Asterix and the Vikings - Unknown figure

Last day of the month and here is a quick post. When I started painting this figure I didn't realise that this figure didn't exist in the comic book, but a figure from the cartoon movie. Never seen it and so I don't know his name. And that's why in top title he is marked as unknown. If someone can tell me his name I would be grateful.

The figure came out of an surprise egg long time ago. Now I repainted him so he doesn't look that glossy anymore. I tried to keep the same colors as he came with. I have a few more of this range and I will try to repaint them some day.

Enjoy the pictures.





The whole set.

I hope you like him!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

 At this time of the year I always try to paint a figure in a special way, Santa's way. This time it's a figure from the American Civil War, painted as a drummer of the Christmas regiment. I don't now from which manufacturer this figure is, so if someone recognize the figure, please let me know.



I hope you like him and I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a good and healthy New year! Next year a lot more painted figures!

Timpo 9506 Arabs

It took me some time, but finally I could finish these Arabian warriors from Timpo. This was something new for me because I only used a wash for the skin and the gun. All other parts are painted from dark to light, by using different colors or adding a bit of white. I like the end result also after seeing the pictures. I will for sure use this technique on more figures.

I must say that these figures have very nice details. And the sculpting of the clothes helpt a lot to find out what had to be dark and what to be light. As said the brand is Timpo and the figures are 54mm high. Pity that there are only four poses. A few more would have been better.

And now I let the pictures speak for themselves.











I hope you like them, and stay save and healthy!

Now I have to paint someTimpo Foreign Legion as their opponents.

Model on!

Caesar F109 Orc Warriors #01

Next two figures of this set. This time I used for the big chief of this set a different skin tone. It's Kislev Flesh from Games Workshop, with a sepia wash. I really like the final result, but I hink that I will do something on the eyes. Maybe not red like I did for the green skin painted figures of this set. Must have a look at that later.

Here are the pictures. I hope you like them.





I also add the first four I've painted from this set. I had a message that it wasn't possible to post comments but that is fixed now. I had some troubles with some spammers so I blocked everything. And now it seems to be working well. Previous post was: Orctober

Orctober!

I finally made it to paint 4 Orcs for this month. I've been painting a lot of figures the past year but didn't find the time to make decent pictures and post them here. Also because the figures that are painted are mostly for a bigger project that I would like to end next year June.

The Orcs here are painted a bit in the same style as I painted my other Orcs. These are to join the Orctober fest on Bennos Figures Forum. I hope you like them.











Hopefully my next post will follow soon!

Greetings Peter!

Santa's Gold Mine!

Just a small post today, with a message:

Merry Christmas to all of you!


This little work I made in 2017 for one of the painting competitions on Bennos Figures Forum. As it was almost Christmas when this competition took place, I thought a seasons figures would do nice. Well it didn't but I didn't care because it was fun making this.

The figure and the lorry are from Wendy's Miniatures, and okay this wasn't a Santa Dwarf before I painted him that way. Still I think that he looks nice in his new costume. Most of the diorama is scratchbuilt, for example the rails are from a chewing gum box.








I hope you like him! See you all next year, hopefully with a few more posts! So I wish you all:

A Happy New Year!

Dragon LVT-(A)4 WIP 002

Today I present step 3 and 4 from this work in progress. It has been a while but I really have been busy with this project. Not as busy as I would like but I can't change that anymore.

As you can see I'm still working in the base color of this tank and I haven't paiinted one of the details yet, except for the wheels. Later on this project I will use some bottles of AK, which I bought at FIGZ Arnhem this year, after following a workshop. And on the latest CRISIS, I bouoght some more.

Step three


This is a part of the upper hull with lots of tiny pieces to at. I lost some on the floor, because they were to tiny for me. I work a bit different since then. Now I add a little piece of blue tape to the part before I cut it from the sprue. Works fine for me, and when it falls of the table, I'm able to find it back!


Pictures are a bit blurry, but that's because I used my old camera. Next time I will use my other one again.

Step four



Second part of the upper hull.



Next picture is what is called a dry fitting. Just to see how it looks so far. Glueing is for later.

Paints used so far:

- Revell 46 Nato olive
- Revell 09 Anthracite

Here are also some pictures of the figures that will join this tank. One has his foot broken, but he insisted to stay in the show. Inside the tank you will not see that.





See you all in the next episode.
