So here you go. I had to remove the frog, part of the Bess, and of course whittle away at his hat device but here is a Cacadore skirmisher for my modest Portuguese Division in Volley & Bayonet. A few more dozen of these guys and I'm ready for a skirmish game of "This Very Ground" set in Portugal or Spain in 1808-09.
|The chopped down Bess came out well also. I probably could have put more detail into the hat decorations.|
|I like this pose. Like he's dashing for cover.|
|The picture shows some of the chewed up plastic where the frog used to be.|
|With the flocking my wife tells me the ground in parts of Portugal looks like this. You can't get mais perfeito authentic than that!|
Next up and in honor of "Stormin' Normin'" I decided to test out my Chocolate Chip Desert Camo for my up and coming Mogadishu Ranger platoon. All I had with an undercoat on was this German Panzergrenadier...So here you go, Fritz.
I need a few more black and white marks on it but the colors, which were what I was trying to test out, are the most important thing. While not exact, you get the idea for shades very well. The experiment was a success and I'm going to go with these colors for my "Mog" Rangers and Delta. Huzzah!
|Look past his kit and uniform and nationality...the camo looks great!|
|More black and white spots but otherwise the colors were a success|
