This is the most recent mini I finished. Again in my favorite scale (1/72nd), and again a little figure swap project, this time for my good friend and creative powerhouse Andreas - who gave me a beautiful and tiny samurai figure in exchange.

For these exchange projects I like to create figures and scenes that are somehow connected to the person I build them for. For this one, I was heavily inspired by the golden autumn light that I saw all around me these last two or three weeks. And since Andy is a proud son of the Bavarian region of Franconia, I wanted to portray a proud Frankish warrior walking through the autumny woods of his home, some time in the early 4th century A.D. (which was when the Franks were supposedly mentioned in Roman texts for the first time).

And speaking of Romans: A big thank you hug goes out to my jungle brother Roman for taking these wonderful pictures! I am sure you can see the difference between them and my usual stuff. But I will learn and improve!

Thanks and best,

D.

    A marvellous and moody piece of work again, David! Terrific that on this tiny base you’d even found some room for a pond to make part of the scenery :)

      Thanks, Martin! Happy that you like it - the little piece of water was fun - but I *really* enjoyed making the tree!
