Really great work with these figures! Agree with Aaron (Bluefachion)!

I share the comments of the former replies. You achieved really the best imaginable with Mars figures. Incredible good painted with wonderful colours. Will these figures integrated later also in a diorama?

I understood correctly: do you want step by step photos of the process of preparing and painting the following figures?

Yes, this is for a diorama. But for now, I paint all the sets of Mars, one by one. I have not yet thought through all the details of the diorama, but I’ll say for sure that I will make separate battle episodes as separate modules.

Or a written tutorial would also be helpful. Are you creating new hands or modifying the hands original to the figure?

There is no manual. I modify the hands with a special two-component putty "Tamiya".

Do you create a hole in the hand for the new weapon to fit through? The effect you have created is very convincing indeed. Maybe a picture of the figure's hand immediately after you remove the original weapon would help me to understand. I am a little bit slow to grasp new concepts at times.

The following figures that I am preparing are light Lithuanian cavalry. For these figures, I will not change anything, leave everything as it is.
And when there are suitable figures that need weapons, I’ll take a photo.

Sometimes I make a hole in the figure's hand.
The figures from the last photo did not have weapons. I glued the weapon to the figure's hand with a super-glue, and then with a putty imitated the figure's hand.
