    Hola!

    David writing. This is the most recent mini I finished.
    Again in my favorite scale (1/72nd), and again a little figure swap project, this time for my good friend and creative powerhouse Andreas - who gave me a beautiful and tiny samurai figure in exchange.

    For these exchange projects I like to create figures and scenes that are somehow connected to the person I build them for. For this one, I was heavily inspired by the golden autumn light that I saw all around me these last two or three weeks. And since Andy is a proud son of the Bavarian region of Franconia, I wanted to portray a proud Frankish warrior walking through the autumny woods of his home, some time in the early 4th century A.D. (which was when the Franks were supposedly mentioned in Roman texts for the first time).

    The mini is a slightly converted (to give it Andy's hairstyle ;-) Germanic Warrior by Germania Miniatures; the tree is scratchbuilt from a twig, lots of Milliput, cotton wool and railway flock.

    I am happy to say that Andy liked the figure and that we will do a figure swap again in the future!

    A big thank you hug goes out to Roman for taking these wonderful pictures! I am sure you can see the difference between them and my usual stuff. But I will learn and improve!

    Thanks and best,

    D.
