Off the Work Bench

I was recently given a Pegaso 54mm Comanchero by a guy who didn’t consider himself to be a figure painter. Although my American Civil War diorama is very near completion I thought I would have a break from 28mm figures and paint it. It has been a while since I have painted a 54mm figure and it surprised me how big it was!

An enjoyable project and a welcome distraction but back to finishing my diorama.

Is it just me or am I the only one who has more ideas on what to do next than I have years left to live to complete them?!

  1. This looks really great. I’d never be able to make a 54mm look as detailed as you. As for your comment on ideas: painfully true. As I’m making a diorama over the course of a few weeks I end up getting excited about 10 other ideas along the way.

    Looking forward to seeing your next completed diorama!


    1. Glad I’m not the only one who thinks that! As for painting 54mm figures, if I can do it so can anyone else. Always happy to help if you need any pointers on equipment or technique (it was one of my aims in setting up this blog) but truly I’m still learning too. Am about to put up some images of my now completed ACW diorama, hope you like it!
