Keeping up with the photos
Posted by Martin on April 14, 2012
One of the most common requests I hear about wargame figure manufacturer websites is for the inclusion of photos of all the figures. Now, when Peter F. and started out on the Calpe Miniatures website, we knew that it would be a huge challenge to go back through the existing Prussian range and produce photos of every figure. Just try counting the sheer range of product codes for the Landwehr alone, and you’ll recognise the magnitude of the backlog. So that particular Herculean task remains an ongoing challenge.
However, when in comes to the newer French and Saxon ranges, we’ve been striving to keep up with things as we go along. And the good news is that today I completed uploading photos of the current 16 packs so far in the French infantry range by adding Packs F6 and F9 plus the bonus of a painted version of Pack F16. The paintwork is all Peter’s own and I’m particularly pleased to see Pack F16 because it gives some good guidance for painting saddle furniture.
That leads me nicely on to the promised painting guide for the French Infantry. Sadly, we still haven’t completed this yet but I’ll be meeting up with Peter F. at Salute next weekend so I’ll be able to give you an update after that. And mentioning Salute give me an excuse to again appeal for anybody who knows of a trader there who’ll be stocking Andrea paints.
