      Looks very nice. You have here what could be a part of a tutorial of how you paint :)

    • Those are very nice figures! :)

      They are certainly not what my mind tells me those soldiers looked like, but they have been formed by first Asterix, and then by sets from other manufacturers. Probably these figures are more exact and historical than those in my mind.

      One thing though some of the arms look very thin. They must be test models right?

      As usual, a very good paint job. I usually don't like to paint figures with the same shield and clothing color, but you make it work! I also have to give you bonus points for handpainted motifs. All in all very good.

      I recently had a look at this set myself. The sculpting is good, by which I mean details, but the figures a little flat. So not the best HäT set out there, but better than some of them out there... I mention Nubians, Sea People and Indians as examples of worse sets. So not the worst set either. Not something that lives up to Linear-A's current standard, but who does?

      Then let us not exaggerate. Yes, they are expensive: 24,95 a box on Linear-A's shop, if recent prices are taken into account. I see Mars for half that price, for 40 figures.

      My logic is: Better pay more for better figures, than less for worse figures. In a sense I am supporting figure makers in a place that they are hard to make, to keep the company alive, if I buy these, and at the same time getting ok or better figures...

      And I apologize for sounding bitter or such. I have gotten some bad news recently, and sleep has been an issue these many last days. Combination is not good for my mood...

      I am sorry Misteredd, you deserve some context. In some recent posts about Mars ancient figures, there were some comments about buying from manufacturers that made less than optimal figures, to support them, until they made better figures. I was against, because as I wrote, you have no guarantee that they make better figures later down the line. Now I see them saying that these are too expensive and there are too few. This was perhaps not proper of me, so I apologize for it.

    • cernief hat einen neuen Beitrag "Ultina Ratio Iberians - the lost set " geschrieben. 23.05.2024

      I see...

      So support Mars, but not Ultima Ratio. Please be consistent.

      Thanks for that piece of information - I had a look :)

      There is always the risk that a figure producer will see that they do not need to put in more effort to make better figures, or for that matter new figures. So no, I don't believe it is true that you should always support a figure manufacturer no matter the quality. If you see quality you can accept then you should buy. If you see something you can live with for a non-produced subject, maybe buy... If you believe they will make better figures, sure, buy... just know, you are making a one-sided deal. They have promised you nothing but the figures they've already made.

      I disagree... it is not a good set. It is painted very well though! :) It makes up for a lot of its shortcomings. :)

      And by not a good set I mean it is very flat, 2-dimensional and things seem engraved/etched, rather than having depth.

    • cernief hat einen neuen Beitrag "Linear-B 078, l'infanterie lourde Mithridatique." geschrieben. 11.05.2024

      Never seen these painted before. You've done a good job! :)

    • cernief hat einen neuen Beitrag "Recherche figurines MARS." geschrieben. 11.05.2024

      I see. :)

      Hope they (the figures) will turn out better than I fear :)

      Asterwargame? This store has thousands of figures.
      Take a look at this too: Super-Hobby (Poland).
      Fasmamodels.gr (Greece).


      Bonjour George.

      Merci de ces boutiques, j'irais voir.

      Celle que j'ai trouvé, c'est ici : https://www.plasticsoldiershop.com/


      I usually steer clear of stores that have a .com domain. The reason is that I am not sure it is European, and I would hate to pay import fees and such. However this does seem to be European (I think, Italian).

      May I ask why you would want to get Mars figures? As far as I recall they were not very good when they made those ancients?

    • cernief hat einen neuen Beitrag "Linear-A 020. Les Minoens 1650 - 1400 av. JC." geschrieben. 06.05.2024

      Yes, that is true. I have a tendency to think a bit too black and white (not on the figures, but in how I view how they should be painted.) I might be somewhat colored by the fact that I used quite a bit of time researching into how to paint mine. Naturally you have your way of seeing things, and come to your own conclusions. I am sorry if I came on as knowing everything :). I just had a vision in my head of how I would have wanted them painted myself, in my head. With the details you are capable of painting, and I am not, I thought it natural that you would have done that too. I guess that is the best praise I can say. That I expected you to fulfill the details I couldn't get myself :)

      :)

      I will have to live with a different interpretation ;)

    • cernief hat einen neuen Beitrag "Linear-A 020. Les Minoens 1650 - 1400 av. JC." geschrieben. 06.05.2024

      Here are the shields I am referring to

      [[File:Shields on wall.jpg|none|fullsize]]

      Maybe not completely black spotted in white, but more color than white.

    • cernief hat einen neuen Beitrag "Linear-A 020. Les Minoens 1650 - 1400 av. JC." geschrieben. 06.05.2024

      [[File:Shield.jpg|none|fullsize]]

      The shield I am talking about.

      [[File:Dendra.jpg|none|fullsize]]

      The Dendra armor, notice the red in between the armor pieces.

      [[File:Minoan Armor.jpg|none|fullsize]]

      The "royal guardsman", and his armor.

      [[File:Minoan spear.jpg|none|fullsize]]

      The shields of these soldiers show that there was different styles of cowhide used. I had overlooked those. But the images I looked at, from paintings on the walls on Crete tell another story.
