Here is the next step. I have painted the wonderful Valdemar "Hunters" for the Group Build. Now I have to finish the dogs walking alongside with them. I hope you enjoy.

MABO
I am very charmed by this post of yours. 8)

That is because you started painting Medieval figures after a (seemingly endless) period of WW2 stuff.

So let the middle ages be brought alive by you for the next few.... years? :-D :yeah:

What about building a medieval foam townwall?
Or a poor mans hut using foam and fur?
So lets do that workshop we talked about. :-D

Thank you very much Mr.Cryns,

I am glad that you like the figures. But I would like to point out, that I have painted already Napoleonic and ACW figures. :-D And also some 7YW classic Tin-Figures... and some medievals...

But ok, I have also painted some WWII stuff. Unfortunately I am not as productive as you. But If you offer the foam workshop at the FIGZ this will change from the first day after, of course... :mrgreen:

For the hunters I am thinking about a forest setting. Keeping in mind that they are painted for the Group Build, they have to fit in the combined work of the others.

Nice to see the hunters painted by someone else. Mine went to Arnheim. But without their dogs. So I will love to see this finished! Same address as before, Jan?

Dear MABO,

Those Danes look great and so do the Prussians and Teutonic Knights :-D :notworthy:
Most of these will fit into the 2017 groupbuild I think. When did you paint all these?

I hope in the future you use your talent to paint more of these colorful 'romantic' figures again. But who am I to say such a thing? ;-)

Have a look in the three topics of the Group Build 2017. And concerning the others: I hope you read every post here in the forum like I do...

That is really nice work Jan. Gunnar has sent his little black box.
That reminded me of the famous song little black box. BB

Hello folks!

this is the last call!


This weekend I will start the assembly of the Parade-Diorama! So please send me a message what is the status of your work and if I still can count you in. Some have already done, but it would be nice to have final messages. I would like to do my best to create something, which is fair for the wonderful entries already waiting here, but this will at least take some time.

On the brushes and let Fedex do the rest!!!!!!!!!!! 8)
