Thank you very much, mates. The first stages of the project (planning, selection and conversion of figures) were relatively easy for me. The next one (painting) will require more time, effort and patience for me ... and also for you, if you want to see the results. :mrgreen:

You flatter me, Antonio. But I will only accept your proposal if you assure me that saints can paint figures and build dioramas, hahaha. ;-)

I have already started painting first Cardinal, but progress is proving very slow. :(

Cheers, friends.

Only patience.
I'm sure it's worth to wait.
For you and for us. ;-)

Thank you, mates. As you should know, patience is a great virtue. :mrgreen:

I'm trying to speed up the Cardinal's painting to show it as soon as possible. You deserve this and more for your comprehension and encouragement. :beer:

Best regards.

I have very little free time to devote to the diorama, so progress is terribly slow. :(

But I could finish the first figure, that of a Cardinal. :-D

Here are the pictures along with those of the converted and primed figure. I hope you like. ;-)

very nice! A great start.

Seeing this one has got me imagining how the whole group are going to look together; I think they will be spectacular. :-D

I think your painting is worth much more than just one euro! I would say at least two. :-D Just kidding. Look very much forward to the finished result! And it's been great to follow this project!

Thank you, Peter. It was already perfectly clear to me that you like my cartoonish style, hahaha. ;-)

Wiking and Susofrick, keep in mind the size of the euro coin compared to that of the Cardinal. I imagine that its equivalence at the same scale would be approximately 100000 euros. :lol:

Also thanks to you, Graeme and Egbert, for your kind words. :-D

The next Cardinal is ready on the work desk. I hope to finish it before 2019 ending, maintain the same level and not disappoint your expectations. :winky:

My very best regards, mates. :yeah:

You will never disappoint our expectations, don't worry! We all are admiring your fantastic conversions plus ultra-fine details in the painting style!

Thank you very much, sberry. :-D

Surely, now you can understand the slow progress of all my projects, right? ;-)

My best regards.
