Art Girona 54mm King Decebalus the Brave of Dacia 87-106 AD

Again this is another of my entries into Soldat De Plom 2018, the pictures also being borrowed from Paco who took the show photos.

I did notice the lower part of the Draco shaft is bent in photo, someone must have touched it after I handed it in to Judge.

This is a very nice sculpt from Art Girona and fitted together really well considering the amount of parts there were to it. I did try for the drab boring colours you would expect for clothing worn by someone in 87-106 AD, even though he was a King.

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

35mm Caho-Ta with Hroka from Red Republic games Soldat De Plom 2018 Arena Rex

Here is another of my entries that I took to Soldat De Plom 2018 in Girona.

Many people thought that this was a Historical figure of a Red Indian, but in fact its a fantasy figure and of a female.
These are not cheap figures but are of high quality sculpts, from Red Republic for a game called Arena Rex.
Thanks for looking and any comments or questions are welcome.  Michael

Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn 1/9 scale Bust from the film True Grit. Soldat De Plom 2018

Hola to everyone, having just come back from Girona and Barcelona in Spain after entering the Soldat De Plom 2018 painting competition, I still have Spanish in my head.

Having entered 5 entries and winning with 2 of them, this being one, I feel it was a well worth a visit to Spain.

This is a very well sculpted bust from MMM of Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn from the film True Grit in 1/9 scale.  I did not take these pictures of my models they are borrowed from Soldat de Plom themselves and are  taken by Paco.  If you want to see the  pictures of the other entries then go to 

there you will see hundreds of fantastically painted models large and small.

This bust won me a Gold medal on the day and was up against some really good competition.
I will be posting my other entries to Soldat de Plom 2018 here soon.
Thanks again for looking and any questions or comments are most welcome.
