Impressive collection of figures, corks an critters.
What's the deal with the paint scene on the critter second row from the bottom and second from the left?

Thanks Jerry and Rick.

Rick,
The paint on the critter in question is a form of camouflage used in WW1. I was mostly used on tanks and artillery but did make it to a few pieces of RR equipment. I have painted much if my artillery this way.

I don't know what's more impressive, painting all those figures or drinking that much wine. In either case "job well done". Cheers


Frank

I love shots like this! You've got an outstanding collection.

Larry nice collection of critters that you have. Dude, that is an insane amount of figures you've painted. That will add a lot to your layout's presentation. Although you may have to start taking roll call before each operating session.

Who the heck made the human sacrifice figure? I assume that's for gaming?
As for the Canadian troops, I really like you have several in the burlap helmet covers for their Brodie helmets. Nice touch!

Thanks, The hanging lady is a gaming figure and came with two skeletons, can't remember the make. I have been able to find a few figures in 32mm gaming that work for this type of fun post.
I am trying to recreate the feel off WW1 modeling without getting to the point where every figure takes 2 weeks to paint. These castings appeared to represent the helmets with covers so I had to paint them as such.

Good point. On my own layout, I have several soldiers, but not enough that I have to paint too many. I could focus on each individually (painting the 1LT bar on the front of one GI helmet took a tiny brush and a very steady hand). I couldn't imagine painting dozens of them like you have to, and with full overseas combat loads!

Larry, your layout is a good reminder of how bad WWI was.

Back at it, mass priming of equipment before the weather turns too cold to spray paint outside. I will be able to take these to the beach to finish.
If you look really close 60% of what is on the table are 3d printed seconds I got really cheap. The will be turned into war damage waiting for repairs in a future scene.




I will be meeting with some wood workers Saturday to finalize the build of my modules. All will move quickly after they are built. The thousands of details, hundreds to figures, 40 - 55 vehicles and structures I have finished will finally have a home.
