Yours is pretty damn good too Rich, well painted figures, and I've seen the entire base, it looks very natural. Thanks for the duel, it was a lot of fun :)

The camouflage is supposed to be this:

Of course in 1:72 it is impossible to make such small squares and straight angles, but I was already happy that the colors turned out alright.

All was painted with Vallejo model color. For the sand color I used a mixture of light sand (837) and dark sand (847), for the grayish earth color I used a mixture of German camouflage beige (821) and light gray (990) and the darkest color is green gray (886). The pouches and vest are painted in middlestone (882).

congratulations to you both on fine work, Maurice I noticed something interesting on the camo pattern you did, if you concentrate when you look at it you can see it clearly, at first glance the detail of the pattern looks washed out. (or maybe its just me :mrgreen: )

Outstanding work on a very difficult cammo Mo. That was what sold it for me.

Nice work too Rich, I love the signaller.

Nice job both of you,

Now you need to translate this win into another crack at the Golden Brush Mo. If you put as much thought and effort into a full comp entry as you have here it's only a matter of time before the Brush is yours mate. :headbang:

Congrat gents,

I like the vignette on busting out the door but I also like the snipers with the beauiful background. It was a tough choice for me.
