Amati 120mm ECW Pikeman

Added highlights after the Minwax staining; I like the way the stain defines the details before going over with washes and highlighting.

Next to a stand of Warlord Games 28mm pikemen below.
Used a 12" bamboo skewer for the pike - the pike head and butt spike came with the kit.
I'm likely not going to add a wooden base below the one with the figure as the pike makes it hard to fit in the display case already.
This was a fun kit to paint up and seeing it going for under $15 USD on ebay made it hard to resist.
As I liked the finish on the armor left by the Minwax stain, I masked those areas before spraying the figure with a matte finish.
Just a quick diversion while awaiting the arrival of Perry figures. Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all the best!

  3. Nice work DeanM ... it's always good to paint varying scales (120mm here) as it keeps the hobby interesting, at least it does for me :)

    1. Thank you kindly, Simon! Appreciate your visit and kind compliments. Warmest regards, Dean

      P.S. the armor was done the way I do 28mm - black undercoat and semi-drybrushed on Vallejo gun metal - highlighted with bright silver. The Minwax stain tone it down a bit and tied it together.

  9. Splendid looking giant pikeman! I had to wait over a month for a Perry delivery earlier this year, that's in the UK, it just varies a bit I guess!

    1. Thank you very much, Iain. I suppose I've been spoiled in the past with the fast shipments from Perry. Some around a week and a half here to the Westcoast of US. Kindest regards, Dean

  11. Lovely work Dean. Does the tape not affect the paint underneath?

    1. Thanks, Simon - no harm done to the paint as the tape is actually made for masking painting areas. Picked it up at a dollar store. I've used it before when I painted camo on a Matilda tank too. Warmest regards, Dean

  12. Brilliantly done Dean. The pike came up a treat. My, he's a giant compared to 28 mm figs (which are not exactly small)!

  13. Hi Dean, You have been busy since I last logged in! What a great figure. I think large figures are superb, I just haven't done any for years. Beautiful painting and very inspiring.
    Best wishes,
