Ok... I didn't know about 'Geladen' in the 18th/19th Cs, but I had a feeling there would be some idiomatic changes in the language from one century to another. So... it is 1944. A German gun crew and a 105mm howitzer have a fire mission. What does the gun captain shout to have the loader shove a round into the breech?


The funny thing is, I was at an artillery training demo (Grafenwohr, I think) back in the early 90s and I heard all of the commands from US and German towed and self-propelled artillery. Don't remember a thing...  :(


One little project; so much research...

Hi Glen,
in terms of command for 18th or 19th century
the better word is

Geladen !

It has this imperative meaning.

Laden has more the descriptive sense of "to load"

Thanks Michel. I do like the new image. It's far brighter and more saturated than my original (which is actually closer to the actual painting).


Can I send you a larger and higher res pic here or via the message system? I thought there were limitations...



I'll be starting another one in September. Not sure what direction to go.


Cheers,


Glen

Thanks Ralf! I wasn't sure. I didn't want to use the term in case it meant to put furniture on a moving van. That would have looked silly if they were all standing behind an artillery piece...


Cheers,


Glen


(And greetings from Texas.)

Hi Glen,

"Laden" means get munition in a canon or rifle too!

I find the painting very successful, in lights and shadows, and with the colours adapted to the suject!
Painting gives an excellent three dimensional effect to the flat.
I've darkenen the tones and background with a bit more contrast to emphasize the colours.


Can you send the pic with larger size/resolution? (formy collection)

but this is your fourth interpretation, shown in June.

This is Reaper's Elf Ranger Flat converted to a Dark Elf. Apparently they live underground in the dark and have an unpleasant disposition. Reapercon is coming up early this year, so I had to have something new for my flat painting classes. Reaper acrylics over my last bottle of Floquil Railroad Gray Primer.


Qs and Cs welcomed.


Cheers,


Glen

Load! ...as in the command to load a round into an artillery piece. I've found 'Laden', but that seems to be more related putting items in trucks or carts.


I've found Feur auf mein Kommando! for 'Fire on my command'; Feuer! for 'Fire!'; and Feuer Frei! for 'Fire at will'.


I'm working on a small project...


Thanks,


Glen
