"The response to my group build has been staggering." @dlee
So this is my attempt at reproducing some heraldry for a knight bust. This belongs the family of Vallois. If anyone is interested I will post pictures of the finished piece once done!

Of course we're interested! Welcome onboard at iModeler. Your technique shown here is very impressive indeed. How's the "dirt" done?
Hey! Thanks for the kind words, once everything was painted, I stippled different shades of brown on the shield, lighter at the top, darker tones at the bottom, then using a slightly damp brush I dabbed at the paint until I had a random effect that I liked ?
Thanks for clarifying this. I've been looking for something like this for my airplanes...
The best part about this 'reproduction' is that THEY did it "free hand" as well, so symmetry doesn't have to be perfect (but yours seems to be anyway) - lol. Welcome!
Yeah I was very aware I wanted it to look neat but also realistic and respect how it would have been done back in the day...
Fantastic, Jay. Look forward to seeing the knight!
Many thanks, mine and my group of students versions will be appearing in a future issue of my digital magazine The Illustrated Historical Artist, but il be sure to post here too ?
Please do. I'm not the only one here who's thinking they need all the possible help out there with figures.
This is really exciting, Jay - look forward to lots of posts.
please do post! the shield looks great!
Thanks a lot, really happy about the response and reaction I’m getting here ?
I'm with the growing crowd - please post more! And welcome to iModeler, Jay!
Thanks Jeff, I was aware that it’s mainly scale modelling so never too sure how a figure painter would be received, but so far it’s been great!
One of my mates is a great figure painter, though more the Fantasy mode, and has won prizes at several of the international competitions. He’s given me a number of practical tips over two or three years now which I sometimes manage to put into practice - your techniques also remind me of his work.
