Prussian 3rd Garrison Regt. Update. . .

 

Still a few small things to do, including apply fleshtone to a left hand on an officer that I somehow missed at some point plus lace on the drummers and officers , but we're very close to the glossing stage.


Lots of painstaking work to clean up edges, highlight folds, and touch up various bits and pieces the last few evenings.  My trusty little Sony Cybershot, I fear, has gone to that big electronics place in the sky and no longer seems to be working.  Well, I've had it since 2013, and small electronics don't last forever, so I cannot complain.  

With that little hiccup in mind, I snapped today's shot with my iPhone, brightened, and cropped it in Fotor before sharing it here.  Again, the blue is not quite so bright in reality, but the auto-improve, or whatever they call it, makes for nice bright photographs in which everything shows up.  

Not long before these are done, and The Young Master was suitably please when I asked him to have a look a few minutes ago.

A fine body of men ! They'll look trim and ready for action once the bases are done and they reach the table :)
I like the colour scheme Stokes. It could have turned out badly but they look very smart, well done.

A splendid looking unit, Stokes. Now for those flags after the final touching up... ;-)

Cheers,

David.

Lately, There Are Days When I Feel Like My Head Will Explode. . .

  A nd I am not just talking about the frightening state of the world just now, but then we've been moving ever further into this general area since at least late 2016. No, I am referring specifically to the continuing issues I seem to have with using Blogger.  Access to my blogs, even with a recovery phone number, has become increasingly sporadic and frustrating when it comes to troubleshooting what the problem(s) might be.  I think I might move to Word Press or Wix before long and include a link to the new premises here for visitors who might like to find me in my new digital digs. Of this, more later. Lots and lots of cross-country skiing, however, has kept me sane this winter.  We even managed a final quick tour at a small, local area last Saturday before temperatures jumped from the teens to the mid-50s Fahrenheit Sunday and melted all of our lovely snow here in Mid-Michigan.  I have not skied this much since Norway in 1999-2000 in any case, so no complaints.
