    1. Thanks.
      I´ll have to set up a scenario for the rest of the set. Fixing the oars to the canoeists is virtually impossible though

      I think that sometimes it works better if I paint something a bit different to my usual stuff, the change makes me see things a bit differently.

  11. Excellent painting and some characterful bods

  12. These are nice figures and I like the burros as well. You know what would be a cool addition and I know you could do it. Do a conversion of a deer and have it trussed and hanging upside down from a pole to represent the kill they made.

  13. I hate to bother you with another question but you do a lot of terrain building and you know a lot.

    I'm having trouble with scale when making exterior faces of buildings. Will using fixed ratio's work. Let's say if I know that a man of average height is one sixth the sie of a standard dwelling can I then translate this into cm and mm and have it work. Also will shooting in macro throw all this off given the difference in mag of the shot being taken and the distance I place the figure from the building. And then what about if I put in sidewalks and place thet figure on a street in front of the building. Is there a standard equation you use.

    My question mark key is broken so that's why my questions aren't ending with them.

    1. Thanks Scott.
      Some of the sets have been re-released under the brand name Nexus..unfortunately not all and not a couple of the really good ones like the Outlaws set.

  17. I love this set Paul and how you set up the shots. The way Dora and Dottie are scurrying away, it looks like they might have smelled a bear!

  18. An excellent little set of figures, I love the dull colours you've used and the poses are all great as well.
