Matt gave me some British to paint. World War one British. I have asked him and he said they were a mixture of companies so I cannot tell you which figure relates to which company, so hard luck if you want to find a specific figure. He also gave me a couple painted by Ray Rousell for me to try and colour match. I have not shown those as I do not want to have a comparison made, that would be neither fair to Ray nor myself.
Firstly some signallers, 3 figures I believe each from different companies or at least different sculptors. The one in the middle is a much rougher sculpt than the other two but he's waving his flags and seems happy to be doing so. While the one on the right has his flags furled and also carries a rifle, while the others are unarmed. To me this waving flags malarkey strikes as one painting a "Shoot Me First" sign on them but I guess when the wireless is not present one has to adapt and use what is available. Still it does not strike me as the safest occupation!
I am really not sure what Matt will do with this one either but he did mention some VBCW Anglican forces. So I guess they will benefit from a Vicar. Actually without being glib I think most forces would given the lack of atheists on the battlefield. he was a terribly nice figure to paint though and I thought sunglasses might suit him better than prescription spectacles for Myopia. I think I am right in saying this may be the first ever WW1 Vicar I have painted.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for popping by. I am just finishing 3 more British WW1 figures so you may expect them in a couple more days.
All the Best and TTFN Clint
