From MartinC - Athena (8 pts)
With the Indians finished I needed a change of scene so I painted this 40mm model of Athena by Hasslefree. Obviously as she is by Hasslefree she is naked, which should make Ray happy.
It's a beautiful figure, in 3 parts plus stand. This was painted with lots of washes, new method to me, and I'm really pleased with how she came out. Nothing worse than photography to pick out the blemishes though
So obviously the symbol of Athena is an owl but I couldn't paint one, I tried loads of times but t was rubbish so a posh stylised alpha will have to do
Really am pleased with the skin tones, but another mould mark found.
So 1 40mm figure = 7pts
Erm, ahem, well... I'm not sure what to write. Maybe it would be better if I just said, well done mate and gave you the points! Actually putting multi-part figures together can be a real pain in the bum so well done getting this in once piece. I'll thrown in a bonus point for the shield making this an eight pointer!Lee
