Batavian uprising

 Patrick created a new diorama for the museum projects of Mules of Marius. If you want to rent a diorama for an exhibition, they are your men.

More at Facebook

And some photos, I made myself on my last visit in the museum

Dioramica 2024

 In September my friend and partner with Blackwatch-Miniatures is organizing the 4th "Dioramica".

See the details at the homepage of the club

The sad thing is, he told me because of missing space, I can't create a diorama over 2x7 meters. 

Well, in my eyes just a vignette:-) I have to think about it, what to do.

There will be a bring & buy as well as twice as much exhibitors as we had last time. 

Beside this, there are many new dioramas in the museum itself. 

Here some photos, a mixture of the first three exhebitions, just to give you a taste of what you will see. 

I hope to see many of you there, this is not a fair for buying simply plastic figures for the usual prices, but a meeting of hobbyfriends who show their work, talk about our hobby, having some beers and barbeque and simply having fun.

Beside this, in my eyes a bring & buy is much more interesting. Here I hope to get some old figures, maybe painted stuff and old books.

Some nice ACW Conversions

 Our hobbyfriend Ralf Guntermann sent me some photos of his collection. Here a few great conversions from the "good old times",when we had to create conversions ourselves.

Today with 3d-technic you can nearly have everything which is good on one side, but I remember the evenings when we sat down with a knife, "killed" some figures and created new ones. OK, I never tried the Airfix magazine idea of Chinese cavalry, made with a lot of paper etc.:-)

My favourites of his photos first  - Louisiana Tigers

Upper body - ACW figures

Baggy trousers - Esci muslim warriors

Gaiters - Esci Austrian infantry

the rest - simply Milliput:-)
