Great post Rodger, very nice historical background and beautiful vignette...
Nice painting mate
Nice work - really enjoy these vignettes you put together... I'm inspired to do some ACW stuff in the future :)
Very nice painting. Lovely pictures!
Nice work Rodger! Great brushwork and a cool write up too, very nice.
Now that is a really nice command base.
Nice command base!
Great looking command base Rodger! And a nice little history snippet as well!
Lovely looking work Rodger!
Great modeling, Rodger. BTW: all commanding officers wearing their rank should hide behind trees, IMHO. (:0|)
That's a rather splendid stand Rodger, bravo Sir.
A great command figure Rodger, an interesting summary of his career!
excellent work Rodger.
Another great command stand, Rodger. Just as good as your Old Pete stand.Poor JB Hood, I always feel that had the war gone on another year longer, he would have ended up as a torso strapped on a horse.
"So now I'm marching southward,My heart id full of woe.I'm going back to GeorgiaTo see my Uncle Joe.You may talk about your Beauregard,And sing of General Lee -But the gallant Hood of TexasPlayed Hell in Tennessee!"(sung by soldiers of the Army of Tennessee after Nashville, 1864, to the tune of 'Yellow Rose of Texas")
Cheers Ion. I was thinking of adding this myself.Very glad you have added it as a comment!
That is lovely work Rodger!
Impressive photos of your brush work here Rodger! marvelous display of painted miniatures and terrain to boot too!cheers,
Very nice and interesting bio history. cheers
Stunning work as usual Rodger. 10 orphans...Phew!
No one could doubt the man's courage but his performance towards the end of the war was less than Davis hoped for. Probably a result of losing so many parts of his anatomy. Awesome modelling as usual Rodger.
Very well done! I'm sure this valiant fellow will help to ensure victory for the cause.
