    I get a headache just thinking of painting all those figures.



    He said he would only eat the B**h. He is going down for for that comment. I hope this stays kind of clean.

      • 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

              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.

                • Thank you Frank, Cody and Larry C. No work on the RR this week I better get cracking.

                  • 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.

                                Larry, a fitting tribute to veterans. Thanks for posting.
