Reinhard Heydrich

Started painting in the details of the tunic. The armband is complete as well as the tiny party pin. This is a 90mm figure so painting the little swastika on the pin wasn't something I was looking forward to. My intention was to use the artists trick of suggestion. This is where you paint in the details as best you can. Since most people know what the shape is the viewer gets tricked into thinking they see what belongs there. Confused? Anyway, I was extremely lucky being able to paint in the swastika. Probably won't be able to do that again. The enlarged view makes it look a bit sloppy but when you consider it's actual size it's pretty darn good.
