Paint Monkey WW1 German Uhlans.

 These are dismounted and not lance wielding WW1 German cavalry. Postie and Ray painted up the mounted versions and they therefore have different bases. Matt wanted my style bases so it game me great pleasure to do those bases for him. I did ask if he wanted some flowers on the bases and we agreed that a FEW with Poppy's would be most fitting hence the flash of Red on the bases.

As you can clearly see 6 figures in 3 different poses. There will be 12 in total and I will need them done by Sunday morning BEFORE I go to the club so with a busy weekend I should get them done. (fingers crossed)

Right then, no more chatter, time to get some paint slung on figures now.

Thanks for looking today and depending on when I get the next 6 finished may or MAY not be a group shot of the lot. Time constraints Blah blah blah!

 "Happy Thanks Giving" if that is part of your tradition across the pond. And Happy Thanks giving anyway anyway if not part of your tradition or if you are not even across the pond.

And A big thanks to the American Family who have invited my cousin to spend the day with them, She has had a hard year this year and it's nice to know strangers in another continent can be as kind and generous as to allow a Brit to spend a special day with them. So I for one am thankful for that.

Take care and will post again soon.

All the best Clint

  3. Nice job Paint Monkey. The splash of red on those bases is great.

    Now I'm off to have Thanksgiving with my In Laws. You have a good one too!

    1. Cheers mate. Poppy's are synonymous with WW1 and as I had some it just made sense. And Matt agreed as well which was very nice of him.

  7. Lovely looking WW1 Germans, Clint.
    I'm still looking for my Great War French for the painting challenge, they are most like in a box I haven't looked in yet! ;)
    I'm looking forward to seeing your fleet too!
    I have some Imperial and Chaos craft ready for Dec, but I doubt there is enough to match what you and Tamsin have prepared!

    1. I will only have 15-20 Starships in all different sizes. Tamsin will probably have more. Seriously if you want to join in I am sure that will not be an issue. And maybe Quality might be better than quantity.
      I have yet too start prepping them yet and there is a LOT of Prep to do!
      Thank you David.
      I shall look forward to seeing your French for I suspect I will have some to do at some point!

  8. A very nicely painted group of figures. The addition of the poppies on the bases was inspired. Great work!

  9. The Monkey strikes again the poppies are a great addition. Thanksgiving is the time for that sort of thing your cousin will become heavier to watch and see.

    1. Thank you Mathyoo. People seem to appreciate the poppies. To be honest they could be any red flower. I will have more of these next week.

  12. I was just about to say "Give the monkey a banana!", but then a thought struck me. Many artists throughout history have added their own little "note" to their works - there's a famous painter of steam trains who always drew a mouse somewhere in the scene. Perhaps you should start to put a banana on one model from each batch? It could be in someone's pocket or hand, or lying on the ground.

    Just a thought...
