Hat 8073 Russian Light Infantry

Another Napoleonic set this time. A very nice set I must say. It comes with eight poses, one officer and seven troop figures. They are very nice sculpted and painted up very easy. A complete review of this set can be seen on Plastic Soldier Review.

As allways I started painting these figures with a white undercoat. Then I did the flesh parts with Games Workshop (GW) Elf Flesh and GW Ogryn Flesh Wash. Next was the uniform, here I used Revell (R) Sea Green. To tone down the green I gave it a wash with GW Gryphonne Sepia. The blanket is done with GW Vermin Brown. All black parts are done with R Tar Black and the red parts with GW Blood Red. The gun is painted with R Brown and GW Boltgun Metal with a GW Devlan Mud Wash over it. Buttons are painted with GW Shining Gold. The cocarde on the helmet is done GW Echanted Blue, GW Tin Blitz, GW Blood Red, R White and GW Shining Gold. I hope this will help someone who want to paint this figures to.

I did enough talking, I better show you the pictures.


I hope you like them!

Making a tree!

A short post just to let you know that I'm still busy with some things. Making a tree, well not complete. I cheated a little bit. I think you all know those little painted houses and figures to build a Christmas village. Well they have also a nice range of trees. One kind of tree I allready used in my Will this come to good end??? post in December last year. Now I used another one.

I show you what I did with some pictures.

This is the kind of tree I'm talking about.
It's made of iron wire and covered with paper.

Here I've painted it with dark brown.

Then some glue and some clump-foliage.
Et voila, finished.
Now you could ask me what my plans are with this tree, but I won't tell you. Be patient and keep watching.

Hope you like it!

Currently painting: Vikings, medievals and zulu's.

Atlantic Cristians & Big Thank You!

This is a post in two parts. I hope you like them both.

Part 1: Atlantic Cristians

After my post "Do the Chain Rock" I decided to paint the rest of, let's call them, victims. These goup of figures was again a joy to paint. Only the little one gave some trouble, he couldn't sit still, but I managed.

Enjoy the pictures!

I'm very happy how the faces came out.

Are they cheering or yelling for the Rockers?

Part 2: 20.000 Pageviews!

Over 20.000 pageviews and this after a year and 3 days when I started this blog. It gives courage to go on!
