated with magic sculp. After drying of the glue and putty, the groundwork was first primed with a Vallejo grey primer before it was painted in grey and earth tones. The fence was covered with a black undercoat.
I also made some more progress with the paintwork on the figure. The blending on the jacket, and painted the buttons and white border were finished. Highlights and shadow were applied on the red vest and the painting of white shirt was also finished. The last part painted were the leather belts in brown tones trying to give it a bit weathered look.
