    Thanks Derek, glad you like them. The Avanpost range has at least two others that would have gone nicely with these three, but budgetary limits prevailed.

    Hi there

    Really nicely done , good tight composition of figures , matched by the good artwork , like the pattern on the drum and good colour palette

    Why not enter a piece into the class of your choice in our May's FOTM comp and also vote in Aprils classes as well

    ....And enter in Vignettes & Diorama #3 which will be running till 31/12/21 with voting till 31/01/22

    Always good to see the artwork

    Thanks for sharing

    Look forward to the next

    Happy benchtime

    Nice that! I love the Avanpost figures and thought that a group would be a good idea. Mine are all based separately but it's a thought for a future project!

    They work really well and the painting pulls them together nicely.

    Wonderfully done. The figures look like they could march right off of the pedestal base.

    Thanks Tony. I saw they had a second groping of figures from the same period and scale, but in "action" poses that I thought would make for a pretty dramatic little vignette. Again, so many ideas, so little cash!

    Thanks Nap, the drummer was painted according to some ECW reenactor pictures I found and the drum pattern was a fairly common one I saw in my searches. I suppose they could have been English Civil War, but wasn't sure about the uniform accuracy.

    Really nice little group, I am sure that your are well pleased with the result, I have watched a videos showing the Avanpost figures being assembled in great detail and they look top class giving the modeler total enjoyment working with them so great to see them painted.

    Yes, those are a couple of the ones I was talking about. They look great.

    Thanks Terry, I found these figures to be exceptional. Little to no clean up aside from the inevitable mould line here and there, the fit was perfect and the pose and sculpting quality speaks for itself. It took a little while for them to arrive from Russia, but was worth the wait.

    Lovely figures to make up as well. Just done an FeR figure and it was hard work. Avanpost just fit perfectly. By the way on the oil/acrylic debate I have only recently got back into the hobby after an absence of 20 years when I used to use oils and Humbrols. I've used Vallejo acrylics but it can be hard work at times. I'm thinking of getting some oils but I see there are water based oils, are these any good and can you recommend a make?
