I thought you might lke to see this little figure. It's from Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures, Loveland Ohio and is based on the caricatures of Rowlandson and other artists of the 19th C.

Roger, You are a wonderfully talented man.

And, it would appear, an artist with great patience and dedication, to produce such a singular and humorous figure.

To see such whimsy done so wonderfully is a great pleasure.

I think that Louis Carrol (sp) would be quite proud.

This figure does bear an unfortunate resemblence to Joe Nemechek ("Front-Row Joe", in NASCAR speak). Just a tip - You do not want Joe to be your driver.

Roger, thanks for putting a mini up that made me laugh. I've known several re-enactors who could give this guy a run for his money! Reminds meof many an armchair quarterback/general: 'If I'd been there we would have won!'  Good lord but I laughed, thank you much I needed it.

 

btw: w/ the yellow pipping what Regt?

Well Roger, if you ever make it over here I owe you a black and tan... only good use I can think of for guiness :) I like to drink my beer not chew it but I think I'll buy you some good Bass or such and have my Cognac. Besides as a sailor you'd likely drink me under the table.

I did my college thesis on the Mongol Conquests and have been fascinated w/ 19th Century military warfare since I read the Sharpe's War series as a child. The Romans, Mongols, Wellington's "Cutthroats and guttersnipes" onto the US 15th Corps and the "Black Bastards" of WW1 fame that the French appreciated so much. I blame Louis LaMour and a College Professor, Mr Lybarger, for a passion for history and the fighting men who made civilization possible.

I enjoy a beer and a good chat, more talking than beer actually. I go for quality not quantity these days
I have an interest in the Napoleonic Wars also sparked by those Sharpe books and from it The War of 1812.
I've also done quite a bit of research into the soldiers commemorated on the war memorials in this area frm WWI
