MY "LIEBSTER BLOG AWARDS" ....


for the awards: only 5 blogs with less than 200 followers??
I have done my best, but I've chosen  some very good blogs which are more or less known and that I like a lot:
I've broken the rules, because I've chosen 6 blogs!! I've tried to mix "well-known blogs" and "less-known blogs" but they are all great !!
(I must say too that I've missed some blogs which already have their awards !) 

pour les awards: seulement 5 blogs qui ont moins de 200 suivis?? J'ai fait de mon mieux, mais j'ai choisi quelques blogs très bons qui sont plus ou moins connus et que j'aime beaucoup.
J'ai enfreint les règles, parce que j'ai choisi 6 blogs! J'ai essayé de mélanger des «blogs bien connus" et "des blogs moins connus", mais ils sont tous excellents!
(Je dois dire aussi que j'ai omis quelques blogs qui ont déjà leur prix)





 "Michigentile Micro World"
I think it's not a surprise to see the blog of Michele in my list!
Maybe you remember the small range of figures ("Figures for Michele") that I've painted for his Great Diorama :"The Day of the Tournament"?
Michele is a great modeller and also a very good painter, but he's almost a very nice man too and maybe it's the more important ?
Je pense que ce n'est pas une surprise de voir le blog de ​​Michele dans ma liste!
Peut-être vous souvenez-vous de la petite série de figurines (
"Figures for Michele") que j'ai peintes pour son Grand Diorama : «"The Day of the Tournament" ?
Michele grand est un excellent modéliste et aussi un très bon peintre, mais il est surtout un homme très gentil, et c'est peut-être le plus important ?
 

 "Lonewolf's Welten"  
 Bruno is first a Great Painter, that's sure: all what it's under his brush is awesome! He is also an experimented photographer and his blog is very beautiful. Like "my other Awards", he's a very, very kind man and it's always a pleasure for me to read his nice comments...
Bruno est d'abord un grand peintre c'est sûr: tout ce qu'il ya sous son pinceau est génial! Il est aussi un photographe expérimenté et son blog est très beau. Comme "mes autres prix», c'est un homme  très, très gentil et c'est toujours un plaisir pour moi de lire ses commentaires sympathiques ...



WesternNCity Scale Layout
even if you're not very interested with Trains and things like that, this blog (and François Simon!) is a very interesting one: not only trains, but also well converted and painted figures for his great project: François is also a talented terrain modeller and there is a lot to learn with him . (french language).
 même si vous n'êtes pas très intéressé par Les trains et des choses comme ça, ce blog (! et François Simon) est un très intéressant: non seulement pour les trains, mais aussi ses chiffres convertis et peintes pour son grand projet: François est aussi un modéliste de terrain talentueux et il ya beaucoup de choses à apprendre avec lui

I LIKE the things I LIKE! 
 Scott   does an unusual work, he's telling stories with 54mm figures (MARX, ...) and conversions, so ... "I like the things he like!"
 Scott fait un travail hors du commun: raconter des histoires avec des figurines de 54mm (MARX, ...) et des conversions, aussi ... "J'aime les choses qu'il aime!"

Jay's Miniature Enterprises
Nobody is allowed here to ignore the  Marvellous and Nice Jay! He paints and converts 15mm figs and creates an awesome and funny world for a mysterious game.
Personne ici, n'est autorisé à ignorer le merveilleux et gentil Jay! Il peint et convertit des figurines de 15mm et crée un monde fantastique et drôle pour un jeu mystérieux.

"Wargaming with Barks"
November was a Hobbit month and Barks has done a perfect painting work on some GW Hobbits!
Barks is a wargamer, but not only : the painting standard is in a high level!
Novembre a été son mois "Hobbits" et Barks a fait un travail parfait de peinture sur certains Hobbits GW! Barks est un wargamer, mais pas seulement: la peinture est d'un niveau très élevé! 


 I'm sorry for all those I didn't chose but it was too difficult! To be honest, I could have 30 blogs and more in my list ...
So thanks to Anne (Anne's Attic), Ray (Don't throw a 1), Paul (Paul's Bods),  who have too much followers ! Peter (Peter's Cave), Phil ("Association Les Riflemen"), Furabianu ("Des figurines, du Jeu et du Fun!"), Mehapito ("Au Bord du Fleuve"),  David ("Marechal a 1:72")


Liebster Blog Award !!!!!!!

