Life Miniatures tank commander bust

After cleaning the parts in warm soapy water and priming with Games Workshop Chaos Black I applied the basecoat of Vallejo Cork Brown (70843/133). I actually airbrushed it on as previously trying to spray Vallejo has been problematical however this time after a good tip off I thinned the paint with Vallejos' Airbrush Thinner and it worked very well. The only thing is next time I spray it I will add a couple of drops of acrylic retarder as the tip of the needle became clogged a couple of times;
One thing that HAS become apparent in this shot are the areas of shade and highlight on the face and this will be very useful when painting later on. I just really hope I can do this bust justice.
