This Tribute is for my good friend Peter, our very entertaining and hard working Monday Minion.
This is a 28mm model from Wargames Foundry's venerable Renaissance Swiss range. The model was originally armed with a partizan, but I extended the staff, and added a Uribanner and a fancy finial to top it off.
Much of the literature of the Uri Swiss have their ensigns wearing these whacky yellow-and-black bull getups. The uniform makes me laugh as it reminds me of the pajamas 'Max' wears in Maurice Sendak's 'Where the Wild Things Are'. :)
'Let the Wild Rumpus Begin!!'
Whoops! ...and here's Max with the iconic Swiss white cross on his chest (I noticed its absence after the first batch of photos, so I'm glad I caught it.)
Thank you very much for all your help during the Challenge Peter. I think I can speak for all of us in saying that you and your Monday mob always started of our work-weeks with a smile. I hope this chap finds a good home amongst the ranks of your troops.
Administrative Note: I'll be posting up my final tribute figures today (this one for Peter and Dave's) and then I'll move onto announcing the Challenge awards/prizes later this evening. Thanks!
