Now presenting you PINEAPPLE MINIATURES:
This were I enter. I´m a fan of the battle of Buçaco since the first time my father took me to visit that museum when I was some 10 years old or so. Since then, with many time gaps in between, i´m a regular visitor to that museum and I like to copy the books I have on the subject and offer them to the museum, so that its staff can inform the visitors about what really happened.
I´ve also visited the battlefield itself countless times, and I have great fun finding the smallest places of the battle and comparing them to the 1910 photos of Chambers and such, both in Sula and Santo António do Cântaro.
French Light infantry. Same text as above also applies.
Cascais 19th regiment (already made 3 of those) charging the french at Sula. Many transformed figures also.
To speed up painting I had to have a line production system: gluing figures to strips of card; black priming and then paaaaaaaiiiiinting by hand...
First batch to be sent to the Museum.
Already at the Museum...
Mrs Cecília placing them for sale.
First sale, Cascais 19th regiment charge, sold to a nice guy from Lisbon...
