Incredible and generous gifts for the Sporadic and Elusive Poster


Good evening everyone!

A while ago, my generous friends from Bavaria, Lilith and Michael, had offered me something completely unexpected and incredible. They offered me over 6 complete brand new sets (all ones I was desperately looking for) along with over a 100 or so little extra figures! It is not the first time either, since two years ago they sent me German gun crews for my heavy howitzer, along with other bonus figures and an Osprey book on the 8th Army! And never once did they ask anything in return.

Now I've been going through quite stressful and trying times (but this is not a blog about this), and the surprise that these figures brought to me when I saw them in the mailbox brought me great joy. I can now officially say I have more figures than I can handle at the moment! Now, to stop buying them at every corner and repainting my obsolete ones!

Overall, what I am trying to say is thank you, Lilith and Michael. This gift you have sent me is one of the nicest things anyone has done for me in my entire life.

I thought the best way to show their worth to me is to show how much I have done with them since getting them!

And here is a little teaser for two current projects.



Once again great thank yous to both Michael and Lilith. My offers still stand!

Here is where I should promise new posts in a few days, but honestly I cannot say when will be the next time I'll post. So see you next time!

Have a great night,
FF

Caesar 1/72 Persian Warriors Pt.1

Welcome back, and I hope your week has been great,

These guys were done a little while ago, back when I still painted full black base then painted the details over. They scale up nicely with the Zvezda Persians, and are less flat then them.

Once again these are not historically accurate.

Light Infantry



Heavy Infantry



Medium Infantry



It can get a little tricky coming up with designs and patterns that work, which is why some of their colours are sub-par, but I always like a challenge!

I have many more both painted and unpainted, somexpect to see more of these guys in the future.

Have a good one!
