Looks great, I was not offended at all by his appearance :P

Awesome! I really like what you did with the face and think the look you were going for really came across.

DeanMoto23 Jun 2012 1:59 p.m. PST

Wow! The facial features make him look like a far larger scale. Great job! Dean

I look forward to seeing the whole unit.

Thank you gentlemen for the kind comments. Hopefully one day I can have a complete unit LOL~

Victorious Secret;

WOW!!! Stunning, realistic to a pint that it is almost life-like. Great detail…I can only imagine what it will look like on a custom base!!

Now a question for you…you state that the Offensive Rifleman miniatures are smaller than Perry and Victrix… how much smaller. I was thinking about ordering some of the British Characters so that I could get some more British Sappers but now with your comment I am quite wary and would be disappointed to order Sappers (who are usually taller men) to find out that they are smaller.

Looking forward to your response.

Hi Hitman,

Thank you for your kind words.

To answer your question: I took a picture to show you the size difference. The Highlander figure on the right is the Victrix plastic. The British Rifle on the left is the from Offensive miniature in metal. As you can see, The British Rifle is little smaller.

How ever, I don't think it makes too much difference from gamers. But you can clearly see the difference. Since I only have one set from OM, I can not speak for other figures from their company.

My plan is to make the base little taller for the British Rifle to compensate the height.

I hope this help, and good luck to your project.

That could easily be mistaken for a 54mm figure or bigger ! Very well done and thanks for sharing. It will certainly inspire me to try and improve .

Great looking miniatures and a handsome hound.

What a great paintjob, full of character, he almost seems alive. Keep up the good work under Jerry's gimlet eye ;-).

Victorious Secret Inactive Member24 Jun 2012 5:54 a.m. PST

Thank you gentlemen once again.

Jerry paint some and eat some at the same time. This will reduce the workload very fast lol

If anyone wants to trade their Victrix plastic with my Perry plastic, please let me know. USA preferred.

Very well done on a 28mm, based on the image alone it could pass for a 54mm. A full unit of these will look fantastic!!


popeye Inactive Member24 Jun 2012 7:33 a.m. PST

wow… looking at those figures, i think i paint with a catapult. really well done

Victorious Secret;
Thanks for the size comparison shot. I really appreciate it. To me, that difference will be far too great, especially since Sappers were suppose to be big men. Oh well, I guess I will have to keep looking….

That is some very fine painting! Thanks for sharing and keep up the good work!
