another (special) Romain solder

This month one of the regulair painted figures.
For those who know me, this is my real painting fun...

But in this case a little bit different then the others,
cause this guy had a broken arm when I got him.
On the left you see the original, and next to him
on the right you can see that I made his arm,
but in a slight different position

Of course I painted him in the famous colors 
as I do with all of these solders

And if you didn't knew, you would not see the difference

And so I reached now the 500+ who had a day out
last weekend at a show in Lingen (Germany)
next goal 600....

I must say they are harder to count now, LOL

But the good news is, I can do something
with the broken solders as well...

That's all folks, thanks for your visit!

Dancing girl

And another figure from Reeper Bones
this month, a dancing girl.

A nice figure it is, and I did try to give her a eastern look.
But the pictures arn't so good to see what I did try

with a gold drybrush I made the dress and shawl
looking a bit more glossy.

As you know I am not a master painter
but hope you still like her!

Dwarf Thief

This month another figure
from the Reaper Bones Dark Heaven range

I always look for a non violent figure,
this one had more guns than I thought.

Just for fun, I've planned to use only the colors
of the Asterix Roman soldiers

Not really a super figure, but another 1 ready this month...

Now back to my Romans

X-mas girl

Like every year in december
this is my december duel entry in X-mas style

And like most of the times I lost
My opponent had painted her as a Bavarian beer lady, 
really a great job like she walked out of the Ocktoberfest!

But for me it was another Christmas entry
and also my december post on my blog as well

This figure is from Reaper Miniatures
but I missed some details what could have made her better

She is made from metal, the arm with cup had to be glued
The cup was decorates with a dear (Rudolph)

And I must say some parts where extra fun to paint
but for me it was also hard to do it right

Since X-mas is over, and we are getting into 2023
Let's end with the best wishes!

 This is my lovely wife Angélique

as you can see she loves squirrels
thats is why she loves to visit my house hahaha

I gave the squirrel a white breast, 
I think those are the nicest ones

this figurine has been digitally composed especially for me

the figure is a 3D print I got from Jurrien
together with a figure of myself
which I already showed in June

I tried to make her as I know her with a mixed shirt,
bleu jeans and fancy shoes

I am happy with the result
and love her as much  like the original

Just look how happy she is!
Arent we a cool couple together.

Thanks for watching, hope to see you next month again

Chop some wood

This month an old figure from Atlantic set 1012 Sioux camp
of an Indian choping trees

My Belgian friend Peter sent me this one 
with some other non-violent figures from this range

Although I wasn't really in the mood 
to paint a figure this month, it looks quite nice.

Hopefully he has enough wood to communicate 

Thank you for visiting, see you next month

Dwarf Wizard

This month another wizard.
The main problem looking for non violent,
you get a lot of wizards as result.

This figure is from the Bones Miniatures range
Dark heaven.

His pose is nice, relax with a pipe in his hand.

Painting him I had some problems with my paint.
It was to watery, and took a long time to dry.

But he came out well, the stick in his other hand I painted
red, wit some yellow and gold. 
A choice I guess is a bit different as usual.

Also this head turned out well.

Thanks for watching,
Hope you like him!
