I actually finished this some time ago, but frankly wanted to get it over to Ma and Pa Strawhat's ASAP as we knew that Ma wouldn't be around too much longer. As such, I didn't have the option to get pictures (as soon as I finished sealing it, I went to bed, then boxed it up the next evening as soon as I got home from work and ran it out there). I grabbed Ma's phone one afternoon while I was over there waiting for hospice to arrive and took a few pictures. I had hoped that Ma would post them so I could grab them, but she didn't. The pictures are a little dark (I'm not real good at using other phones), but I think the idea comes across.
I want to give my girlfriend's parents a little gift this X-mas ( well a bit before that).
So I decided to make a little vignette of the Nativity Set.
I found this nice dome for 5 euros..
I had to skip the idea of the three Kings.
But my girl explained to me that they visited later, so it wouldn't be a problem to just use the Nativity set itself, a sheperd and a few animals.
Else it would get too crowded on the little wooden plate.
The Donkey and Oxen are supposed to keep Baby Jesus warm with their breath. So that's why they stand so close.
The Cow will be mutilated converted into an Oxen.
Here is the set up.
I might have to move them a little more forward to close the gap.

My final figure for 2016, Gabrielle by Bombshell. I slightly altered the position of her arm, and changed her stance by basing her on a step, so it looks more like she is running, rather than lunging. Really proud of her face, I used a magnifying glass in addition to my usual painting glasses, so I could get the detail.
