Hello,
I am doing a small spanish conquistador against a native to land any figure suggestions? I have already looked at the red lancer. Any Diroramas like this before? thanks

Hi modelmaker9,

Sounds like an interesting vignette.

Tell us a bit more about what scale you'd like to work in? Also, should the native be of any particular region/country/indiginous tribe?

EDIT: Whooopsie... just saw "San Salvidor"

Thanks for repliing. I was thinking about a larger scale then 1/35. Maybe a 120mm figures. I havent worked with this size yet. Im used to 1/35. Should be interesting. They are about, what four inches tall or five maybe?? I think i might have to modify the native because it is pretty rare. thanks

120mm Conquistadors may be a bit on the rare side.... if you're used to working in 1/35 (which is 50mm) why not think about 54mm? Not much difference between 1/35 and 54mm, and there are plenty more 54mm figgies available that 120mm

my friend working on 120mm especiallyona project with more than one figure might be tiring for you . painting that big figures is a risk to expose your skills and itneeds much time due to the biggersurfaces. I d suggest 54mm that is a scale with many available figures . Check on the brands of Art Girona and FM Beneito for similiar themes in figures and i think you will be satisfied

Ok, 54mm sounds good if those are more available. Thanks for the help
