When I started this blog back in 2009 I envisaged it as a quick reference source for web pages that I may want to refer back to in the future, a kind of online "Delicious" with a touch of context. In the subsequent time it has developed in to something more. Nevertheless, when I examine the traffic statistics for the blog the most popular post by a long strech is the one entitled “Mark Bannerman”. It was my second post of April 2009 linking to an number of online articles Bannerman wrote on using oil paints to paint 1/35th scale heads.
His face painting technique is a real god send for me and raised the level of my head painting skills beyond my natural ability. For this I am eternally to him. So in the interest of responding to the trend of the Blogger statistics I felt it would be an opportune moment to remark on a thread which is currently active the Military Modelling website entitled: “Painting 1/35 Scale Heads Using Oil Paints:” Attempting"The Bannerman Way”. This thread has been going some and has a great selection of heads by some very talented modellers.
In the meantime here are some examples of my heads painted the “Bannerman Way.”
