Re: ANTIETAM 17th SEPTEMBER 1862

Artillery conversions The choice of artillery teams and gunners on the market is a bit restricted in my opinion. The Revell , Stretlets and Imex are good. The Speira figures very nice and Massimos figures are lovely. I have some SHQ guys which are nice too. Unfortunately the Italieri figures are all...

Re: Der Schrecken des Krieges, Galgenbaum...

In my opinion an excellent rendition of the ‘dreadful ‘ painting of the execution tree. The figures are superb, the painting excellent, the tree is magnificent and the composition really pulls this terrible scene together. Personally the the last picture is the best as the light is not so intense. A...

Re: Vikings Reloaded

This is getting better and better.

The waterway shot with the bridge is fantastic.

A real story developing here.

Best wishes,

Re: MARÉCHAL BESSIÈRES’ LAST RECONNAISSANCE PATROL – MAY 1st, 1813

Very nice indeed.

I read that this poor fellow got hit by a ricocheting cannonball off a wall.

His comrades thought it a great death!

Napoléon did not but apparently paid off his debts accrued by his mistress and looked after his children.

Fascinating stuff.

Best wishes,

Chris

Re: Keltische Krieger

Hi Egbert.

I do not know much about Celts but I do know a fantastic landscape when I see one.

The waterfall is excellent and I am sure the finished article, as always, will look wonderful.

Best wishes,

Chris

Re: Tyros 332 BC

Hello Mr C! Just a thought. Would it perhaps be easier to model the blade and poles separately ? You could perhaps have a little wire extending from the pole that could ‘mate’ with a hole in the blade section so when glued it made a stronger bond than just butt jointing. Der Feldmarschall thought th...

Re: C'est à vous c'te belle lance ?

Modelling perfection has been achieved here in my opinion. The effect is to trick the mind into thinking that this is real. Marvellous. The composition, story telling and modelling all come together in a realistic and believable setting. The imagination behind this is outstanding. I love the photogr...
