I need new trousers!

Again this is a figure sculpted by my good friend Alex. It's a "Landsknecht" with a kaketoe on his arm and a hole in his pants!  As you see I swichted colours on left and right side. I've seen this on pictures of this period and thought it would be a nice idea. This time the figure wasn't that easy to paint. There were a lot of hidden details and not easy to reach with the brush. Some parts I had to repaint because I forgot to paint the lower parts.But finally I managed and the result you can see here.

The occasion to paint this figure came by having a duel on Benno's with Remco from Remco Miniatures. He post only once a month on his blog and I'm assuming that he only paint one figure a month to! But he makes some great things, and isn't feared to make some conversions. The result of the duel can be seen here.

The pictures:







I hope you like him!

I also would like to thank the people that reacted on my call for help in my previous post Paint the City Pink Charity Auction! In this charity auction my Wolsung Lord James Fouley is for sale, and many other pink painted figures! Thanks boys and girls for teh support!

Welcome to my blog!!!!!

  1. Excellent work Peter. Landsknetches I find a pain to paint.

  2. Superb a very characterful figure. I love the look of this style of uniform but agree can be a bit fiddly to paint.

    1. Thanks Dean! It's very easy when the face is sculpted that way! I only use GW Elf Flesh and a flesh wash to reach this result.
