Jean Höfler Figures 5 and 6

Just a small post to let you know that I'm still busy. Last week the doctor gave me green light to go back to work. So next Monday, after almost four months they will see me back at the office! For that reason I'm doing everything to clean up my painting desk, and the only thing I'm doing now is painting and basing things. I know when I'm back at work, the first days there will be not much time to paint, but maybe some more time to post things. So you can look forward to a lot of painted stuff!
Today I present the next two figures of the Jean Höfler range I've painted. The first one is painted in random colors and the second one could be an old confederate soldier. These figures are a real joy to paint when you're not in the mood for painting little details! And you can give them almost all colors whatever you want. More figures will follow in the future! In the mean time enjoy these two!

Welcome to my blog!!!!!

Peter Pig Pirates Set 1 Unarmed Pirates

First a little announcement. I updated my previous post about the FIGZ meeting with some links to more pictures of the event. I also have to clear out that I was at home and not at the meeting. The pictures were send to me so I could post them on the forum to let the other members see what was going on in Arnhem. (FIGZ 2016 Pictures)
So now back to the title of this post. You all know that the Wargaming Girl, Tamsin sended me some Peter Pig Pirates that I won in the Give Away she has done. As I am a very curious person I wanted to know what it is to paint 15 mm figures. And with the good advice (haha!) I had in the comments of that post I started with the following three figures. In every bag there are eight figures in three different poses.
I must say it worked extremely well. I thought that I would not see what I'm doing on these figures, but I could see it. I painted them just like I do with my 20 mm figures (thanks Sander!). White basecoat, flesh parts and then adding different colors and washes (and some drybrushing). Well enough blabla, here are the pictures!
The three poses of this set.

Forgot to paint the belt, but that is fixed now!

Great sculpted figures!

All three are yelling!

Green finger is fixed!

This jacket wasn't easy, because I didn't know how to paint it!
I decided he's wearing a stolen jacket from a French Officer!

And he took the wallet to!
The close ups of the figures was good to see the errors I made. I fixed them all and now they are waiting in a box for some more friends. I hope I can paint some more in between of the other figures I'm working on!
Thanks again Tamsin. A new world of figures has opened their doors for me. I'm allready making a list for the CRISIS in Antwerp, this November, to buy some more sets. For example the guns and some British.
Thanks for looking and if you have some more advice for painting this figures, just let it come! I will read them with big interest!
