Re: Tyros 332 BC

Hello Mr C.

That’s the spirit!

These look fantastic and the water sparkle is so realistic I want to get my dive gear on!

Best wishes,

114 Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Collins Zouaves, Zouaves d’Afrique The Zouave regiments add a splash of colour as well as dash to a Union army in my opinion. Two units engaged at the original action, Baxter’s fire Zouaves and the 9th New York, Hawkins Zouaves were fairly sombrely dressed. Howeve...

Hi Roland.

You make a good point and your civilians for Solfrino emphasise it.

Brilliant work.

I shall look into ochre for my next batch after the Zouaves.

Best wishes,

Chris

Re: ANTIETAM 17th SEPTEMBER 1862

Hello Mr C. As always, good points. You are like my fairy Godmother with words of wisdom ! Yes the black is much better. The green bases are indeed nostalgic I suppose.

Re: Tyros 332 BC

Hello Mr C and apologies for missing your question. You make a good point but I was thinking of the rosy light that makes the Mediterranean such a joy. I used pink tissue to diffuse the light source for the sunset at Ligny. I seem to remember you spotted the diffused light straight away as usual. An...

Re: ANTIETAM 17th SEPTEMBER 1862

Overwhelming generosity My very good friend Thomas Mischak has sent me an early Christmas present and I am overwhelmed! Thomas is primarily a Napoleonics man, but has spent his time and money helping me with my Antietam project. I am genuinely overwhelmed by his generosity as a fellow modeller and h...
