Thank you all  for the friendly comments!
The great variety of flat figures is one of the things that makes it so interesting for collectors and painters, everyone can paint or collect whatever they enjoy.
At the moment I paint two groups of Moche - Indians from Peru and have some other very different Figures on the rack to dry  (will show them if dried)
The only problem  is - well known to every collector- that you can buy figures much faster than paint them.....

@Michel - I will follow your posts closely

Beautiful painting ...

I had just contact with Ralph about the Sword Dance, as he offered me one set, and I am now working on the préparation of the three flats, their set-up after painting, the colours to be used and a selection of the light direction.

I shall perhaps open a session here during the week, and developa work-in-progress over two weeks probably, or unteil december, as I shall start two sets in parallel ..

I just noticed on Facebook earlier this week your preliminary pictures at the Kwettinger ZF meeting stimulating my intend to prioritize that painting now.

I like the other paintings too and in particular the bright colours giving a lot of readability to such small characters on a table....
