Christmas Napoleon





This is a special figure from Schilling figuren in metal.
It was the 2011 Christmas item, and I must say it was fun painting this!
A cool idea to give Bonaparte Napoleon a Christmas look.



And because next week it's Chrismas, it's today I post this beauty.
Merry Chrismas to you all, and a healty new year!


The figure you can find on this site: www.Schilling-Figuren.de

Sinterklaas


Every year in november all Dutch children go to the harbour to see this old man
ariving to our small Dutch country.
After a long trip form Spain with his steam boat they are all glad to see him back again.
With his helping black friends (zwarte piet) he goes up the roofs every evening night,
and they put candy and gifts in the schoes of the cildren.
On the 5th of december he celebrates his birthday, and he will give everyone gifts.


So I tought it would be fun to make this famous Spanisch friend
and did make him from the Revell set 02575 Prussian Hussars:




First using the knife to cut off a few Prussian details, than remodele with simple materials.
For the mitre I used a part of a lollypopstick, for the clothes and deck I used paper napkins with woodglue.
The staf is made of iron wire, the reinds are from fishing line 0,25 mm







The roof is made of carton strips 1x5 cm, used a handy tool from my GF to rible them.
The walls are from foam, and on top I did use singles from paper.

It was realy fun to make this one, when I can find a good figure for a "zwarte piet" I will make him as well.

let's hope you all like him...

Mykingdomforanos


This time a British friend of Asterix and Obelix.
He is from the album "Asterix and the Brits"


I think it's one of the funniest caracters from this serie.
This because he just gives a smile on my face, he is so funny.
Painted him like the other Asterix serie figures like a comic,
so hard colors and no special efects.
The checker patern on his trouwsers is like I did on the shirt of Cacofonix.
White and two colors of bleu.


And yes I know, in that time there was no thea... but it's a comic!

From this metal serie I got this figure:

Geriatrix's wife


After posting a lot of Gaul caracters from the Asterix range, now it's time for a woman.
This lovely woman is the wife of the oldest member from the Gaul village Geriatrix.
When I see her, I can say this small old man is a very lucky guy!
Folowing the latest fasion, she is looking good for her husband and the other Gauls every day...

Unhygienix


This time I show you the fish seller from the Asterix range: Unhygienix
A friendly guy, unless he is in a fight with his neighbour

                            
Maybee this is the reason why he is having a fish behind his back..

Cacofonix


Another famous character from the Asterix and Obelix range, the musician Cacofonix!
He is at the end of every comic book bind, so he can't play and sing.

 

This guy must have the most difficult shirt I have ever seen, cause of the pattern.
The pattern is two colors bleu and white, and the squares are smaller than a mm.
It was hell painting, but I love the result a lot.

From this metal serie I got this figure:

Happy Wargamer


This figure is specialy made by Alex for members of Benno's forum who did visit FIGZ 2011.
For me as Benno's dad its extra fun to see his name on the pedestal,
so it was right away clear for me to paint the text gold.



After painting this guy, I am sure to do a knight made by Alex in the future, the details are suberb, and it was realy fun to paint. The only thing what was hard to do was the dice, stupid I know...
Alex is in my eyes a master sculpter, and I would like to thank him for making this figure for us.


More painted Happy Wargames you can find on Benno's Forum 
and personal I hope more will folow.

Man stuck in Pillory

This was a very small project, the base is a 1 eurocent coin
the figure is made of metal and comes in 2 parts,
one is the pillory with head and hands, and the other part is his body.

It is a single figure bought at Crises Antwerp 2010 from Magister Militum i believe...
real fun to paint, I recommend it to everyone!
