Hallo Planeteers

    after beeing an anonymus planeteer for 2 years, i agreed with myself to sign in to this great forum.
    I have been in modelling (tanks, airplanes...) since my youth (long time ago) and was also always fascinated by this tiny figures especially of the napoleonic period, so i switched to figure painting.
    As you can see on my avatar i also had the luck to be a reenactor with the K.u.K. Infantrieregement No.3 Erzherzog Karl with the drill reglement of 1809 till i had to quit because of health problems. So i also smelled the musket smoke and the feeling to make a bayonet charge.....(not comparable with reality).
    So one can understand my affinity to napoleonics. (nevertheless i also try other periods :) )

    I want to learn and to improve my abilities and in know i am here on the right place.

    So again, a hello to all of you.

    PS: i have enclosed some of my paintings.

    Hi Christian, and welcome to Planet Figure (finally) as a member. Clearly you have a lot of experience as a re-enactor that will be helpful to many of the Napoleonic fans here. Thanks for sharing your pics with us.
