The mules are brilliant and would grace any supply train.

The cavalrymen are lovely too although I was wondering if the prone chap’s legs were a bit short resulting in a big bottom?

Just a minor observation amongst the pleasure of seeing so much creative genius on display.

Best wishes,

Chris

dear Chris ,thank You for compliment and observation,I will take your comment into consideration(about chap's and bottoms)

It is difficult to find the courage to give constructive criticism but if you don’t mind, I would say that the painting of your lying 7th cavalryman behind his horse could have been better. His pants are a bit flat and a few darker folds would easily remedy that. I would also say that your work deserves a more beautiful background and groundwork but I fully understand that you might want everyone’s attention to be firmly on your minis and a more eye-catching surround might just detract from the beauty of your miniatures . And you wouldn’t be wrong!
Congratulations for another stunning piece of work. Thank you for showing

Dear K.B.
thanks again.If the criticism is constructive and useful there is no need for courage.They are always welcome if they are well-intentioned.As for the background, these projects are not finished, so for now I don't give much importance

Dear Jan,thanks for You constant support and kind words.You're right, I can't stop. It's like a drug for me. Ever since I was a child, I've dreamed of being able to create the things I want.Finally I was given that opportunity, but it would have been nicer if it had happened earlier. So now I use all my free time for it.

I often look at her posts and am always amazed by her ability to create such beautiful characters. Unfortunately, my limited English can hardly reflect my mood. Sorry !

Your output never ends, dms, :yeah: :yeah:
The title starts to become misleading. It should say "All what we ever wanted to know about the Wild West - and never dared to ask from miniature figures producers".
Beautiful creations. Waiting for your painting.
I still think you would have great success in selling all the printing files - since you don't want to start your own shop.
Greetings
Michael

Thanks Michael
it's hard for me to decide to sell because the very thought of wasting time packing, waiting in line and everything that goes with it scares me.But that doesn't mean it won't happenImageImageImageImageImage

GERONIMO or should that have been Sitting Bull or even Crazy Horse. Delightful as usual …..
Ps/ I think the thing I love most about your work is the beautiful loose painting of lines, circles, handprints etc on your Indian horses. You have an incredible feel for the period dms……. I’ve said it before I know but keep up the good work…… and I understand your reluctance to commercialize your art.
