1/72 figures loose always a bit of their charme when they are showed in extreme extension. (I know that ;-) )

Nevertheless this is a great painted figure. That unicorn looks awesome. I knew this was a work from the hands of free-hand-heraldry-master Thomas Willers.

Congratulations Thomas for a fine victory! Finally a "Thomas" from Germany gets the golden brush ;-)

Well done Thomas :thumbup:

Freehand designs in any scale are hard to achieve. At 1/72 they're damn near impossible :shock:

A worthy winner of the "Golden Brush"
