Hi friends. The vignette comes from Andrea Miniatures and is 54 mm. It is an old one (from 1996) but I liked the scene. I added some accesories from Plusmodel. Everthing is painted in acryllics and oils. Hope you like it.

Great vignette.
Looks like Laurel and Hardy.
Thanks for sharing.

Looks just great- nice change from all "serious" scenes. It's kinda funny but thing that caught my attention initially were... potatoes in pot (?). Very nicely done.

Hi Alguhan,

Very nice vignette. I agree with Gary, looks like Laurel and Hardy

Again, nice job!

Hi Bro,
Your painting skills really are improving so fast and good. I liked the composition and painting of the vignette very much. I dont know it is my eyes or not but the legs of the rooster looked overscale to me.
bestest regards and congrats

Thanks bro.
Not only the rooster's legs but all of him is a bit overscale. And it is from tamiya's livestock set, 1/35. I wanted to take it away from the scene but my wife liked it there and wanted to stay there. You know... she said so and the rooster remains there

A wonderful scenery Alguhan. All over very well executed.

I'm sure the Laurel and Hardy resemblens is quite intentional. Reminds me of the laundry scene in Laurel and Hardy in the French foreign legion.

Really nice work on this vignette.
Even though it's a military subject it still shows something different.

Great scene. I noticed the hairy arms. How did you get that effect?

Will you do a part two with the sleeping guy paying the price?

Its a very well painted and attention grabbing vignette Alguhan. The various colors bounce off each other very well. For me its the clothes on the line and the poor piggy struggling to get the potatoes. The piggy is really well painted and nice little details on the cook's arms.

Thank you all my friends for your nice comments.

Charles, the hair on the arms are by drybrushing the black oil paint.
And a second part would be nice but it is better to leave you all to imagine it. :-)
