While I'm working on the Arnhem Group Build Project I will show some figures I painted in the almost one year I wasn't actice at Blogger.
This was the Crisis 2011 figure. He is best known for his work in cartography, in particular the world map of 1569 based on a new projection which represented sailing courses of constant bearing as straight lines. He was the first to use the term "atlas" for a collection of maps.

I painted this figure for the painting competition on 2015 FIGZ meeting. I won third price with it! Just a joke because there were only two prizes to win!
It was a joy to paint this figure. A bit bigger as my normal 20 mm figures, as this is a 28 mm figure, and for that reason a bit more difficult because of the details that are better visible. The painting scheme is taken from a picture I found somewhere on the WWW. The brown globe should be historical correct as can be seen in the Wiki link.
I hope you like him.
