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.

Putting all the dioramas together

Recently, I have purchased a track and plug system which gives some flexibility in placing the plugs anywhere along the electrical track. This is a neat solution to an otherwise various extension cords solution. The track system is fitted horizontally and hidden behind the sofa. All the wires drop vertically.

I will be installing more of these track and plug systems on other walls. I want the flexibility to move my lighted dioramas around the house. I expect to do more of these dioramas to create thematic displays.

Belated Happy New Year 2016

According to the website stats, there was a huge increase of visitors from Russia on New Year day. Either there are a lot of Russian flats enthusiasts or there's a lot of internet traffic. Must be cold up there. My best regards to all of you.

I'll try to do more updates on my flats this year.
