Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

When SWMBO is away, this occurs.

Last week was my last holiday week (well, I'm going to get some few more days for a wedding - not mine..yet), so I had plenty of time to paint and amuse myself. SWMBO was working during this week....and the feeling was: ohhhh what a bliss!

I've painted plenty of figures as you will see below, from various historical periods - dark ages, musket era, vietnam war and modern times.

By following this pattern, I realized that my mojo did not diminish  by the end of the week, and that was because I didn't feel bored whilst painting. Using similar techniques, but, different colours and figures the difference was huge for me, and I think that I may stick to this alternative method, for what is worth. 


Kambodian Khmer Rouge soldiers (see the red scarf...) - Vietnam war (I used a set from Imex - Korean War/ # 531 Chinese's  People Liberation Army)

And now for something completely different...

US Infantry - Mogadishu / Somalia (Revell #02520 US Infantry) - a new (as if, I didn't have many already).

I hope that you didn't find them too many, and that they didn't distract you from my one theme/time per post.

Hope you all have a great Monday!



  1. What a great week's work and stunning job on those moderns with their camouflage uniforms. This is an approach that I wholeheartedly endorse, after all variety is the spice of life!

  2. They are all great especially the partisans and the camo on those US Infantry is awesome!

  3. Great work. Khmer Rouge is inspired and unusual.

  4. Blimey you have been busy!!! I hope SWMBO doesn't read this post or you'll be in Big trouble!!!

  5. Lots of variety and painting goodness, Mr.T. The bases look very very nice on the grass mat/ground cover.

  6. Well done T. There's certainly some history covered there. Glad to hear you are enjoying the painting.

  7. Excellent work, those modern US infantry camo is perfect


  8. Very nice! The FIW French are my favourites, great work!

  9. They all look wonderful Thanos! Great work!

  10. You have been busy and painting variety has paid off. A great collection of figures.

  11. Great bunch of painted figures! Like them all!
