CRISIS 2013 Purchases

Well as promised here is my little list of purchases I've made at CRISIS this year. I always start with a plan when I go to a convention. I make a small list of the things I'm really after. But as always that are dreams. And as always you leave the place with more things that were on the list.

Let's start with the things that were on that list:

First I went to the stand of Ulrike and Jörg Schilling from Schilling Figuren. They had some new things, and I wanted them in myy collection.

First there was this nice "Ox Wagon".


Then they have a nice range of Indians.

Bear attack!

Buffalo hunt set 1!

Buffalo hunt set 2!
All these figures are sculpted by Toma. Toma's Minis World is his blog and I can recommend a visit to his blog. He has made some awesome diorama's!

Next thing on my list was this (not teasing you Fran!):

Brushes 10/0 and hopefully a good goldpaint this time!
The brushes are for painting those 6 mm figures from Ian!

And then the walk around starts, and the next things were yelling to me: "Buy me!" So here is the result:

Hasegawa Mercedes Benz G4.

Bought it for 5 euro at the bring and sell stands.

Zvezda Siege Machines Set 1! Again 5 euro!

Zvezda Siege Machines Set 2! Same price!

I just love this set! Great figures!

And then I bought some little plastic bags with figures from a second hand shop:

This all for 3,5 euro! Now look what was in it!
I give a little more attention to the bag with the brown figures!

All little pieces from Atlantic, nice to make some scenery!

25 Esci Muslim Warriors!

Some Modern Paratroopers from Atlantic! I have these already!
But they werent the main reason I bought this bag.

1. From the Gold rush set from Atlantic
2. From the Kit Carson set from Atlantic
3. From the Buffalo Bill set from Atlantic

This was the main reason I bought the bag!
The three top rows and the last row of figures
are from the Sioux Camp set of Atlantic.
Never reissued and very rare!

Sitting Bull and a squaw cleaning a buffalo skin!

Top row: A squaw making dinner and a warrior cutting some wood.
Bottom row: A squaw  from the Apache Camp from Atlantic.

Warriors returning from hunt.
Warrior with horse.
With these last figures from Atlantic I was very pleased. Pity they missed some poses as you can see here.

That was it folks!

I also want to welcome a new follower:
- Jur from Rear Guard Action

Welcome to my blog!!!!!

  17. The figures are not Schilling, but Toma miniatures. Available from different sources. I have them in my collection too, they fit very nice with other 1/72 ones.
