Thank you, Ian!

Some weeks ago I took part on the "Give Away" on The Blog With No Name from Ian. He was doing this, and i will use his own words: "Well it's finally here, the blogs first post ever was exactly two years ago today and this my friends is the 500th post in those two years. I'd like to think they landed at the same time by carefull planning but accident had more influence than design. But such milestone can not go without some form of celebration so lets get started with....." The rest of his text and pictures you can read here. I first joined in for some brushes. But as a man called Ray (you know that man from "Don't throw a 1") wanted them to so we had to look for something else.

Lucky enough for me Ian added something to the "Give Away" and that one catched my eye. The fantastic figure from "Salute 2011". A Confederate Cavalry man from the American Civil War. Okay it's a 28mm figure, but I've painted some others, so I had a go for it. And guess what, I won it.

Doesn't he look fantastic?


Actually he's on the painting table, but no pictures of that yet. I will show him when he is finished. Just to show what a beautifull sculpt this is some more pictures.





But this isn't the end of this story. As we were sharing some information by e-mail, we started talking about the 6mm figures, which he paint. Excellent by the way! I talked him about a little project I wanted to do (can't say here what it is, the wrong person could read it!), and asked him what the best figures were in 6mm. Then he offered me some figures and sended them together with the Salute figure to me. Just have a look what he sended me!

Seven Napoleonic Officers on horse!


They even have seperate arms! In that in 6mm!



The big man himself!


For this figures I made him a promise. If he ever need some 1/72 scale figures, he first have to ask me. And I will do everything to help him. Even when I don't have them myself! Don't forget it Ian!

SO A BIG THANK YOU IAN FOR SENDING ME THESE FIGURES!!!!!!

  3. Nice post about the friendship on blogger (and somewhere else!). That's something which makes the life better !
    The 6mm are awesome !! painting Nappies is crazy (err ....) but in 6 mm it's pure madness !
    The 28mm figure is excellent ! You will have a lot of fun to paint it, I'm sure.

  8. I have that great figure myself for my ACWm I can't agree with you about Ian because because he's a brush teasing monkey!

    1. Thanks Fran! I still think Ray had something to do with the brushes he gave to you and not Ian! ;-) :-D

  12. Those are wonderful figures; I can't believe the detail on the 6mm. I bought some 6mm miniatures in the late '80's, but didn't like them; now however...
