Tres Riches de Heures Duc de Berry

I have understood the problem of getting to my blogs as being that of using the wrong web browser.

I have just switched over to using Mozilla Firefox.

I am starting to get back into the zinfiguren.

I have finished painting this delightful set by W Hafer, due in no small part to encouragement from another enthusiast. I have generally lightened the tonality of the colours and added more light and shading to bring out the subtlety of the engraved details.

Problems updating on this blog

Hi all,

I am experiencing a problem of getting into my blogs to update with new postings. I think it is due to some technical issue which many other bloggers are also facing, perhaps due to specific web browsers? I normally use a standard laptop where most of my pics are and update on Googlechrome.

I am able to update briefly now because I am using an IPad and am on Safari browser.

In the event that I am unable to further update on this blog, I will just create a new blog with a similar sounding name 'Defining A Zinnfiguren Collection  The Next Chapter'.

So see you all soon.

Puppeteer in 54mm 2

I have re-selected this piece for further painting.

The Sacre 2

I continue to sift through the many sets awaiting completion. These are some of the remaining figures to be painted. For the Sacre, I am painting two sets in parallel.

Starting to work more on this piece. Glorious Empires have a painted example on their website which clarifies some details on this piece.

Getting back into the zinn of things 2

I started to doodle on some of the figures, just to get back into the swing of painting these zinnfiguren.

 Mostly dark browns and washes added.

I added some shadows and highlights to the two zulus on the left.

Getting back in the zinn of things

Its been a while since I was active on this blog, spending most of the time and effort on ronde-bosse figures.

I took out a box marked miscellaneous and came across these three items.
