    This is a re-paint of something that's been languishing in the attic for a few years - Verlinden's 120mm German officer of WW1.

    I've always had a soft spot for this figure, not only because of the action pose, but also because it's a great sculpt (in my opinion). The only thing I've changed is to put a grenade in his left hand - the kit hand is held flat with the fingers outstretched and someone commented on another site that it made him look a bit camp.

    Morning Peter

    Nice retread and good move with the new hand.

    A different palette of colours too, which must have been fun to use for a change.

    More figures to be rescued from the attic?

    Wet weather ahead for the rest of the week.

    Ideal for hobby time

    Morning Steve

    Not my greatest, but enjoyable to do. Yes, more figures lined up for the Dettol, but I'm finding it hard to get the old, brown stuff locally - the newer type doesn't work. Rain just about to arrive and we're off to visit my granddaughter on Thursday, so limited bench time this week - a Tamiya conversion on the bench.

    Hi Peter

    Liking the uniform colour you've achieved , you say it's not your greatest but you enjoyed painting which is what the hobby is all about

    Look forward to the Tamika conversion

    Happy benchtime

    Good one Peter, I dont remember seeing this figure before and you are right the pose etc is fairly good and in addition to WW1 subjects not being that popular this makes this very nicely painted figure stand out.

    Very nice Peter, I love how you did the leather, those boots look great.

    As for his hand, the person commenting on another side obviously didn't have military experience. In tthe military a flat hand with outstretched fingers isn't camp, it means "stay down, hold position". Not that it matters, your conversion has added some more interest, as usual.

    Looking forward to the Tamiya conversion. Any hints? Lol.

    Nap - Yep, it's all about the enjoyment.

    Mike - Thank you.

    Terry - Many thanks. I have another couple of Verlinden 1WW Germans in the attic that would be well worth stripping down.

    Henk - Glad you like him. As for the pose, I didn't remember that about the hand, though I think the complainant objected to the pose in general. Here's the original box art, see what you think:
