Hernan Cortes

I'm really excited to start this first of a two figure set depicting Hernan Cortes and Montezuma II. Both figures are from Pegaso Models and are first rate. Here I've started the Cortes figure by painting the flag and base. The design on the flag was taken from the boxart. I managed to get a nice photo of the flag design (thanks Danilo) and have spent a few sessions getting it blocked in. Still work to do, but the basics are in place. The figure itself has had the first stage of the armor started. I polished all the metal and have started laying in washes of oil paint to tone it and emphasize it's shape and details. Much more to do on him so stay tuned for more updates....
