This week I have two posts, both for my on going SYW Sharp Practice project. First up is this set of 8 figures from Camp Scene with a couple of personality and leader figures.
|Group shot, blurry but shows the whole gang|
|Heinz is trying to get in Katerina's good books by being helpful around the campfire.|
|He's tempted by what she's got cooking, and supper smells good too!|
|Franz is explaining that Handel is vastly over-rated and that Bach is the true musical genius of his generation. Joseph doesn't look convinced.|
|I am pretty sure that we've all had this conversation with Franz at some point in our lives|
|While Schmidt scans the horizon, Herr Mueller is more interested in his book.|
|From the rear. These were lovely sculpts to paint.|
|The other dragoons are very jealous of Thomas for winning fair Sophia. The colour of Sophia's dress has absolutely nothing to do with a still from Emma Watson in the live action Beauty and the Beast.|
|This scene reminds rather of "historical" pictorials in certain magazines that I read as a teenager during the Carter era.|
|Back side view of the campers.|
HMMM, I dunno, Peter. I think that with Katerina's posture, she seems to be seconds from smacking Heinz with her ladle( I KNOW that body posture well thanks to my wife!) As for music, Beethoven is the master, but not yet as he is almost a decade away from birth! ;)
I like this camp set quite a bit and they will dress up the table quite well. you just need some stacks of firewood, carts, wagons, some tents, a barn, you'll also need a borrowed manor house as we know full well the senior oficers just get grumpy if they have to sleep on the ground! I think my favorite part of this group is incorporating a few of the fellows into your painted regiments. That simple bit of brushwork really ties them into your force.
