Oh - and thanks to Remco and Benno. FIGZ might be a smaller event then others, but it's always nice to be there. I'm already looking forward for meeting you guys at the ISSC show in Heiden - and you can already count me in for FIGZ 2015.
|MABO at work|
|Who said it would be an easy way?|
|The Cambrai diorama gets more impressive every time I see it.|
I also got some great figures from Francesco - the beautiful Marins de la Garde and the brand new skirmishing Austrian hussars. Really fine sculpted stuff. I'm going to show them to you as soon as I'm done with painting them.
Oh - and of course there were competitions again. My multi figure dio (which will later be seen here because I made a work-in-progress photo report) lost. Again. But in fact, the competitors were too good again. I lost against a 16*16 men phalanx made by Konrad...
The figure is a Guard Chasseur a cheval from the old Revell set, a figure that Peter from http://peterscave.blogspot.de/ send me quite a while ago. I simply wanted to paint that one for no other reason then the fun of it and it stood in my cabinet for nearly a year. Very easy to paint, very easy to place details - a lovely figure. Thanks very much for it, Peter - you sent me a real matchwinner.
Well - there's more to follow in the next weeks. I have to add another display of Pre-Bardin soldiers and to force myself to create a diorama for all these Westphalians.
