Caesar Dwarf 1/10 and Christmas teaser

My good friend Pascal is busy with a Hobbit month on his blog. I thought, I give him support and here is one of the ten dwarfs of this set I want to paint. I know they are with 13 in the book, so I might do some conversion to get them complete.

As you all know between dwarfs they don't talk about tribes, but about shields. As this one has no shield, I painted him with green trousers, so he's a member of the green shields.

The pictures:

And I promised you a Christmas teaser! Well here it is. Wich historical person will ride this:

I need new trousers!

Again this is a figure sculpted by my good friend Alex. It's a "Landsknecht" with a kaketoe on his arm and a hole in his pants!  As you see I swichted colours on left and right side. I've seen this on pictures of this period and thought it would be a nice idea. This time the figure wasn't that easy to paint. There were a lot of hidden details and not easy to reach with the brush. Some parts I had to repaint because I forgot to paint the lower parts.But finally I managed and the result you can see here.

The occasion to paint this figure came by having a duel on Benno's with Remco from Remco Miniatures. He post only once a month on his blog and I'm assuming that he only paint one figure a month to! But he makes some great things, and isn't feared to make some conversions. The result of the duel can be seen here.

The pictures:

I hope you like him!

I also would like to thank the people that reacted on my call for help in my previous post Paint the City Pink Charity Auction! In this charity auction my Wolsung Lord James Fouley is for sale, and many other pink painted figures! Thanks boys and girls for teh support!

You can find all the information on the Tales of a Tabletop Skirmisher Blog from Ian. Because of the good cause I would like to ask that you could make some advertising on your blogs, by putting up a link. Or maybe you're interested in a figure yourself and place a bid. The more people that see this, the more chances their are to raise money for this good cause! Thank you for your help!

Hat 8182 Natal Native Horse

Time is going fast and I realised that it has been a week that I posted something. But I also missed some things. When I was painting Wolsung Lord James Fouley, I passed the 40.000 hits. So a big thank you to you all for helping me reaching this milestone!

And last week when I posted that award, I saw to late that it was my post one hundred. So I celebrated that with....... a cup of coffee and a cookie! :-D My naughty followers (and I have some!) were thinking something else! ;-) But I couldn't have reached this number without the help, comments and fun of you all! Thank you for the support through the first hundred posts!

Speaking about that award, I had a fourth nomination from Piotr Henryk Nowacki from Revolutionaries blog. A blog about Ancient Historic 28 mm and 1/72 miniatures! Have a visit at his blog and be amazed!

Now back to the post title. Natal Native Horse from Hat is a very fine set, wich painted very easy. Not to much colours and details, but the result may be seen. A review of them can be read here on PSR.

Here are the pictures:

Again a nice addition to my Zulu War figures. I hope you like them!
