This is a 1/10 scale half-figure from MJ Miniatures. It was a pleasure, clean-up was a breeze and everything fit well. The only putty needed was a tiny dab where the upper shield strap is attached on the left shoulder. It was painted mostly with acrylics and some Testors' enamels and metalizers.















The yellow on the shield was Tamiya from a rattle can. I added the tongue to the Dragon's mouth for a little extra detail and a touch of color. Thanks for looking. Al

Very nice work Al. Have you considered adding scratches and chips to the paint on the shield?

Thank you, Jesper. I had thought about adding some wear and tear to his shield, but I had already done other figures with battle-scarred shields, like the one below.



So I decided to leave this fellow's shield relatively pristine. Al
