Amelia Earhart Christmas version



Today I write this post on X-mas day
to wish all my readers a happy christmas!

And as you can see I painted Amelia Earhart for this occasion.
This is a 28 mm figure from Belt Fed Gaming
Got it on Crisis 2015 from my good friend Peter.
We wanted to do a duel on Bennos figures forum with her!


A metal figure and really fun to paint!
But because it was a december duel I thought to do her different..
No flight jacket brown, but Santa red and white...
The fun part was, Peter had exactly the same idea, hahahaha


Unfortunately I lost the duel even with her glossy scarf 
what is in the picture not reflected right..


Hope you like this figure, I sure do!!!

Jean-Baptiste De Coster


This month another figure:
Jean-Baptiste De Coster


As you can see, the special figure of Crisis Antwerp 2015!!!
The exhibition I went to like every year!
Each visitor gets such a great figure.

It is a metal figure, here a picture from the master:


I did some research what colors to use, 
but there is not much info
about this man on the internet.


So I took the colors like the cloths they had in those years.
Not very colorful, I know...


Jean Baptist De Coster,  a farmer and innkeeper.
When Napoleon used his inn "La Belle Alliance"
he was forced to be the personal guide of Napoleon.
Afraid of the shots, he was was strapped to a horse.
Some say the French lost because of his bad french.


But after the war, he became a rich man.
As a guide over the battlefield, he ask a lot of money.
In twelve years it was around 300.000 francs!

Romain soldier


For my future diorama I need a whole bunch of Roman soldiers,
I have decided to paint them all a bit different.


As you can see I did on this one the leather parts under his amor,
also with metallic paint, just because it looks nice.


These Romans are so nice to paint, I hope to find more...
(I need more, so if you got one somewhere.....)

And again a monthly post,
let's hope your'e not sick
of all the Asterix figures
from the bubblegum range!

Decanus


And another Romain officer comes a life...


This guy has the nice task to sent the legionairs to the Gauls...
And it looks he doesn't know who is is up against...
He looks so happy, maybe he is just promoted?


Another nice figure, what was a joy to paint.
The details look perfect with some colors on it...


I did use the colors like in the Asterix albums, with a little bit of my own fantasy.
But he looks much nicer than the yellow figure he was before:


And yes, he is also from the Asterix bubblegum range from the '70.
Sorry, but I just love them...
So more will follow!

Cleopatra's Taster


From the Asterix comic album "Asterix and Cleopatra":
this month the food taster himself!


He isn't what I got in mind, the paintjob is not to my satisfaction.
And I am not sure about his tongue as well.
But he will look good between the others in my future project!


Anyhow he looks quite like on the original from the comic book:


This guy was green before I painted him,
and yes also from the bubble gum Asterix range from the 70ths

Caius Spiritus


This month the Roman Governor in Londinium
called Caius Spiritus
from the album Asterix in Great Britan

his goal is to stop the magic drink
get in to the UK


The figure is full of detail and fun to paint I must say
As you already know, also from the bubblegum series from the '70


Before painting, this guy was all bleu.
Hope you like him!!!

Another Gaul


This month again a Asterix figure from the bubblegum range.
yeah I know.. again...
but for making a (long term) diorama I just need more...


I did pick out this one, and to be honest I really don't know who he is.



So I gave him a few colors who will be wrong I am for sure...


But he will fit with the others, so thats fine by me.

Asterix


This month one of the main figures of the comic book Asterx & Obelix
Yes it is me.... 



The small smart guy, with his bottle powerdrink.
We all know this little guy I presume.


This is also one of the plastic '70 Bubblegumseries figures.
Before panting this guy, he was a red one.


And putting some paint on him, also Asterix came to life!
Lets hope you like him!
