From Aled: The Curtgeld (25 points)

Here is my model for the Curtgeld, to be combined with the others from our group. Basing not done as Alan has offered to do that so that they all are consistent.

He seems to have taken his jacket off, so not as colourful as the average Landsneckt.
I really liked painting this model, so much going on. At some point whilst painting him I got it in my head that he might be somebody's dogsbody or offside man because he doesn't have any picture, or chest of gold, or woman for himself. Instead, he is stuck carrying the stolen food, important to do but without many thanks. It doesn't help he seems a bit sad.

"Gee Billy, why does your mum let you have a Roast Chook AND and Barrel of beer?"
But because of this, I kept imagining him saying silly things in the manner of Baldrick from the Blackadder series, following the others in the looting party on the inevitable "cunning plans".

A nice chunk of meat on this side.
I am quite pleased with the way he came out and I hope you like him, Curt.

Attempted Peacock Feathers, he has to have looted something of value.

From Paul: An excellent addition to our growing party of looters Aled!  He does indeed look a little like King Arthur's batman Patsy, just not banging two halves of a coconut together...

25 points for you Sir!


  1. Nice work Aled! I'm looking forward to seeing the whole group together :)

  2. Ah, this is just superb, Aled. He looks like he takes his looting very seriously. The trousers are a riot of colour. Thanks very much!

  3. Excellent, hopefully Curt will take a few pics of these when he gates them all.
