It ist the painting of a master. Beautiful und real art. But it is no flat figure. It is relief art. Very nice, but Flat Figures should be figures IMHO.

It looks like a painting of the XVI-XVIIth c.... from our old masters

Just received the figure from the guys in Mexico, and boy there's a lot of tin and the weight is high, at first look the detail is very good but I'll tell you more as I get some paint on  ;)


Figure is still unavailable but we could always see if one is still ready to post, it will not be cheap though  ::)

Look at the 1/72 resin figures that are on the "market". Average cost is 3 Euro per figure. It seems there is some interest in those figures. So, flats are too cheap.
The reason may be, that flats still are considered as mass figures. Old collectors painted them without lights and shadows to build dioramaswith hundreds (or thousands of figures).Nowadays painting ist an art. So, if the quality is high, it should no problem to increase the prices on a realistic (and fair) amount.

I agree with Gerald.  We are spoiled. May the price for the figure from Mexico be too high, I can only say that a price of 1 Euro for a normal foot figure is too less and will not encourage anyone to edit new figures.

Yes this is one of the problems,  no slate engraves in the Americas  :(


You want a figure you make it the best you can!

We are to spoiled in Europe, especially in Germany. Many very well engraved flat figures for little money.

Hello Friends
I think for the price of such a figure that is a poor performance. I expect more from the engraving.
there is a lot of work in such a figure but this one is just not nice.
I also buy no pewter figures to grind them and then to paint, because you can also make paper figures
in our figures it depends on the engraving !!
especially if it's the first one that must be great

my opinion

Things have changed,  The guys in Mexico are reconsidering the figure and at the moment it will not be available.
Michel, I have sent your money back as a refund and will let you know if we can get the figure.
