I got some message where people ask me about how to paint our German Afv crew set (72-12). Ok, I finished the painting process and here are some pictures about smaller parts. Please note these are small scale, so the lines are not so sharp.
You can order the figures up today.
Thanks for the interest! New sets are comming soon! (realy!)
We didn’t post for a long time but we were not lazy! Other new products are on our workbench and this boxarts also were in progress. The actual two new guys can be put in all dioramas with modern subject.
After a long process we can release this unique bust, an uhlan from the 1st Uhlan Regiment of Polish Legions in the Austro-Hungarian Army 1914-18. About historical background we recommend two lexicon links:
In spite of we can find several pictures about the first brigade, did not remain enough original uniform items to know the exact colours. In Vienna (HGM – Austrian Military Museum) we can find an original Chapka (the headgear) and next to this we can find a totally different uniform of the 2nd brigade. So, only the Czapka helps by the colours. We know many colorized photos, but these are not originals.
By the greys I used a mix of Luwtwaffe uniform, Russian Tank crew (from Panzer Aces), some blue, white and black. By reds I used Carmine and Rosa, all from Vallejo. I will share more info’s about details here on the block soon.
Our next release will be a Ronin like figure in Scale 54 mm. By painting and base building it was time to test a leaf puncher, a really smart tool to create more realistic trees. I chose a sycamore tree in its autumn form with yellowish leaves. I built the wood from wire and milliput, but the hardest point was how to make realistic twigs? First I used dried grass, later stronger wadding. The grass wasn’t so good idea. Next time I will look a thin dried plant with many branches and will add wadding at the end. For leaves the best material is the paper because it cans the glue drink in.
After the building process the painting was very easy. Airbrushed main colours and brush painted details, all with acrylics.
Many new products are coming in the next month as we earlier said. First one – or two, because it comes in Scales 1/9 and 1/16 too – will be the British Airborne Officer, Arnhem 1944. The boxart was just finished. We hope you like it.

The small one was painted by Gabor Szabó
Gábor is very busy this time, so his pictures are coming later.
In the First World War used the Austro-Hungarian Army many different colours by the uniforms. In the first part of the war was the blueish Hechtgrau the basic tone, and later comes the grey-green, or more grey (?) Feldgrau (not the same as the German uniform). But the basic tones had many shades, you can’t say this or this colour was the Hechtgrau or the Feldgrau. I tried here making a mix and presentation of the middle wartime uniforms. A trench scene shows the eastern front in 1916. I hope you like it and you can find more wip pictures on my Facebook site.
