And again a post about books..
But not a Asterix figure this time..

When I saw this figure on the website of Speira Miniatures
it was a must-have immediately, what a fantastic pose.
This figure is printed 3-D in resin, in a great quality.

This guy doesn't look happy, maybe he is still thinking about his last exciting book.

I made his shirt in a striped version, quite a challenge.

I kept the books a bit colorful, I guess these looked a bit more luxurious originally.

I hope you like him too.

Obelix with books


This month I was inspired by this Obelix
that you can buy as a small statue.

Because in my search for the Roman soldiers I found quite 
a few double figures, including this Obelix... Perfect!

I googled all the album covers and formatted them in excel. 
Best job I say...

Unfortunately the printer couldn't handle the small print, 
so I decided to make some thicker books out of it.

After pasting, the cutting of the books began.

And when all the books were ready,
the now painted Obelix could look at them.

The books were then glued together, 
and because they are so thick I had some left over to make a base.

The base got its firmness with a lot of glue.

And so this figure with a whole stack of books was born.

on a pile of books, with a pile of books.

Here you can see how messy the books are stacked.

On the back of the base I turned a book over, of course, all albums are on it.

And even though I'm going to make it again with thinner books, 
I'm very happy with the end result.

I hope you liked it too, thanks for visiting!

This month a cool dwarf figure,
with a beer mug in his hand.

I tried to paint it as colorful as I could.
And also not the same colors as my opponent, 
yes because this figure also participated in a duel.

And like always I lost again (with 7 votes).
But it was fun, and I liked my result.

My opponent was my bonus son, who also painted him great, orange hair
and a nice red nose makes the figure even more powerful in my opinion. 
A well deserved winner.

I had added a ring as a secret weapon, with a drop of PVA glue.
A nice little detail.

also a nice little detail on his shoulder..

The figure is from Reeper Bones, a plastic figure with a low price

And we both won a medal for participating on our duel.
Funny detail is that the color mug confirmed the outcome in advance.
How nice is that!

It was fun again, now back to my Romains!
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Action Woman

It's not Action man, but Action Woman...
This month a figure with a small personal (fun) touch added.

This nice figure is from Bad Squiddo Games
called Mss. June, so I decided to paint her for June.
Sculpted by Alan Marsh

When I did prime her, I took another close look at her.
And I saw like something was missing in her hand.

So I drilled a hole and put a piece of a paperclip in it.

With Green stuff I made her a bag!

I just have given my wife a gnome for fun
with bags of a favorite store here in the Netherlands.
This gave me the idea to make a typical Dutch woman.
With a bag of her favorite store: Action
This store has about 400 shops in NL and 1.700 in the EU
and is grows every year, so you can call this a succes.

She looks very happy because she bought a lot very cheap

it was exciting to get the letters in the right size on the bag


the result was not disappointing, painted freehand

many will recognize this street scene

this made it extra fun, hope you like it as well!
