I've hit a bit of a lull in terms of new things to post. Still painting, but nothing quite ready yet. Here's some filler, flats that I painted some 20 + years ago. I have to say, my style then was a bit blander when it comes to colors and less proficient in shading. Still, better eyesight and steadier hands made for more precise work so there has been a gradual tradeoff over the years.
The photo on top and the one below are figures from the WSS staff officers set from Golberg. They closed the shop several years back, not sure what has become of the molds.
Here's a set of Austrian dragoons, the editor is Siegbert Wagner. He had a lot of WSS sets, as I recall you could get the horse in standing, walking/trotting and galloping poses. I don't recall why I opted for this static group.
I liked dealing with Wagner. Although he spoke no English, thus in that pre-internet era everything was done by means of sending letters, obtaining catalog sheets then sending international money orders. I don't know what has become of Herr Wagner as I believe he was already a mature gentleman at that time. I also have his set of 300 WSS uniform plates, black and white line drawings with German text. Again, these pre-date the ease of buying the Hall CD's although they had a charm of their own. If anyone is interested, I could post a few examples.
Here's a set Austrian infantry advancing, Kieler figures.
