"Pioneers and Pilgrims" IMEX 521 / IMEX 516 -Part I

I don't paint a lot but I paint !
I'm working on both sets of IMEX :
 "American Pioneers" (516) and
 "Pilgrims" (521)
I've just finished the women and some children .
Next part will be the animals and then the men...

  5. I like the pioneer figures, Chief. I bet that the cook is stirring up something nice and delicious to eat, for those who have worked hard this day.

  6. Those Imex sets are excellent; I wish they made even more civilians.

    Great painting. I like how bright the colors are while still looking realistic.

      I'm quite pleased with the colours ! and daylight pictures are better ! I don't know how the men will look after painting .... (another colours palette)
      yes ! good sets ! like many IMEX sets.... it's a pity that this manufacturer has stopped to produce figures ...

    1. Merci Phil !
      j'aimerais bien avoir plus de temps pour quelques "fantaisies" de ce genre mais en ce moment c'est un peu compliqué...
      sois patient !

    1. Merci Stéphane !
      c'est vrai qu'il y a beaucoup de bleus ici ! l'occasion de travailler un peu plus cette couleur.
      De plus, photos en plein jour (mais pas au soleil) : je crois que ça aide à avoir un meilleur rendu de la réalité.

  13. Amazing Painting Sam Wise.Your Imex Figures are quite unlike mine. I suppose I could try peeling of indeed chipping off some of the paint on them ,and then try to find the figures underneath that you have painted. Always real good to visit your stuff here. BB

    1. Thanks Paul !
      We don't have the same skills and maybe tastes too ?
      You do some works I'm unable to do, but it's not a problem ! I always enjoy to see your funny, crazy, marvellous works and I know that I can't do the same but that's why it's such a pleasure to see your buildings and so long !
      I've subscribed by email to your blog, but don't comment a lot (almost never !) , I apologize for that .

    2. Hi Sam,my blog,BB`s Blog,is a crazy place. My space where i post whatever i wish. Accentric to a T, thats little old me. On Benno`s Figure Forum,i did some crazy hot stuff with some dried Chillie Peppers,check it out it`s totally all from me,and from those spinning marbles inside my ancient head.
      A gifted Hobbit ,has no need to apologize to a little Gnome like me.
      In a most friendly way,and advice.Try not to leave it to long before you post again here on your wonderful little Blog. BB

  14. These two Imex sets are awesome and under-rated. They can work as Americans for probably 200 years depending on how they are painted. I use many of them as German rural civilians too for WWII wargames.

    1. sorry for the delay !
      you're right about the use of those figures : they can cover many periods.. and I'm not sure that they are very different to some people in European Countries of nowadays ..
