Dan Moore’s Mauser T Gunner Vignette

Dan Moore from Australia builds the JSM Mauser T Gunner Vignette. Part of Dan’s own text to this figure and painting – the pictures speak for themselves:

20161127-20tg-2 Dan MooreThe figure is based on an officer of the 27th Prussian Reserve Infantry Regiment who participated in a defensive action during the Beaucamp-Cambrai offensive of September 1918. The figure was base-coated in Tamiya acrylics via airbrush, with oils used for blending, shadows & highlights. The head was finished in various Vallejo shades. All weapons and field equipment were slightly enhanced where required & painted using Tamiya shades. The basic plaster Vignette base was used, with pigments and foliage added. The poppies were fabricated from stretched sprue & crepe paper. The stakes & barbed wire were also scratch made.

4 JSM Kits from Konstantin Kapitonov

Konstantin Kapitonov from Russian has sent pictures of 4 different JSM kits he has assembled and painted – 2 of the kits are combined into one vignette. I love the colourful appearance of these photographs and especially the rusty metal.

The all-round effect of these small dioramas is just wonderful. He tells me that he always uses water-soluble polyvinyl acetate tempera paint. The full set of these pictures are shown on the JSM Gallery page. I look forward to more of his work.

Avant Garde! France 1916 – 54mm Vignette

Another vignette from Holland, this time from model-maker and designer Roger Hurkmans. I believe the photos speak for themselves. I particularly like the groundwork detail and movement captured in this scene.

He has used some of the new JSM 54mm spare parts, which are due for release later this summer. I look forward to more projects from Roger.

The First 1:10th Scale JSM Bust – Chasseurs à Pied

29BUC 529BUC 629BUC 129BUC 7

Welcome to the first 1:10th scale JSM bust – Chasseurs à Pied – French Light Infantryman 1914/15. This simple, but hopefully interesting character is the first bust to be produced by me and will shortly be released. The kit contains just 3 parts; the head, upper torso with top part of arms and a 6mm diameter brass tube for mounting. The idea and reference material are from the wonderful book Nous Etions Des Hommes by Jacques Moreau (French language). A Newsletter will be sent out to all as soon the bust is released.
