  2. I decided to give the underside of the rotary base a lick of varnish to improve the overall finish. Here’s the base out on the patio supported by my sooper-dooper painting jig while the varnish was drying. Just as well I pinned the figures and fixed them in place with hi-strength 5-minute epoxy….and just as well I’m not of a nervous disposition..!! I had to do this outside cos the varnish stank to high heaven. I reckon it’s secondary purpose must be to clear blocked drains or something. So, here's what I penultimately ended up with.... ....only the Iceni Queen really didn
  3. Here's some close ups of the major characters;
  4. Thanks for the response Mr Bridger. I'm planning a series of dioramas that'll interlink with the story which is provisionally titled,"Renaissance Vatican Albino Assassin Revelations"....I've written a script for it, but am reluctant to post it in case other member might think I've been at the naughty malboro, or have inbibed too much of that Chinese wine.... ....

(The "Roland" and the "Valkyrie" figures are being reserved for a different scenario).

Cheers H
  7. Here's where I'm at right now with a couple of WIP's. They're around 90% finished - just a few more details to pick out. L-to-R, we have "Vlad Tepes" from Beneito Miniatures and a guy I'm calling "Silvio" from Andrea Miniatures. Both figures are earmarked for a "Fantasy-Renaissance" type diorama that I've kickstarted to be set inside the courtyard of the "Priory of Sion", which should be good for a laugh. I haven't bothered finishing the figure bases cos the miniatures will be fixed straight onto the diorama base. I'm also intending to build a further two scenarios which will be set else
