After a few days of relaxation it then hit me again. After looking through several figure sets I thought it was a good idea to bring a new figure to my Teutonic army for my planned diorama. I chose a character from the Italeri set Teutonic Knights in scale 1/72 and start preparing the figure for painting.
First, the parts were cleaned with soapy water to remove grease. The next step was to fix the parts with double-sided adhesive tape to the closure cap of bottles.

As next the parts were primed with an airbrush. For this I have used a Vallejo gray primer.

Then I started with the first painting step. I tried a little bit pre-shading.

You think the painting of the parts start now? Oh noooooo..... It makes more fun to make a little conversion now! I decided to remove the sword and give him a lance instead. Also the shield was cut away and was replaced by a self made shield from sheet with an applied decal. Somehow I have to think about the sequence of steps again :-)
After this little confusion I've started painting. The next pictures show the humble result.
With this in mind....
