Partisan Sniper Reminder

I have had this figure for two or more years and even though I knew what I wanted to do with it I had not got round to painting it. I had started pre-challenge but did not like the coat so had to take it back to metal and start all over again.

It's an Artizan figure from it's WWII eastern front Partisan packs but I felt it would be better served as a French lady with attitude. I did my usual trick of using a stone wall made with my Linka mould as a pavement. To cover up the obvious placement of the base I added a poster I had downloaded from the internet scaled down to act as a poster she had ripped off the wall.

I cut away a section of the poster so it looked ripped and also painted the rear so it was not an offensive paper white finish. I originally had the coat a almost black but felt it made the figure dull dull DULL!! so in the end went to the opposite end of the spectrum.

So what if she is not practical, she had better be a good shot instead. The figure was sent off to a mate for no better reason than just because, ended up arriving on his half birthday so perfect timing in the end. I still have a load of male Partisans to paint up so maybe these will get done in the next month? Maybe.

    Looks good, Ian. And I bet she's a killer shot.

    1. Thanks Pete, nice and bright. I have noticed recently that I tend to paint rather drab even when I aim for bright. She is not bright but the colours are nice and rich
