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
