Hi ! It's quite a long time (a few days ...) that I've not been seating in front of my painting table but I've finished some new things and begun some others ...
I want also apologize for my poorparticipation in theblogosphere but I'm very busy and have many small problems in the real life which are "time-eaters". I will be more present in the next weeks, I hope. some quick pictures(of a return in the medieval time!) : -"Interrogation" (KAMAR) finished -"Inquisition" (VALDEMAR) finished -"Guards Resting" (VALDEMAR) on progress -"Guards on duty " (VALDEMAR) on progress + 2 dogs on progress + 2 Monks finished more details coming soon... I've no special project for all those figures.... it seems that my main desire is to paint figures and wait for ideas ...
I've also "sculpted" some oars in coffee-sticks for my different oarsmen !
In 2013, I've painted 2 figures of this set and like I'verecently painted the Set 2 (here), I was thinking that it was a good thing to complete the set 1!
This nice set of 11 poses is quite pleasant to paint and fit perfectly with the set 2, except that the sculpt is a little bit less precise.
This "Dwarven Adventurer on Pony" was previously painted for "Dwarvember" ... it's a little bit to late !
It's not really a common MITHRIL figure, and it was quite difficult to find it, but I've 2 yet, one unpainted, and this one painted !
A very nice figure in my opinion, I like it !
Hi ! in the past weeks, I've finished a few projects which had invaded my painting-table.... and since, I've begun some others !
The figures of ALLIANCE "Dwarves" (set 1) were not all been painted (2 or 3 only painted last year for "Orctober"), that's almost done now and I will show them very soon.
I've decided also to paint some medieval sets... and they are on the good way, but it's still a secret !
Some monks are on the finish line for the Monk of the Month' challenge...
I'm finishing too the buildings IV and V of the Old West Town.
But the set that I will show you this time is quite rare one, because the new BUM sets are not common and ... expensive !
I was very interested by the Whaleboat: unusual subject I think.
It could be surprising to see such a boat with Rogers Rangers (AWI), but maybe it's possible?
I didn't search historical informations about that... (lazy man I am!)
Like often, I don't know what I will do with this set... but I'm sure that I will find something in the future: we always need a whaleboat as you know !
In the mean time, it's another ship to add at my collection, not a bad deal in fact.
And now, Ladies and Gentlemen, let's see the pictures !!
(Like you see, I've some problems with the oars ; those which are with the set are unusable ! I'm doing some oars in wood !)
Salut! dans lesdernières semaines, j'ai terminéquelques projetsquiavaient envahimatable de peinture.... etdepuis, j'en ai commencéquelques autres!

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 !
