This is a metal fig from the popular Kinder Surprise chocolate eggs and is labelled on the base as 'Swiss'. Was trying to paint something more difficult. Well what's going to happen when I'll buy some Landsknechts? Hope I'll be prepared.
The fig is surprisingly good. Finished with the last drops of my enamel varnish. On the other hand, I found the reason why that certain KV-1 had become so ugly: the Revell Olive Green crumbles when it gets in touch with a thinner or varnish. Sh*t. My advice for anyone who wants to paint with it: throw it away or never, ever try to buy one!
Double highlights all over except the face and hands. Started with a blackened tone, then the original shade straight from the container, after that I added a bit of a lighter tone here and there. The colors are quite random anyway.
I cannot imagine how you guys paint eyes. I've tried it with a magnifying glass, without it and my hands were shaking so much I had to retry at least five times. They are not usually that shaky but when I need to do something very accurately.
Keeping the topic on here's a painted review of more figs from an Hungarian author about this Kinder series. I did actually own three Samurais too but I've got only one now and am too much afraid to paint. Got some courage back after doing this one, it ain't so bad.
