    Hi Dan,

    Outstanding work mate. Fine attention to detail and historical accuracy. A very different subject to the usual WW1 models. Lovely work from you Old Contemptibles.

    Thank you fella's.

    Besides obviously recommending this figure John McNenney at MilMinWh provides great service. I recently received a fig three days after placing my order. I would have been pleased with a UK company doing that but from the USA..... and I s'pose the Post Office helped a bit too so well done them :)

    This was the first time I painted a pair of old cobblers. :D

    Thanks everyone for such a favorable response! Glad you like 'em. Didn't John and Roger do a great job? :)

    John is casting the Landsturm now, so he'll be number 3 in the TOC line.

    Nice stuff Dan and good painting Roger! Nice to see different subject matter. :)

    Will you be bringing the originals to Chicago, Dan?

    Wendy - Many thanks for your kind comments! Unfortunately, Roger would have to part with the originals to allow me to take them to Chi. I'll ask. :)

    All the best,

    Dear Dan,

    Absolutely well done. You really make an effort on the accessories for your figures. A very unusual figure offering.

    Roger, really impressed by this figure when I first saw Dan building it. Think your painting brings it to life and enhances the whole character, you have done a lovely job on it.
    An excellent job by you both and with luck I will get to see it at Euro and will be sending for one shortly after.
