Mike Blank does it again! Another superb vignette created by the miniature artist. Wonderfully composed, painted, etc. If a figure modeler wants to find inspiration, look no further. I need to build a mounted piece...Soon!
I'm sure most who follow my blog, have seen these pieces already via other social media... And I'm really not sure why I bother posting them, for there are much better quality pics to be seen. Anyway, my apologies. For those who have not...Enjoy!
Another MFCA Show has come and gone. Time flew by with so much to see and so little time. I come home so inspired that I wish I could bottle up some of the show and open it up when feeling unmotivated while sitting at the workbench. Here's a few pics that managed to take when not talking shop and checking out the vendor tables.
I love leaving for a show and having the workbenches CLEAN of projects. Here are two that I managed to finish over the past few weeks. The Swedish kettle-drummer is a Historex conversion and the small vignette are 28mm AWI British soldiers from Perry Miniatures. The Perry figures are very nice with lots of detail, however they would look much better in a larger vignette or diorama. Rumor has it, that their Continentals have just been released. I better get more practice with this scale.
I live in the small town of Bath, Michigan with my wife and children.
I have been modeling figures for 25 plus years. Since I was a kid, I've always been fascinated by military uniforms of the past and soldier material culture. This then led me to express my interest through modeling figures from many time periods and scales.
