 You know your right Glen. When I painted my Indian War Elephant from the movie Alexander I found out that both side are different . So what I do now is look at the figure and then its off to my extensive library . I usually come up with an answer and besides I like looking at all those color pictures in my books. I then take notes on harness, weapons, armor, clothing. I agree with you Hannibal about cleaning up figures and weapons. I realize that when editors make there models it is a long process and they are cramming a lot of stuff into a very small space. I like the figures shown here. In the long run it is what you are happy with. Willie

I haven't seen the flat myself Glen
The unpainted flat has a sword not so rounded indeed.

I also compared with a painting of Benedikt Widmann , I think,

It could be that the painter had worke on the sword, as I do myself when I sharpen the weapons before painting them, and so lost the original shape?  It is so thin and easy to bend ...

Great work! Very colorful. Is the sword blade bent? It doesn't seem to conform to the curve of the scabbard.
