Von Tschatschke Photo Update. . .


Here's a picture showing my progress on General von Tschatschke as of earlier this afternoon before I had to break to give Paul his bath. There are still a few things I need to paint, and a few other items I'd like to touch up before the two coats of glossy "varnish" (Future/Klear), but this is where we're headed. It's almost time to start thinking about the uniform to issue the General's ADC, one Captain Alphonse von Pfeffernuesse. Charge!

Hi Stokes!

Flamboyant hardly does the ol' boy justice. My eyes still have a Peptol-Bismal pink afterglow.

Coming along nicely. The white gloves are a nice touch. The horse seems rather plain though for this rider. I would've thought he'd go on a white horse or maybe a palomino, possibly a light strawberry roan - something light-colored yet distinctive.

Ah, but the General and his horse are not quite finished. Patience, patience. . .

Me too. My school colour was pink and I've loved the colour ever since! Great work, Stokes.

Best wishes

The gentleman cuts an elegant figure indeed! He'll add tone to any battlefield he cares to grace.

Another vote for pink. A politician here in the UK has been lambasting parents for dressing their girls in pink. Bonkers. Bound to be a po faced puritan. I especially like pink socks in the same shade which I call cardinal pink. Is it cerise?

PS Back to soldiers I spotted on TMP a range of 20mm germanic rural buildings the other day which may be of interest. I think they were called Byzantium models.

I figure that Von Tschatschke must be TOUGH . . . and have huge cojones . . . just imagine the flack he's had to endure with his color choice.

I find myself actually LIKING this fellow already. I look forward to your further painting touches (particularly with the horse -- who does look a bit dull in comparison).

Pink and Green seem to go together for some reason.
