Cheers

 


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!

Asterix the Legionary

 


And this month again a Asterix figure...
or a Roman soldier, you may say ...


inspired by the album Asterix the Legionary


I took one of the many Asterix figures,
one without the feathers on his helmet.



The sword and the clothes I cut away...


And from a paper clip with some milliput I made a few spears.


Then I made his armor and helmet out of cardboard. 
The pieces of clothing from some toilet paper soaked with PVA glue.


Finally drilled a hole in his hand, and placed the spear there,
reinforced with some PVA glue.


Then a coat of primer on top, and ready to paint ...


And that's how you turn a famous Gaul into a Roman soldier...


I thought it was a nice challenge,
and you understand that Obelix is
now also coming in his army uniform.

It will be very nice to see those two among the hundreds of Romans!


Avé friends, thank you for visiting!

Flying Witch


Years ago the special figure of FIGZ 
was this awesome flying witch with her cat.


Sculped by my good friend Alex.


Since she is flying, I had to present her differently. 
I chose confirmation through her back.


After I had drilled the hole and glued a paper clip into it,
I could start painting.


I opted for a purple version, supplemented with some pink. 
Of course the cat is black.


It had been a while since I had painted 20mm,
it was fun to do (although I really prefer the larger scale)


For the presentation I had opted for a deep photo frame,
I glued a haloween picture on the back wall.


I made the frame black, so that it gives the right depth and atmosphere.


When the frame was ready, it was time to add the witch.
(the bumps will disappear later)


Determine the right place and start drilling ...


During this execution, of course the broom broke.
Yes the figure is very vulnerable. 
After that was glued again, this is the end result.


I made this for my girlfriend with whom I have been together for 13 years today. 
She loves witches and has been looking forward to 
the painted version of this witch for a long time.