I've got one !!!!!! from Ni. Tchirititch ("Nowwhere to Lead Soldiers")   

Please, just read his description about my humble blog:

"This one is not a wargaming blog nor is it dedicated to 28mm figures, rather than that, it displays jewels of medieval and fantasy in 20mm, and some superb oldschool Mithrill miniatures of the LotR. I am always moved by the poetry of Sam's approach. Unique to my point of view."
I don't know if he's right but it's so nice !


If you don't know what is this Award :

"The rules:
 - "Copy and paste" the award on your blog, and talk about it a bit.
- Select for the award your five favourite blogs with less than 200 followers, leaving a comment on one of their post to notify them that they have won the award. You need also to list them in your own blog.
- Enjoy the moment, knowing that you have just made someone's day.
- Of course, there is no obligation to pass the award, but it is a good deed really."



I will post my own list in a next post because I must have time to choose the 5 ones:
very hard to do ! (I have "just" 90 followers and more that I follow !)
5 is not a lot when I see all the great blogs I like .......


MANY THANKS Ni. (Nikolai?) !!!

REVIEW 6 -BUM "Trampers" (Trappers?) 2053 / 2054

I've bought 3 BUM's boxes, because I was curious to see what they have put in them!
1-they are very expensive (about 20€, postage cost include )
2-I was not very enthusiast when I've opened the box.
3- I didn't have the resin base which is shown on PSR (cf link above) !!!!!!
4-but I must say that  the subject is very original in our scale and some figures are really nice,
except the ugly Hurons which have the bad habit to appear in each box of that serie!
Well, I will stop my "blabla" and let you see the pictures. 

-The first one is "Canadian Trampers in winter dress"(2054)
  (PSR link)

the box with the art cover
 
I like the figures, even if 5 poses/6 is not a great deal...


not bad, but 2 dogs it's not enough for the sledge....

I've 2 vivacs now: one for winter.....

I love them!! so nice and well sculpted!


 then, same subject but "Canadian Trampers in summer dress"(2053)

art box....

5 trappers + 1 awful dog

quite good figures, I like the one on the right!

.... and one vivac for summer !! yeah !

very large bridge: good for a truck!
no comment....
again my lovely Hurons!!
You can do all the comments (or not): it's not my own work! ($$$just my money!$$$)

J'ai acheté 3 boîtes BUM, parce que j'étais curieux de voir ce qu'ils ont mis dedans!
1-elles sont très chères (environ 20 , frais de port inclus)
2-Je n'étais pas très enthousiaste quand j'ai ouvert la boîte.
3 - Je n'ai pas eu la base en résine qui est montrés  sur PSR (lien cf ci-dessus)!!
4-mais je dois dire que le sujet est très original dans notre échelle et certaines figurines sont vraiment sympas .....
à l'exception des Hurons horribles qui ont la mauvaise habitude d'apparaître dans chaque boîte de cette serie!



You can do all the comments (or not): it's not my own work! ($$$just my money!$$$)

 (Coming soon: "BUM's Hurons camp" and "Waterloo 1815: "Roger's Rangers")


Marketplace: I've 2 sprues of 6 hurons to sell !!!!!! very low prices!

"Russian Farm Houses" (PEGASUS 7702) - 1/72 -

a quick post about a quick work !
I'm not really accustomed to be fast work, but I must say that this set of 2 (nice) buildings is fun to build and paint.

The painting work was quiet easy (!), with using some coats of different brown and VALEJO washes and a light drybrushing.

I've made some quick shots with figures for showing the scale.
Good for Old West, Trappers, etc.....










I add those quick shots with figures for the scale and for the possible use!
(good for Old West, Trappers, Pioneers, etc...... I think !)
J'ajoute ces photos avec des figurines de la même échelle et pour l'utilisation possible! 
(bon pour Old West, trappeurs, pionniers, etc ..... je pense!)
 Figures : STRELETS "Boers" revisited :  "Cow-Boys" Part 1 and "Part II"







I've planed to paint both other PEGASUS sets

7703-Russian Logs Houses












7704-Russian Log House - 2 story:

"THE HOBBIT" (1) "Radagast the Brown" (MITHRIL M84)

I've finished a new MITHRIL figure....Radagast the Brown,  just some weeks before we can see another one in the new P.Jackson movie... (no comment!)
I've took some liberties with the colours, as I didn't found any description.
For me, it's an "ecological" wizard, so he wear dresses with "natural" colours like green, blue, yellow and .... brown naturally !

