Slaves Tracker

As you can see another Asterix chewing gum figure from the seventies.
Like the others he is 35mm high, a plastic figure.
This time I gave color to the man all slaves hate.

Even if he doesn't look happy, he is in charge of several slaves!
Using his whip he will give his commands to them.

Now just get som slaves to make him smile agiain.

Roman stone carver

Unfortunately I have a lot figures received, 
so I'm going to bother you probably the next time with a lot of painted copies.....

Do you recognize them, they where a gift at the chewing gum (1970-1975)

I remember in the store we all did feel the package if Obelix was in it.

And now years later I paint the guys, and they look so different

This man must be strong, he wears 3 stone plateaus.
and still has time to wave.

I hope you like him!

Once again I did paint Abraracourcix, the chief of the small village at the coast.
Because I run out of the 28mm metal figures, I tought back at the time
I was a joung boy, in that time (around 1970 - 1975)
you could buy chewing gum wit a plastic Asterix figure

These figures are plastic, scale around 35mm, and available in various colors.
For the older readers this must bring back memories!
So now I ask everyone to look at there attic.
And I recieved from friends the first numbers.

Despite being less detailed, these are fun to paint.
And giving these figures colors, makes a big difference

So a new set of guys are ready to be painted at my paintdesk!
I hope you like this as much as I do!

And if you have any of these figures lying around, feel free to send them to me!

And again a Romain solder from the Asterix and Obelix comics.
This time it is Cadaverus, a not to smart guy..

The pose of this figure is so funny, seems he is longing to a vacation.

The figure is like the others I have posted before, made from metal
and in a 28mm schale, a real pleasure to paint!

From this metal serie I got this figure:

To Be or not To Be

The special figure for FIGZ 2013!!!

As most of you know, I organize once a year the small event FIGZ
to promote this hobby in the Netherlands.
I am proud to say that my Rusian friend Alex made again
a amazing figure in our theme "Game"
a real colectors item, cause only 50 are made!

So I had to paint this guy fast, cause I wanted to show him at the FIGZ shop.
Because of the timelimit, I personal am not pleased by the result.
The text "Bennos figures" had turned out unreadable, but the FIGZ sides turned out well

But it was the first of the only 50 who was painted.
And like the happy wargamer again a suberb figure to paint.
The sculpt of this 1/72 figure is amazing, thanks Alex!

Hope you like it, and will see U at the next FIGZ!

Monk with bible

This monk is from a set of five and I bought it at Crisis Antwerpen.
A verry good sculped metal figure in 28mm scale

I have given the holy book golden pages, this is not well reflected on the pictures.
But the effect was stunning and better than I could hope for.

Maybe in the future I'll make a small vignette of the 5 together.

The name of the producer of this set I don't know
so if someone knows it I can edit this post and link to
their website.

Johan van Valckenburgh

This figure of Johan van Valckenburg was the special figure of "Hamburger Tactica 2013"
Unfortunaly I couldn't go there, so I asked my friend Thomas to buy me on.
The reason is clear, its a (old) famous Dutch man, and since I am Dutch...
Thomas did sent it to me as a gift, so a even bigger suprise for me! Thanks again Thomas!

Beside the figure there is also a measuring instrument

As you can see in the unpainted version, it's a metal figure.

Johan van Valckenburgh was a Dutch ingineer who lived 1575-1625
He buid some fortresses in Germany where he spend the most of his live.
His master was engineer Johan van Rijswijck, 
both served for the Dutch prince Mauritz van Oranje

It was fun painting this compatriot.

Model is sculped by Frank Gemershaus specialy for Tactica fair

This time a Romain officer from the Asterixs comics....
To make him a bit more important, I did use copper on him.

The figure is like the others I have posted before, made from metal
and in a 28mm schale, a real pleasure to paint!

From this metal serie I got this figure:

Old Professor

I found this figure at the Crisis fair in Antwerpen last year.
It's from a set of 3 scientists, heads came separately.
Never seen the set before, this set is from Crooked Dice.

The most difficult was the laboratory bottle,
and I am still not happy with that!

The figure is 32 mm high, so better for my eye, hahaha.
