Miss FIGZ 2012

This was my contribution in the 33rd painting competition on Benno's Figures Forum. It all started with a funny poll over there. Question was: "Who's Miss Benno's 2012?". There was a list of female figures wich we could call our favorite. At last "Helena from Greece" won the contest! Reason enough for me to paint her and bring her for real in competition. This time she didn't win but took fourth place. You can't win all!

The base and static grass is from Games Workshop, the flowers from Green Line from Fredericus-Rex, the Ionic Column is from Unicorn Models and the figure is an original Atlantic figure from Greek Life in the Acropolis set.

The lady is 35 years old and still looking very good. What I mean is, that it was a very nice sculpted figure at that moment.

Enjoy the pictures!










I hope you like her!

  2. Great painted Lady and a wonderful arrangement. 35 years old? For me she's looking timeless ;-) Atlantic had some real great sets.

    1. Thanks Bruno! Yes they had some real nice sets. Some of them are re-released by Nexus. But when I can get the original ones, I buy them!

  7. Remarkable figure and a very well done base. I haven't used the GW grass before, but I may have to give it a try.
    Fourth place; you were cheated!

    1. Thanks Mike! No I wasn't cheated, they were better as my entry! The GW grass is very nice to work with. I bought some boxes on half of the price. He was selling out! ;-)

  9. 35 is a good age and you´ve done her justice. Very nice colour combination, the blue offset with the grey and green
    Cheers

    1. Thanks Paul! Normally I never mention the age of a lady but in this case I couldn't resist. She looks so good for her age! I'm pleased you like the colour combination!
