From KaweWZ: 28mm Napoleonic Vignettes (75 points)


From Kawe:
I finished 2 more vignettes for our booth at the Tactica tomorrow that I wanted to enter in the competition.
One shows Westfalias Prussian Ambulance and an ad Hoc Operation table. It's basically our 2 Prussian medical sets with Perry Horses and Aufsitzer which Niels buys from them.
The next piece is a hell of a rushed Ammo-caisson. Half painted and burried under a lot of snow BUT... I've strangely fallen for it, and I might do another one like that soon.

Sadly, I doubt that I really meet the points target, but I really had to finish these vignettes first.  I could plough on and just sinish a few ranker quick and dirty, but that's not the spirit of a sportsman. :)
Awesome work Kawe! They're both brilliant, but I agree with you in that the snow covered caisson seems particularly evocative of the 1812 Retreat. Beautiful.

These two vignettes will give Kawe a base of 65 points but I'm adding a few extra for their excellent overall composition. This places you well within striking distance of your Points Goal, Kawe...

  6. Both look exceptional but the snow covered one just brings the feeling of dread. So well done and the lack of figures on this one adds a lot to it, can't see how it could be improved

  13. Thank you Gents,

    The Snow has a base of white wood-glue with lots of 'Kaisernatron' applied to it. If baking soda makes the dough rise, then this is what I am talking about. :--)
