Early German - OG, Forged in Battle, Essex

Post by jdesmond » Sat Jul 15, 2017 6:21 pm

Salutations, gentlefolk !

Unfortunately ain't able to get to Historicon this year, so sending some pictures of Early Germans, cast by Old Glory, Forged in Battle, and Essex, painted by yours truly, for your edification. In nearly all cases, haven't mixed manufacturers on a stand (can you find the exception?)

Took pics with new smartfonecamera and tripod, still need to figure out lighting, advice welcome.

Yours, John
