    I would like to share with you guys my latest effort in 1/72nd scale. The set is from Valdemar Miniatures and sculpted by Mike Blank. I hope you like it :happy:

    1/72 scale? Fantastic work on a great little set. I too am interested in how you created the snow.

    A great sculpt by Mike, especially in 1/72 scale. You certainly didn't disappoint in the painting and presentation.

    I love seeing some of the work in the smaller scales.

    Well done Ray,
    Ken

    Very nice colours and layout, the mounted figure is superb. The only thing missing in my opinion is a little blood in the snow. Otherwise, very nice

    Dear all,

    Thank you so much for your kind comments and feedback. The snow is microballons and diluted PVA. Regarding adding some blood to the snow, to tell you the truth I am very tempted, however I'm afraid that the scene will look too gory for this small scale. Also I have researched a number of "Battle of Lake Peipus" pieces by some of the great masters, including Mike Blank himself and noticed that practically none have added blood in their snow, probably to keep it 'clean'. They only dirty the soldiers' clothing and armour with mud and some blood stains. But then I might be wrong...:)

    Frankly : let it as it is now....
    Blood is not necessary (my opinion..)

    Excellent work, particularly since it is 1/72 scale.

    Cheers,
