Hi guy's

Off into the jungle I have ten elephants at present with another 6 being done for the Punic wars.
Final shot but will he bag it.
I remember seeing an interview with Spike Mulligan years ago when he was recounting his time in India as a boy he grow up there ,he recalled his father waking him up during the night and exclaiming that he had never bagged a tiger.strange story but really funny.

  1. Very nicely done, Willie: great figure paint job, landscape (bushes and trees look great), buildings are well painted, and the scenes are nicely choreographed and photographed. Plus, the rope climber is a great "touch". Thoroughly enjoyed your hard work.


  2. Willie, I'm jealous! Most of all, I am jealous of the fact you have Flag Dude standards for all your native troops! That's something I need to do. The challenge is to remove and replace my old homemade paper flags without causing too much damage to hands and paint-jobs. It can be done of course but it requires time and attention that I prefer to focus on new terrain. Still, Rick O'Brien's work is so consistently excellent, I really need to carve out the time and get it done -- otherwise my native troops will remain out-shined and over-shadowed by yours!

    BTW, beautiful job as usual with your Tiger Hunt layout!

  3. Thanks for the comment's Jay!

    MG your natives are no way out-shined nor over-shadowed you collection looks like areal labour of love.

    Best wishes
