"Both armies stood still and watched.
Every soldier held his breath as the ground was shaking.
Watched the gathering of mighty Goliath and young Davidé
as they prepared to duel to death on this ice cold morning ..."

Model of Goliath: Germanic Warrior, Pegaso Models, 75 mm
Model of Davidé: Origin Arts, 28 mm

Last photo shows the project in my cabinet, beside many other models so you can see
its size compared to the others.

Hope you like it. I did. I am preparing an article about this project for the future of Massive Voodoo.
Stay tuned.

Keep on happy painting!
Best Wishes
Roman

  • Yohan_Leduc

  • John Margiotta "BloodASmedium"PLUS

    Once again I stand ashamed that I cannot vote platinum.

    • Roman Lappat, "jarhead"PLUS

      No need to feel ashamed of that. Voting is not the most important thing in miniature painting. Painting is.

  • SergeyPopovichenkoPLUS

    Amazing work! Brilliant idea and implementation. Stunning work with color. You great know how to use cold and warm colors on figure. It’s hard for me. And you’re always surpris with originality of ideas.

    • Roman Lappat, "jarhead"PLUS

      Thank you Sergey. I am learning about colors each single day. I can only recommend to do some quicker projects with a focus on studying a special topic. Not with the goal to have a masterpiece at the end but with the goal to understand and learn. That’s how I do with smaller projects and then I think I am able to put the gained knowledge into bigger projects. Happy that you like it! Thank you for your comment!

  • Anthony Wang

    love the composition and the juxtaposition of the giant and woman…first time I’ve seen contrast by scale!

  • Daniel

    I like this one very much.. lately im an not motivated in painting, but this piece might geie me a little push into the right direction as many ideas arise from this..

    Kudos to you, sir!

  • JGREEN

    Fantastic!  If I may ask, what colors do you use for the blue/green tone on the lower half of Goliath?

    Jason

    • Roman Lappat, "jarhead"PLUS

      Sure: I used tourquise there, which in fact is a mix of blue/green. I used several brands, here and there you can find blue ink by Scale 75 Inktensity, but very dilluted, GW’s Hawk Tourquise, Golden Acrylics Tourquise and if I want to have it darker I added a drop of Dark Sea Blue or Black. Of course I did not use them pure, always added to the color they would appear in (for example skin).

      I recommend not thinking in color brands. Paint what you want to see and use colors that are available to you!

  • Thorsten Wachtmeister, "Scar"PLUS

    Woohooo… you finally finished it! Since the day of my first private practice I´m waiting to see it finished. There is always the right time for the right miniature somewhere in the future… and you did well to wait for the right time. I really like it a lot. The mood and atmosphere are splendid!

    By the way: Your output these days is really breaththaking!!! Thumbs up!

    • Roman Lappat, "jarhead"PLUS

      Thank you Thorsten. I looked at this giant so often in the past years and never had the right moment, but I always had to remember good days spent together. Thanks, I am really happy that you can see that even long stories can have a happy end!

  • Patrick Kamsma

    Great idea putting a 75 and 28mm mini together. This secene works great. Amazing cold tones.
