Oooh I'm a really big fan of Bosch's  and Breughel so I really need to get those as well ;D

I think you've done a splendid job, they fit really well into Withtown!!

Thanks, lads, glad you like them :)

Wave 3 was released on the Eureka Miniatures late last year and wave 4 will be soon after Salute.

That's good news, looking forward to it!

I wanted to have some sort of a carnival scene, the guys walking down the street and all the citizens looking at them. For that reason I've tried to put as much as possible of the citizens into the picture without hiding the main protagonists of the scene. I think it did work quite well. But now enough of words, let's have some pictures:




This comment speaks of a problem I have with macro photography and everything coming into focus at the same time. While I do in many ways enjoy photography, I rather spend the time painting and building. Therefore I generally go with standard settings which makes my pictures look very flat.

Cheers, gents :)

You're right, making photos is very time consuming. I usually spend about at least 3-4 hours (sometimes more) for every LPL entry. Finally ending with 10-20 versions of the scene and then I spend a few days to decide which picture to take  :D  You can see at least three of the versions in the pictures above.

These are truly some nightmarish miniatures. The style is perfectly imitated and recreated in three dimensions.

The masterful painting just adds to the awesomeness.
