Panoceania Fusiliers Part 3

Hi All,

Its been another fun day painting the PanO Fusilier, in-between all the Christmas prep. I have managed to complete him(minus the basing, which will come later).

I did have loads of pics from all the stages, but to be honest I have just had family decent on me and I really haven't the time to edit all of them. What I do have though is my full painting guide and some good all-around pics of the finished mini.
