Von Kallweitschen and Von Gedacht Are Now Finished.

Ok, here are Major Anders von Gedacht and General Hermann von Kallweitschen all touched up (black lining fixed on the former and white cuffs/black lining added on the latter). Not Dallimore-style painting by any means, but nice, simple "unfussy" painting to borrow John Preece's term. Perfect for my tastes!

And here's the star of his own show, the General himself. Von Kallweitschen knows almost nothing about military theory or practice, but he'll talk for hours about how others get it wrong -- without ever asking the advice or opinion of those who are more experienced on the field of Mars, for example Major von Gedacht or Colonel O'Malley. For all of Kallweitschen's shortcomings, though, his gold-braided red waistcoat looks pretty good now. What a dandy he is!

von Kallweitschen looks like the very model of a modern major general! ;-)
Some of these minis sort of "express" their own personality, don't they? :-)
Your descriptions are very fitting.

I like your painting style and those esteemed gentlemen look grand indeed. The Kinks were a great band - interestingly some of their old tunes have been covered and use on TV here recently for Ad's etc. Songs like "Village green preservation society" and the more obscure "I want to marry a light-house keeper". Clever lyrics.

Fussy or not they do look the part.

I'd be more than happy for them to lead my troops.

...von Kallweitschen also sounds like a lot of wargamers I know! :o))))
