Carry on Up the ....

Yes I am sure you guessed and fondly recall Charles Hawtrey and the missing underpants and the shame of the "Devils in Skirts!". If none of that makes sense you are probably NOT from England.

So anyway today are 4 foundry Indian  Hill Tribesmen. These are painted for Matt and he says there are more to come as well, I already have another 6 started!

Colour wise I have been a little too bright on the first 10 so will tone the next few (after I finish the next 6) down a bit. But I was having such fun painting things that are colourful I could not resist!

Anyway "Up the Burpas an d down with the devils in skirts!"

  5. Very nicely done Clint; do I detect a certain comedy element in your brushwork on these ?

    1. Thank you Joe. There is no INTENDED comedy element in the painting, but they do blow up 3-4 times the size of real life on my Monitor so all the mistakes look HUGE to me!

    1. Thanks Andy. I think my favourite is probably Carry on Screaming! I should finish 6 more tonight then very briefly swap projects before coming back for more!

  7. Absolutely brilliant Clint and very tempting. I had recently heard that the new 'The Men that would be Kings' ruleset will have a section to use the Queen's Own 3rd Foot and Mouth Regiment!

    1. Thank you Michael. Matt did mention a new rule set coming out in the Autumn and I think it is the rules that you mention. The way I war-game the Queens Own 3rd foot and Moth sound like just my regiment.

    1. Thank You Matt, I feel that I have made them a little too colourful and will start to tone the next batch down, More muted colours.

    1. Thank you Simon. As mentioned above I think Carry on Screaming is my favourite, or spying, or cowboy! Not sure I do like so many of them.
