And my last work... I couldn't decide where to put this. Is it an aircraft? In a fantasy world, yes. And this is dwarves' world so I've prefered to put this in the figures part. Sorry if I am wrong, and so please correct me. This GWS miniature's scale is 1/60ish as always. Painting this model was fun indeed.

Hello again Umay:

Looks like these "copter dudes" are flying over the
Swiss Alps! I'd be interested in your comments about
how you put these background graphics together for
your photo shoots. This particular one makes me think
it is a piece of original art work that you've painted.


Would you enlighten me? Imput, imput. . . .

Also, it would be interesting to be around when that
big, we're talkin' really BIG, canon is fired while in
flight. The recoil would be "rather dramatic" I'd say!

Hi Rick.. No, of course it is not an artwork that I painted! . To be honest I am very happy too with finding that poster at home just after finishing my figure. While looking for a picture to use as background, I found this poster which was given with the magazine "White Dwarf"(GWS) years ego. And what a coincidence, there are gyrocopters behind. I didnt know I'd had such a poster till then. I love using this kind of suitable pictures with my figures in my photos as long as I can find any(and dont have much ).

So this all about chance and sense of design.
