    David, I have the ICM French from the Franco-Prussian War that I plan to do a small vignette with, at some stage.

    Pallet is now a lot smaller.

    Hi David

    Figures looking good , hopefully this will be completed before your travels begin

    Tiles are cheap enough , don't you know a builder who might have some or get a wet palette perhaps

    I’m sure I can find one.
    Left my old job where we had a box of them in the tool room (where this one came from; should’ve taken two).
    I use enamels so wet palette is no good, sadly.

    My parents had a tile, bless 'em!
    All sorted again until the butter fingers kick in once more.
    In the meantime, an accesories set from MiniArt arrived, to go with the forthcoming 1914 French Zouaves project 20230902_220449.jpg E7EekaeXIAQZXxd.jpeg
    And the (Franco-Prussian War) painting that prompted the idea.

    David, that looks like a nice project, will be interested to see this one in the making. Only trouble with this though is both side wore blue!! How you gonna tell who the good guys are?

    It's done. Came out okay, but nothing to write home about.
    It'll be joined by another when time allows.

    None of these figures are likely to warrant a "completed" thread. So I'll keep the "work in progress" one going ad-nauseum and post the final project in "dioramas".
    Hopefully it will be worth the wait.
    (Off to the US soon, so will either be oozing, slug-like, with inspiration afterwards, or saturated with the subject, and start the rather smart 54mm medieval geezer in the cupboard).

    Nice figure, sounds like you're working towards a good finished product, stick with the recent history though!

    Really looking forward to seeing how the set come together as a scene. As I said before, the possibilities with these figures really surprises me. They are far nicer pieces than I originally thought they would be.

    Thay ain't bad. For the price, you get nice pieces with plentiful accessories (and we should ALL accessorise, darling!).
    Clearly aimed at vignettes and dioramas.
    Not as good as individual figures (that cost more), but ICM produce a very interesting range (WW1 in numbers I haven't seen before) and I like to support a Ukrainian company.

    Strips of soft metal attached - with some difficulty - as straps. Much trimming still to do.
