Thanks all.

The officers are synchronizing their watches as the crews rest for the next bit of work.

It is amazing what new technology can bring to the hobby.

Les Davis has been scanning figures and 3d printing them for us to use as part of some on-line FB tall tales. I have had great fun with that and can post pics someplace else if interested.

All the fun led me to a company in the UK called modelu3d
https://www.modelu3d.co.uk/
They recently scanned some ww1 re enactors to add to the long list of figures they have scanned and now 3d print. You need to check them out.

Here are some of the first figures off the line. They need a little touch up paint but I am very pleased with them.

Additionally Philip Smith custom created the Rum jugs for me.

I call this Waiting for the morning rum ration.





Carl, the Modelu, is quite the site for for some very nice figures. And you have done a fantastic job painting them as well...

You ALWAYS synchronized your watch with the artillery officer, for obvious reasons!
Cheers,

Yes you don't want a creeping barrage landing on top of you.

Thanks Ted and Rick.


I'm testing out a concept Frank Palmer shared a few pages pack. I still need to acquire and paint 100's of figures. The concept is finding the right period pictures and then fitting some figures in to the scene.

This is a very crude test, the figure needs a lot more work and the picture was printed in low resolution on regular paper and needs to be about 10% larger.



Would there be interest in seeing this type of thing?

That can be very effective if done right, Larry.

Everything is looking fantastic so far !!

Sorry, but I keep forgetting to check in over here, since it's the only thing going on here.

The final patrol moves forward the day before the end of the war, 100 years ago.

Hi Larry. A very moving tribute. As I write this we have just commemorated Remembrance Day in Australia.

" They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."


Regards Rob

I've been out of town and just getting caught up. It's a coincidence, for me, that today is the anniversary of Armistice Day.

Larry, your work shows your attention to historical detail and provides us with a 3D view of the WWI battlefield. [:-thumbu]
