3/5 ! (the 2 others are waiting that I accept to finish them .. just gluing the parts ! )
They still don't have names or functions but they will have !
Manufacturer : Thomas Förstmann , available here : Kay FÜRMANN Miniatures
I've tried to take some pictures with figures for the scale ...
THE NEXT ONES ARE "TF WST 007 and TF WST 007"
I've painted one the new Fantasy sets from ALLIANCE :
the Half-Orcs Infantry (2)... I don't know why the "2" before the "1"...
1- the whole "band" :
the poses are not too bad but have a little bit too much almost similar poses and the sculpt is quite flat like says 1Mac -Mike (Orcs set 3 review : "Cheap Fantasy Figures" ).
No surprise about the inspiration...
With closer pictures : The "static poses": the standard-bearer and the musicians :
The Shooting Uruks: only 1 archer, not a lot ! maybe there will be other ones in the next sets ?
The Fighting Uruks : almost similar poses ...
and the whole set again in a more "lively" picture :
About the painting work : not great, but not bad for me (oups!) : not easy to find colours for almost dark characters ! I've tried to forget the greenish skin with a more grey one and I have added some touches of bronze and copper mixed with grey.
Like I've said before, I'm painting 2 other ALLIANCE sets : ORCS (set 3) #72003 and Dwarves (set 2) #72008
They are 90% finished, so I will post them very soon.
A small "teaser" :
I've seen that some new sets are at the retailers so I will have to go to the market !
Hi! this is a single figure that I've painted with the other of the sets "Pirates of the Caribbean " (=>here).
I've used it for a little work for the 40th Competition on Benno's Forum .
I've won the Bronze Brush ! Very surprising for me because the level was high...
Thanks to all those who have voted for me and congrats to all the participants, especially for Konrad ( Golden Brush ) who beat me easily in the first turn !
... and now UPDATES !
1- refer to my post " I'm crazyyyyyyyyyy !??That's ok ! I'm not mad and it seems that it's normal to have a lot of projects at the same time ! Thanks for your support gents !
Since, I've finished some and now I've a lot of posts to do .... for example:
-"Beauties of the West"
-some more "mounties"
-and the finished buildings of my future "Wild West Town"
So stay tuned !
(Of course, I've started new projects but it will be a surprise !)
2-Refer to my post "Tombstone", I've done some searches about the story of the Earps, Doc Holliday and the clans Clanton et McLaury all represented in the 3 sets.
If all those characters have really existed, the story of the gunfight of Ok Corral has inspired a lot of films like "My darling Clementine (John Ford 1946) , "Gunfight at OK Corral" (John Sturges 1957),
Cheyenne Autumn (John Ford 1964), ....., "Tombstone" (Georges Pan Cosmatos 1993) , Whyatt Earp (Laurance Kasdan 1994)...
The poster of the film "Tombstone" and my pictures (I've painted the figures without it but with the pictures of Germania Figuren ) :
