Yes unfortunately. People want some more color on their figures. The picture of the day is Neckels 30 mm Japanese. The moulds  now belongs to Frank Dittmar.

Bernt it looks like just you and me have figures for the Great war hahaha


Today we have "Captain Billy's Last Match"  this was a set I painted the end of the last century  :o


The east surreys attacked the trenches by dribbling their way to the German lines, Captain Billy Nevill was shot and killed with the 19,000 British who died on the first day of the battle of the Somme.

Big thanks to Bernt and Michel for posting , let's see who else can join in!!




here's todays photo, "Pals"


 
In the first month of the conflict, Major Robert White, suggested that more civilians might enlist if they were assured of serving alongside people they knew. He tested the idea locally in the city of London. In just a few days, thousands of bankers and clerks had joined the so-called ‘Stockbrokers Battalion’. At the same time, the Earl of Derby raised a battalion in Liverpool, again to great success. He coined the term ‘Pals’ and the scheme started to spread.

Thank you Brian for your time dedicated to WWI, remembering us appropriately this overwhelming period for ourascendants (my grand father was prisoner for a while, in additions to his wounds on the Eastern battlefields of France).

I hope this 100th anniversary shall be a new commitment from all our European nations to a "Never again" for our children.  The sacrifice of our parents gave us the privilege of not having a war on our grounds during or own life, unique in the History since 2300 years, I believe ....


However as far as painting, my interest in the History extends from 3000 C to 1750 AD, and I will express it for BFFS differently.
