  1. Always impressive to see those who are talented enough to paint figures realistically. More of an artist than a modeler, I would think...(of which I am neither).

  2. Those are really great. The artistry is incredible. Gotta say the D-Day infantryman on Omaha Beach (#65) is the most completely realized - like a 3-dimensional photo.

  3. I've thoroughly enjoyed every posting from Moson so far, thank you very much, Martin. Are there going to be any non-military postings?

  4. The quality of work is so universally high it is difficult to choose - however personal favourite is the GI on the beach - the dynamic nature of the figure and the pose has that extra factor

  5. A mixed group for me, but all very good of course.

    Some techniques and subjects widely seen at shows, and executed to varying skill levels; I thought the Confederate soldier standing with the Stars and Bars probably the best all-rounder.

    Having just judged a Figures category at the Milton Keynes show this past weekend I'm uncomfortably aware of the impact of a very few points between a Gold and Silver on artists who have all worked to the same degree of excellence. Some people happy, some not so much...

    • Rob,
      Funny you would mention the Confederate standard-bearer; this was also one of my favorites, not least because of the fantastic rendition of light and shadow on the banner.

      Judging in contests is always difficult, and when all comes around - it's a beauty contest, so what is "right" for some may not be equally worth praising to others.

  6. The pirate is nice... arrrrgh!

  7. Was there a ship category this year?
