Calpe 2007 gossip
Posted by Martin on February 7, 2007
Both Peter F. and I have had a frazzled, illness-impaired start to the New Year but now it looks like Peter has decided what new sculpting he has in mind. So I thought I’d share some gossip straight from the horse’s mouth with you…
Peter has decided to finish the Prussians before continuing with the French. Working on both projects last year did not work for him. That’ll come as a disappointment to some of you but the consolation comes in the form of the plans Peter has for the Prussians. At present he is putting the finishing touches on the cavalry brigade command set and the artillery command set. They’ve taken longer than expected because Peter took the decision to scuplt four “interesting” new horses for them.
After that, the long rumoured resculpting of the dragoons will happen including attendant jaegers. Most excitingly, for me at least, Peter also plans to do a set of figures especially for the Pommeranian National Cavalry because they share the same pattern of shabrque as the dragoons.
At my end, I think we’ve finally resolved the intermittent problems we’ve been having with the Calpe Web site (famous last words) although I’ve had to take the precaution of suspending Web-based sign-up to the mailing list. Peter painted some more units over his Christmas break, so I hope to add some more photos to the catalogue section of the site soon.
