Otto von Bismarck

It's me again... Contrary to my expectations I managed to spend some hours at the desk to paint a new miniature. I chose Otto von Bismarck, the official miniature of "Hamburger Tactica 2009" cause I wouldn't have finished a whole FOW-platoon in the few hours I had.

On this miniature I tried to do the highlighting in dependance to a fixed light source and added some blue to the skin colour to imitate more natural looking shadows. Considering, that it was my first attempt in this field, I'm really confident with the result.

By the way: Is the uniform I painted historically accurate? I really have no clue... My only inspiration were some black and white photographies.
