Yes my figures were ordered from Taipeh, upon this bright shinny morning by my Mrs B.
They will be housed in Henry`s eight sided tower which doubles up nicely as a well designed storage unit for all my metal figurines.All in all quite a success story for you Torsten, well done. :-D BB

It is enjoyable to read these lovable judgments here. :-D

I think it's a welcome occasion at the same time, i also say thank you. Because many things i've dared would never have happened without the numerous readers and participants of this forum, who are looking at my thread. It would not happened without those who expand their collections with my figurines and it wouldn't happened without some of my friendly and patient supporters and advisers. Also it wouldn't occured without the great sculptors in our beloved scale that i could take as role models. And last but not least i want not forget to mention the guys from the foundry, who always perform astonishingly when moulding and casting.

Thank you all for this! :thumbup:

The bulls seem to inspire me to sculpt a Aurochs. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aurochs)

Why do you want to make so much trouble, the aurochs already exists. At least as a master model... :oops:

Do you remember?

But i would be interested to see your interpretation of these impressive beasts. :eh: :yeah:

My splendid tiny Dogs and Highland cattle arrived today that Mrs B bought from
www. germania-figuren.com that provides very good service indeed. :thumbup: Thanks guys
They are all super clean castings and i highly recommend them.
Quality control and a caring workforce producing molds and castings certainly means extra orders from us in the near future. The Wild Boar herd is a must to obtain when available. :-D BB

There's no problem, the thread is really already long...

Paul, thank you. I am glad you have noticed exactly the criteria that are important for me as well. I connect me with your praise for Taipeh (Germania-Figuren) and its commercial relationships. They all do a great work! :-D

I'm looking forward to the wild pigs too, i think they will be beautiful figurines. :-)

Deep in the Forest,
those Wild Boars, seen earlier on page 9 sleep in slumber,at Egberts Castle. A magical place full to the brim with grunting snorting dreams that float by without even a hint of a frightening nightmare. Grunt Grunt,.snort Grunt!

Meanwhile the Wolves from Craggy End Bottom, where the bend in the fast flowing river feeds their mountain stream are up ,and very watchful but no pig-lets to be seen this time.

Image

The snow-faced Bears are out for fun this time,and have been slip-sliding belly style all afternoon.

Image

The Bob Cat Lynx,are spectators too to this double daring Bearing extraordinary event .

They have arrived, and beautiful little models they are too. the detail of the sculpting is very fine.

They are beautifully cast as well. and very well packaged for their trip half way around the world.

A big Thank You from me to Torsten and Michael and Benno's forum.

Not everything is in focus in that shot so here's a closer look at one of the figs. I love this little guy with his tongue hanging out.

p.s. Don't tell Barnaby Joyce about the dogs. ;-)

Today there are pictures of a new bull of Maremmana cattle (also possible Boskarin or Hungarian steppe cattle) which i've chosen as a model because its dynamism and sheer power, large horns and a very beautiful color impressed me incredibly.
