  1. Hi y'all! A little trip into the futur. It's a 3d printed miniature from Papsikel, printed for me by the french company les forges de brennos. The advantage of 3d printed figures is the great details one can have. The drawback is that they don't come in separate pieces which does not make it easy to paint some corners of the figure. However, I took a lot of pleasure to paint this fellow and set him in a little setting that, I believe, tells a story. ADAB means All Droids Are sweethearts... :mrgreen: Hope you'll like it!

  2. Hi! No, resin. What made you think it was metal? Ciao IWik
  3. Hi y'all! Here's my latest. A 54mm Hoplomachus from Mercury MOdels. Very nice casting and perfect fit. Hope you'll like it. Ciao IWik PS Crap... Jus t realized I forgot to paint and glue the knife tucked in his belt...
  4. Hi Andy! Couldn't you have solidify the longer arm and fix it slightly to the stone on the ground and dispense with the metalic support, or is the kit too heavy for that? I did it with mine, but, ok, it was 1/72... Ciao IWik
  5. Hi! One of the best MF I've seen... Outstanding! Ciao Iwik
  6. Hi Bertie! Will you marry me? Jeez, these are way too kind words for me to read! Thanks a lot! I did try to dirty the helmet a bit as you have guessed! The thing is, I had just bought a bunch of Vallejo Metal Color paints and wanted to try them out. They are great indeed and offer an uncomparable shine. Too much actually... You are right. If I were to make it again I would use different hues or maybe the same ones but on a white base and not a shiny black one. As for the holes for the eyes, they are actually black. I don't mean they are all perfectly black, but the shiny spots you can see on the pics are actually some light reflections from the shiny black base. I should have put a few drops of matt varnish but it doesn't really show without spotlights on. As for the worn look, I did want to give the impression that the equipment he's wearing has been used many times over by different gladiators. So I guess I did it right if you have that impression. I'm really pleased you like this piece and that it gave you any pleasure. I will continue to try to do my best! Thanks again!!! Ciao IWik
  7. Hi y'all! After the Aquilifer bust, I decided to stay in the same time period with this SBS Gladiator bust at the same 1/20 scale. Painted with acrylics only. Hope you'll like it! Ciao IWik
  8. Thanks all. BERTIE I only used acrylics. Vallejo and a couple of citadel. Ciao Iwil
  9. Very few. Pegaso's are OOP... You can find some at FERminiatures (a great viking in my stash ) Ciao IWik and thanks!
  10. Hi y'all! Here's my latest! A OOP 1/20 bust from Pegaso. All painted with acrylics. Liked it so much that I started another same scale bust (a gladiator). See you soon (kind of...). Hope you like it. Ciao Iwik
  11. Hi y'all! That's awfully nice of you! The B-25 is not built yet. In a few months. I'll post pics of the result here. I'll soon be working on a RAF pilot in the same scale (and same brand). Hope you'll like it as well! Thanks Iwik
  12. Hi y'all! Hope to show this little fellow next to a B-25H in the next few months! Painted with acrylics only. Hope you'll like it! Ciao Iwik
  13. Hi y'all! Small pause amidst a bigger project, this little plastic Yoda from the tabletop game Star Wars Legion is a little gem of details and precision in the assembly (5 parts!). A real treat to paint. You will like it I hope, yeessss. Ciao Iwik
  14. Hi! It's artificial grass for train models I believe. Bought a looooonnng time ago. Spread some with glue on the base before sprinkling some grass on top of it. Hit the bottom of the base with a small hammer before the glue sets in; it makes the grass stand up. Ciao IWik
  15. Hi! I only paint with acrylics. Sorry for the late answer... Ciao Iwik