J'ai terminé une nouvelle figurine MITHRIL: Radagast le Brun .... seulement quelques semaines avant que nous puissions en voir un autre dans le nouveau film de P.Jackson ... (sans commentaire!)
J'ai pris quelques libertés avec les couleurs, car je n'ai pas trouvé de description.

Pour moi, c'est un  magicien
"écologique", donc il porte des vêtements aux couleurs "naturelles" comme le vert, le bleu, le jaune et .... le brun naturellement!












I want to add a "Special Mention" for a blog that I follow since many times.
It could look like a "strange" blog, but in fact it's something quite inventive!
With basics figures and sceneries, Bunkermeister  create nice stories.
Just have a look, and let a comment, I'm sure that he will be very happy!

"Some Nights...."

                                    

...... just a song.... but this one, I love it and the Video is awesome and fascinating!



FUN. LYRICS       "Some Nights"

Some nights, I stay up cashing in my bad luck
Some nights, I call it a draw
Some nights, I wish that my lips could build a castle
Some nights, I wish they'd just fall off

But I still wake up, I still see your ghost
Oh Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for oh
What do I stand for? What do I stand for?
Most nights, I don't know anymore...
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa oh oh
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa oh oh

This is it, boys, this is war - what are we waiting for?
Why don't we break the rules already?
I was never one to believe the hype - save that for the black and white
I try twice as hard and I'm half as liked, but here they come again to jack my style

And that's alright; I found a martyr in my bed tonight
She stops my bones from wondering just who I am, who I am, who I am
Oh, who am I? mmm... mmm...

Well, some nights, I wish that this all would end
Cause I could use some friends for a change
And some nights, I'm scared you'll forget me again
Some nights, I always win, I always win...

But I still wake up, I still see your ghost
Oh Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for, oh
What do I stand for? What do I stand for?
Most nights, I don't know... (come on)

So this is it? I sold my soul for this?
Washed my hands of God for this?
I miss my mom and dad for this?

(Come on)

No. When I see stars, when I see, when I see stars, that's all they are
When I hear songs, they sound like this one, so come on
Oh, come on. Oh, come on, OH COME ON!

Well, that is it guys, that is all - five minutes in and I'm bored again
Ten years of this, I'm not sure if anybody understands
This one is not for the folks at home; Sorry to leave, mom, I had to go
Who the fuck wants to die alone all dried up in the desert sun?

My heart is breaking for my sister and the con that she call "love"
When I look into my nephew's eyes...
Man, you wouldn't believe the most amazing things that can come from...
Some terrible lies...ahhh...

Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa, oh oh
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa, oh oh

The other night, you wouldn't believe the dream I just had about you and me
I called you up, but we'd both agree
It's for the best you didn't listen
It's for the best we get our distance... oh...
It's for the best you didn't listen
It's for the best we get our distance... oh...

"At the Campfire" (VALDEMAR Medieval Camp) - Finished

After a Successful Post about Séverine and Sébastien's works (best score of comments since I've started my blog: I'm completely jealous! )  [ "A MITHRIL meeting....." ] My friends thank you all for your nice welcome and comments.
Well, with difficulties I've continued my humble work !
(next time, I will do a tavern, a mounted Warg, a Hobbit Hole, a Warg Skin, a Mumak, etc.......)
But it's too much time to do, so finally I've finished this little dio!
Like somebody said: I'm telling stories, I hope that's another one witch will "tickle" your imagination.........
(I must say that the pictures are not very good: maybe not enough light, but it gives an impression of "before the night" that's fit quite well with the subject, no?)




At the last post, I've forgotten to say that David Berta [ "Everything is Fair in love and Wargames" ]for me the little Poster which is on at the up right of my page : I like it a lot ! (it's one of my preferred passage both of the book and the movie!) :

... I'm just not Fat....
