A "warband" of 1/72nd Italeri woodland indians (Iroquois)
and the start of a roman port diorama

Nice work on the Warriors indeed! And your island sounds interesting.

(No wonder that Linear B set is 18+; the slave (?) with the rope around his neck looks positively deformed….no wonder the other one is shying away from him.)

Nice work

Your figures truly look like miniature human beings. Great job!

I wish I had more patience for working with plastic figures myself (no rudeness of any kind intended.) The sculpting on many (not all) 1/72 plastic figures is superior to that of many (not all) miniature metal figures.

Nicely done.

Great job! I have had this set (along with lots of other AWI plastics) sitting around for years. This motivates me to get to work on them soon. What colour did you use for the natives' skin?

Nice work Paul!

Thanks :-D
@Korsun..they do look odd, especially in pic form and Streletsand the shared project from Linear-b can be a bit of an aquired taste. The good thing with them is thier range of subjects.
Painted they donŽt look half bad
I havenŽt seen what other figs are in the Roman port set..IŽve ordered them so IŽll find out soon :-D
@ Jeigheff. Agreed. The 1/72nd range of figs does seem to run from the extremely dire sculpted to some very nicely sculpted figs. Worse, the greens are shown..I think great..IŽll get those, but the molding and casting process has turned them into something in appearance to small toads.
@ Michael. Mid brown base, then flesh (P3 ryn)mixed about 40 -60% with brown then a highlight with 60-40%
IŽve looked but it says your Blogger Profile cannot be displayed (?)

Thanks for the info. And hmm, that's strange. Can you access my blog itself:
