Now For Something Completely Different

March 10, 2017 in Figures

Some time ago I decided that I wanted, little by little, to archive photos of most of my completed models here on iModeler. So if you will indulge me, I’m going to start with my figures.

This first one is a set of flats,Napoleon at the Farmhouse, I received from a friend in Germany. They are 30mm, which is about 1/48 scale. I don’t remember the editor. The background is painted on artist quality drawing paper finished with gesso. I put on several layers of gesso, then sanded them smooth. The design of the background is a composite of ideas from a few different sources.

  1. Scott, nicely done. I don’t see flats too often, but I’m not a figures guy.

  2. Not being all that familiar with “flats” myself, perhaps a little perspective (i.e. different photo angles) would educate those of us neophytes of that genre. šŸ™‚

    What a great idea putting your entire collection on display. Personally, I would love iM to be a good personal “display case” for everyone, not only in terms of posting new articles, but also holding one’s entire collection together. Id’ be curious about your experience along this archiving project, and if you find anything that we could improve at iM, please let me know.

    Also, I’ve always admired people doing flats, it’s like an art form in itself, and this one is no exception. Has some aura of a renaissance painting, with that single window, the perspective of the room, and the shadows. These painted shadows (the fireplace just pops out) look just great!

    Something like I’m doing.
    Nice figures.

  5. Effective painting re achieving perspective. The attention to highlights and lowlights in the uniforms is noteworthy.
