Calpe Web site update imminent
Posted by Martin on May 2, 2007
My in-box tonight contained details of the next couple of Prussian command sets to add the the Calpe Web site along with some photos of Peter F’s own recent painting activity. Here’s a shot of a command set he’s just finished:
Coincidentally, it’s the same one that I’m working on. More to the point, my first reaction was to spot that I’ve made a uniform painting error on the ADC I’m working on at the moment. I’ve painted his collar and cap band red as if he were a staff officer when I should have gone for green. So some remedial work is called for there. Nice tree stump on the base too. I wonder how Peter did that. Knowing him, he probably sculpted it himself.
Still, I’ve got my own ornaments in mind for when I base up my set that should trump the stump.
The listings info to go with the photo also provides some details of other upcoming command figure sets. So I thought I’d whet your appetites now with some details before I actually make the official updates to the Calpe site:
- Corps command staff set (this will be a pack of four figures representing the staff of the Corps commander).
- Corps commanders (named single figures on their horses representing York, Bulow and Kleist)
- Army command set (four figures representing the staff of the army commander).
- Army commanders (two sets of two figures representing Blucher and his ADC and Gnieseneau and his ADC).
You can imagine how these sets will work: you’ll be able to choose a staff sets and then pick an individual character commander to go with it.
