    Rameses II

    Post  smallia on Sat Jan 19, 2013 6:18 pm

    Guys this is my latest painting effort. It's in 54mm and a joy to paint. I think you will also notice a marked improvemet in the quality of the pics. For this reason I included a couple of th crimean bugler. There's a diffrence in one particular detail from the first to this one. Let's see how sharp you are. Who can guess the difference

    Ray,I know you're sharp. But not as sharp !!. No prize at all. It's easy actually if you look closely.
    Any thoughts about Mr. Pharoah himsel?

    OK I WIN......IT IS THE RED PATTERN ON THE PIPING cheers

    But its not because of the REALLY BAD & not so BAD PICS lol!

    Its because you CORRECTED the RED PATTERN so much so that you accidentally touched the left edge of the roll backs while CORRECTING you moron Twisted Evil and that's why I thought that that was the DIFFERENCE lol!

    YOU CHEATED US Suspect

    MarKo go & do some modelling instead of trying to catch up with me with your two different sticks Sad as YOU MISSED the question TWICE Evil or Very Mad

    Mark, what the hell does Rameses's sticks have to do with the bugler? You got it all wrong from the start.
    Ray, you win. Firstly, it's not piping but lacing SmileSmileSmile. I had to repaint it all over again. And that little red smudge on the turnbacks(and not turnovers !!!)is not actually visible on the real thing SmileSmile

    Great job on both of the figures, but I really like the Pharaoh, something different and something you don't see very often. The colors look really neat and did you hand paint the print on the cape? Fantastic detail.
