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