Now this does strike me as one of Ged's most imaginative recent releases for Gringos40 (unless we include the Tonkin War range of course!).

That man Lasalle, himself. I imagine based on the painting I found. This figure is 28mm of course and currently at the "green" stage. But all the extras are to be included as a mini diorama.


What a change to see him in any pose but the classical rearing horse, right arm raised, with his pipe in hand!

Of course, you do know that Hagen do a standing Lasalle in 1/72

But agreed. This is nice and unusual

Excellent Ged!!

I think we all, increasingly, accept that what comes out of Germany is usually far better cast, proportioned, animated, imaginative, cheaper, easier painted….but apart from that….what has 1/72 ever done for us 28mm folk?


Except make us weep……

Amen Deadhead. Amen.

and I still recall being an altar boy dressed in the full rig for the occasional funeral in a Catholic Church in North London….in the late 60s….

and for him we would have said;

"Requiescat in pace"

as we did for my dad.

Gosh, very nice. That braid looks like it required far more skill and patience than I'll ever possess!

Personal logo deadhead Supporting Member of TMP15 Aug 2018 1:55 p.m. PST

The braid is easy. Pah….not the real challenge here.

Any Artist will tell you is that of still life, is a glass structure, that is the sign of an expert. (see the jug in front of him…wow)

But, even then, if you see a Dutch still life master, you are seeing the image from than one fixed direction, through the frame.

Modellers must acheive that in a third dimension. The highlights cannot be done, the same way.

I cheat, with 3D figures, when later I post in 2D images, because I know where to highlight


Trust me. It does get complex….

Awesome.

I did ask Ged for more details as to the artwork and got this response;

"The painted work is by Stephen Maughan, a splendid Napoleonic painter and animator who enjoys putting together 28mm vignettes.

I have some of my figures painted by him in my personal collection

His speciality is the Napoleonic period."
