Governor's daughter


This month a nice lady I found at Crisis in Antwerp last year.


This figure is sold as a resin model.




She is from a pirate range by Black Scorpion Miniatures.
Named Governor's daughter.


I did painted her Purple and Pink
and did highlight the dress with silver
just to give it a more glamor effect.
Unfortunately it doesn't show well on the pictures.


A well sculpted figure, a nice painting job.


Hope you like her, on thing is for sure..
It was again something different to paint!

Lord Knownothing


this month a post about my lost duel...


My good friend Peter did challenge me for a duel
on Bennos figures forum when we met at FIGZ.
Kristina did pick out this Asterix British figure. 


I tough to paint it a little bit different as I usual do.
Double colors on the shoes, a bit of effect in the hair,
and colors in a different combination.


Gave it the name: Lord Knownothing.
Turned out nice, I tought....


But I got only 8 from the 19 votes...

But it was fun to do, and Peter did deserve to win.
See the duel Here

Hopefully next time more votes for the duel,
cause only 19 voters is not the dueling fun I would like to see.

Pinokkio


This month it was a close call, but I made it.
A well known figure I found on internet.


Yeah it is the guy who does get a larger nose when he doesn't speak the truth..
Pinokkio


Today, the last day of the month I did finish him right on time...
but making the photo's, I saw I forgot his gloves. AHRRR...


So here he is with gloves, and does he like it?


His nose doesn't grow, so I think so!


Not much detail work, and painted the same comic style
as my Asterix figures


The figure was one color plastic, I guess also from the 70ths
Personal I don't know where its from...




well that's all folks for this month, back to the figures who
have more my interest...
It was fun to paint something different, but to be honnest
it wasn't my favorite figure to paint!

Ready in time.... #150


Just in time, 2 weeks before FIGZ
there was a small party on my painting desk.


I finished painting another Romain solder, clean up my brush,
and when I looked back, the solder was holding a balloon!
He was really happy to be number 150!


Okay, I can't tell much about this guy,
only that my goal is achieved in time!


Here a small overview of all 150 Romain Solders


And if you look good, you can fiend number 150


See....

Thats all folks for this month, now it's time to put some energy
into organizing FIGZ in Arnhem.

Next goal will be 200 for FIGZ 2019...
Still looking for more Romains!

These figures are from the chewing gum range 
in the seventies, long agoo!

Barbarossa


This month I painted a figure I got years ago.


It is from the Turkish brand "Altar", sculptor Uhrin Zsolt.
And look at the nice box it is sold!


And what a great sculpt it is, I really like it a lot.
I was afraid with my painting skills to start painting it.


But I gave it his colors, different like the box.
And am quite happy with the way he turned out.


The pictures don't give a good view, but it's the best I can show.
But in real he looks much better.


About Barbarossa there is on the box
a explanation, one side in Turkish,
on the other side in English:


But you can find also info here on Wikipedia.

Seems he was a sort of Turkish pirate,
so I even learned something today!

Hope you liked it, tried to show you something different.
Now back to my Romains, goal 150 before FIGZ...

Willy


This month I didn't have enough time to paint.
So I put up a figure I painted some time ago.


To be honest, this figure I totally dislike,
I got it from a friend along the Asterix figures.
And he it's sometime fun to paint something else!


It's the best friend Willy of Maya who I painted last year.



The only thing I like are the wings.
A bit of highlight with silver makes them look much better.


Like the Asterix range these figures are from one color plastic.


Well back to paint some Romains again...
My goal is 150 for FIGZ 2018...
