    Excellent work on all of those lovely figures.

    I have currently four of these (and plan on getting at least one more, maybe two) but I can't make my mind up whether to combine some or all of them, or do them individually like you have.

    Thanks Steve,

    I understand you mean. But when you combine the figures they lost their individually "appearance".

    Beautifull job Ben, on all of them.
    Why not making a dio with the figures on one display??

    nice choice of miniatures and very nice painting.
    If I may : with such intense fabrics colors, those should reflect on your metals, your metal base is excellent, just add color reflections in it by adding some subtle glazes
    this way you'll achieve a very realistic look.
    keep on the good work sir !

    What a fabulous collection of figures from a deeply impressive range. I have 6 of these yet to be built and if this doesn't inspire me to paint them, nothing will! Great job.

    Thanks Marc, the figures are so beautifull, when they are in a dio they lost in the mass of the other figures.
