    By way of a change a few images of all those little people just waiting to be painted :D will I ever get to the end of ’em ๐Ÿ˜†

    Still, since these were taken I have made a small dent and should have some more painted images to post soon ;).

    This is quiet interesting indeed, Mister David Daines!!!!
    I see you have had the opportunity to buy those “zvesda” ships . . . ?
    That reminds me, that I have the Nina for my never-will-begin-grey-heavens-diorama.

    Very nice to see your “working-atmosphere” !

    Lot of work to do, Mr. Daines.

    I only have 40-50 mithril miniatures still waiting to be painted, and for me is a lot ๐Ÿ˜†

    Step by step, and being constant and patient

    Err, well, yes … To me all this appears to be slightly disorganized …. ;)
    Master Ddaines I really wish you very many happy years to come in which you’ll find some time to paint, assemble our beloved tiny-metal-things and even find the time for putting some of them in wonderful dioramas …. wishing you all the best :)

    The ‘Crusader’ Cog is almost complete now and I just have to finish off the crew ;). I originally had the hull as one piece, but have taken off the bottom half to form the basis of ‘The Last Elven Ship’ for my Grey Havens scene which I will start ๐Ÿ˜† (and finish one day).

    p.s. did you notice the Revell La Reale de France on the top shelf? Originally for the Corsairs, but it seems to grand for them so I will use it for the Tar-Minastir figure and hope I can find a crew to man her :D

    Yes, David ! But I didnยดt know it is from Revell.
    La Real de France “seems” to be the perfect ship for the corsairs. Without any doubt!
    I saw it two years ago at the DUZI and I came to the same conclusion, that the scale doesnยดt fit . . . .
    I am still not quiet sure about the “Zvesda”-scale of the “Nina” . . . So I am curious about your project.
    I remember “Earendil the mariner” ! I read this part again during my holidays.

    The Cog scale fits Mithril perfectly (if you allow for a tight fit through the hatch leading up to the quarter deck), but I don’t know if this company produces every kit that they sell or if they have brought Moulds from other companies and re-release them. The detail of the Cog is very well done.

    I was going to hold back from posting images until this project was finished, but what the hell…. :D, it will give you an idea of scale comparison.

    Keep on working on this project, David. It looks terrific !!!
    And what a fantastic sail !!!! What the heck . . . always a pleasure to see some pictures of current work in progress !!!!

    PS: the scale of my Zvezda “Nina” is 1:100 while the Coq is 1:72 . . . :rolleyes:

    I know exactly where every figure is :lol::lol: (not). Actually this is the initial transfer from their previous home – I must sort everything out by race/type so that I know what I have to ‘play’ with for future projects.

    Thank you kindly sir :) although I have admit that the design is not my own creation (http://wiki.lindefirion.net/GondorFlags). I am going to adapt it to my own needs however and will also add a black banner with the White Tree to give it a kind of ‘post’ LotR setting.

    Next step is to colour the sea :/ , should get me swearing ๐Ÿ˜†
