|I have painted two Teddy models in one month after having both for two decades...|
As promised: more 20+ year old figures finally seeing completion! I think Jon and I last go our forces on the same table for this period in 2002. I initially knocked out some landing parties, infantry and artillery and then kind of petered out. (In my defense I spent 2004-5 on an involuntary Southwest Asian vacation and was a bit distracted from the hobby.)
I bought a bottle of Contrast "Ultramarine Blue" a few weeks ago to see how well it work for Union uniform coats and this kinda happened:
14 more Rough riders in skirmish order brings the total up to 36. (Finally completing the bag I bought so many years ago.)
I also finally finished off the Gen Wheeler figure. He was one of my favorite characters in the TBS Rough Rider's movie for this one exchange:
Wheeler: "We got the Yankee's on the run boys!"
Aide: "Sir, those are Spanish Regulars and they are withdrawing in good order"
Wheeler: "Don't ruin it boy!"
After completing the two command models I also noted that they do make for an interesting vignette :
|"Sir, I respectfully disagree"|
