28mm Artizan Miniatures Lawrence of Arabia with Camel

Hello again to all,  I have been through a lack of motivation period again, but eventually got around to doing this piece.
The Lawrence figure is from Artizan and the Camel is a left over from Brigade Games French Dromedary Corps, which I altered slightly, both being 28mm.
I am not that happy with outcome as I did rush things, typical of my approach after doing nothing for a while.
Anyhow, pictures are again taken with my phone.

Thanks again for looking and any comments or questions are most welcome.

Give em hell Pike! Oniria Miniatures 32mm Wild Bunch

Hello again to all that take time to look at my Blog.

Having been away on holiday I came home and decided to build and paint this model from Oniria Miniatures.
I am sure most of you will recognise the film that its from?
Yes,  The Wild Bunch, which would certainly be in my top ten of Films.
The miniature is an anatomically correct 32mm,  rather than wargames style sculpting, with large hands and head,  so its very small and petit.  Hence it was a nightmare to build correctly then paint, but very satisfying to do so.
I would much rather have had this in 54mm as most parts were miniscule to tidy up and fit together. As well as the  face and hat being not great, the head is only about 3mm x 3mm and separate from body and hat.  The face was squashed and hat was missing part of its brim.
Oh and yes I may have gone slightly overboard with blood, but it was a Sam Peckinpah film!

Oniria has recently released The Wild Bunch in 32mm walking to their doom as in last shoutout in film, not sure if I will get them yet as I would have preferred them in 54mm. Pictures were taken with phone.
Thanks for looking and any comments or questions are most welcome,  Michael.
