Caesar H036 WWII Chinese Army

I had some figures of this set lying around, but not enough, and with the help of a friend at Benno's Figures Forum, who sended me some extra figures so I could make three bases with these figures. This set of figures doesn't have so much details, so they painted very easely. Not all poses ofthem are presented because I didn't have them. Nevertheless this is a nice mix. 

I hope you like them.


Thanks for watching and stay safe!

Model on!

Infra at work!

This work is something I made last year as a farewell gift for my collegues I worked so many years with. First it was my intention to make it as a prize for the best employe of the year, but then I thought they deserve it all and gave it to the chief asking him to give it a good place. One day I will check it if he has done that!

The reason I post this so late is because I used the pictures for the painting competition on Benno's Figures Forum with a fourth place as result. The figures I used are from the Revell (old Accurate) 02564 Confederate Pioneers which can be seen here on Plastic Soldier Review. The uniforms are painted light blue because we wore this as worksuits most of the time.

Infra stands for "Infrastructure". We did maintenance on buildings, roofs, roads, runways and so on. And most of the time we had more work as people to fix all the problems. But we kept on going and they still do! And now and then we were also soldiers!

So enough blabla, let me show you the pictures.

I hope you like them. And to my old collegues , I would like to thank you all for the many years we worked together. It was an honour! Thank you!

Revell 2566 Imperial Artillery 30YW

Just to show that I am still painting figures some officers of the Revell 2566 Imerial Atillery 30YW. I must confess that I didn't know that this were officers and that their pikes are to fire their guns. This information I got from my friend Steve at Benno's Figures Forum in this topic: Thirthy Years War Project.

Reason that I show them is that I panted and based them and I can't change them anymore (I'm to lazy for that and I got more of them!). For painting I tried to follow the colors on the boxart.

I hope you like them. More information on this set can be found on the link above which brings you to the Plastic Soldier Review page.

Model on and stay healthy!

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
