Hallo Casper,
it´s sometimes difficult to paint the Heinrichsen figures because they have not so much details like the modern figures.
But is it possible to paint them in a detailed style like other modern figures. Look at the Bistulfi gallery with Heinrichsen groups
or the figures of the Heinrichsen exhibition on the Plassenburg.
The 40 mm figures of Heinrichsen have more deails because Heinrichsen engraved them by himself and the moulds don´t have
much castings. 100 years ago nobody want´s 40 mm figures like today...

Best regards

Michael

A little bit off topic:
I bought Nürnberger Rostbratwurst for the first time after buying my first flats.
Nürnberg's toyish Heinrichsen vs Berliner kulturalhistorical figures
I remember seeing some years ago a coloured Christmascard, where the Santas ("tomtar") had built a two-row telephoneline from the Finnish capital to Nürnberg...

Casper, post the pieces when you get them! I looked at the ones on the BZ site, but the pics are small.


They arrived today, cheering me up after a very dreary Excel 2013 course.

Welcome Casper.

Mike Taylor used the humbrol paint as an undercoat to build up a block colour before overpainting with oil ;)

If you look at Mike Taylor's book on page 60, there is a photo on his workbench. I see between 10-20 cans of Humbrol. Although there is a black and white photo so you can see that there are more colors than just white. I have the past 20 years always mixed Humbrol and oil without problems. You can dilute both colors with white spirit.

Hallo friends of flats,

when you use fresh enamel colors they are liquid. After opening they become thick after some weeks.
Don´t use the original thinners; I use W&N Sansodor for thinning and they dry not quickly.

Best regards

I also started with enamels very long ago  ::) ::)
But I find them too thick and too quick drying; but it is just my feeling

Bought some artist quality oil paints today, I was missing the earth tones so much! Thank you everybody for pointing out that you can mix them with enamels.

Eric, in what way do enamels not fit well with flats? My very first flat, a 30mm ARW Hessian purchased in 1979 from Model Mania on King's Street in Cambridge, was painted with Humbrol and Pactra enamels... My first military miniatures (also '70s) were painted with same colors. I used Testors Model Master enamels for a brief figure fling in the early '80s. I didn't start using acrylics until the early 2000s - Andrea, Vallejo, and now Reaper.
