Well my friends I received the last figures that I wanted for the long awaited diorama yesterday and painted them up last night. They are a new release from Dark Alliance called Anubis Army ALL72053. (I can see the auto correct bringing you down on that title) and are really well done, I call them my dog face boys! Anyway it was a quick paint job so please excuse the sloppy painting but I am in a rush due to the approaching our Winter and I do have a fair bit of water to pour. I don’t like doing it when it’s cold.
The set consists of ten poses which you will see, I haven’t tried to boil any but I can see that there is potential to change quite a few figures which I do on all sets that I use. If you are wondering why I wanted these guys on the show it’s because I feel they will mix in well with the Mummies even though I have gone to green for a change.
Well a quick report on how things are going, first I have completed both bases. This diorama is going to be a bit like the Castle one, first up it will be two separate bases that can be joined, with the chance that further down the track it could expand to maybe four!! I will have to wait and see how many figures I can fit on the first two (I have painted up about six hundred again!).
I’m back, I’ve just stuck the Temple on to base number two and it seems pretty good, so I’m feeling like it could work, but placing the figures is always the bit that makes me nervous, so we will see soon enough!
Thank you all for your patience, fingers crossed I hope I can reward you all with a final show very soon, Cheers Pat.
