Konrad,
since Arnhem they are mutliplying, multiplying,...
Great show and I am wondering how you will end this scene. Surely you will add a surprise. Some Caesar Augustus or a great general maybe?
Waiting..
Greetings
Michael

These are looking great, but I have bad news for you. That light at the end of the tunnel is a train filled with more romans for you to paint! :mrgreen:

No Susofrick not more Romans but the triple amount of Dacians opposing them!

Konrad this is the real work! This all makes sense when I am overthinking the question WHY DO WE USE THOSE SMALL 1/72 FIGURES?

You show us why. There is no point in painting just a handful of them.
In that case scale 1:35 or at least 28mm is much better.

I think 1/72 (like 15mm) only makes sense for gaming, as additions to buildings, forests and ships or for RATIO 1:1 like you show us here. And most impressive is your quality of painting considering these numbers! :notworthy:

I realy like to hear from you how it feels to work in this mass productional way.
Is it getting boring? Or is it relaxing? May be a spiritual experience like a mantra thats repeating over and over again?

I find myself wondering if anyone has done this in Napoleonics, including all the corporals, sergeants, drummers officers etc. I was just thinking of the table space needed to display a battalion in line at a 1/72 ground scale.

It isn't boring,it isn't relaxing.It is work.
But after some time , it is also a great satisfaction .

And it's an experience about yourself.
It is a question of self-discipline,not of painting.
Beano Boy (the wise man) said this when i start with my first post.

One of my favorite books is "HAGAKURE" from Tsunetomo Yamamoto.
He said,"ONE OF THE WAYS IS PATIENCE".
And it is great to see what you can do with patience. ;-)

Sounds like the real Deutsches Arbeits Ethos :-D
I think you don't need the Japanese way at all.

It can not be a co-incidence its always the Germans making the most massive, realistic and ratio 1:1 diorama's. :notworthy:

Warm regards!

Share Bliss! The Panoramic View in small scale figures,
a Wonderful sight to see those finished hundreds set out here Konrad.

It takes enormous amounts of money,effort, and time out from doing other things to paint these kinds of numbers. A D M would I`m sure understand that too.
One becomes the night Owl!__________________i still am,but I`m a writer and those hours are peaceful for such compulsive work,and most certainly I get to here the real night Owl in the wood just beyond our boundary hedgerow.

The question on painting by numbers ._____ :sst: " I kinda like that BB."
It was the Hat, French Middle Guard that gave me the opportunity to start painting on mass 668 of them,but all not entirely finished although I did paint all the marching rank and file figures first.
As for the rest they are two thirds painted.

Sorry guys,it should have read,`hear',when referring to the little night owl.
