    I hope to have all the single figures finished for Eindhoven.

    Beautiful work...base work design is really clever. It may be the camera angle...but the left arm on the prisoner looks like it might be way too long. If he straightened it out, it would be down to his knee it looks from this angle.

    Thanks Phil. At first the arm was too long (first picture) I then corrected it. The camera angle distorts somehow, I also think.

    Thanks Marcel, the punkrocker is still in his primer. No paint on it yet...
    One day..

    Robert, I like the human element you have managed to capture in your work.
    The Endkampf one seems to have some tragedy/ pathos around it.

    well done,

    Cheers

    Thanks Ken!

    Sebastien, Thanks. The blog needs some serious updates....

    Thanks Jamie. The human element is the main reason doing figures. I used to be an armor builder.

    greets,
    RJ
