Gewalthaufen Blog Updated: Jean Poton de Xaintrailles!

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

Gewalthaufen Blog Updated: Jean Poton de Xaintrailles!

Post by Atheling » Thu Sep 27, 2012 8:16 am

Hi,

This version of Jean Poton de Xaintrailles was painted a good while ago for a client and was a a pleasure to paint- I'm much more used to painting stuff on the scale of Perry Miniatures these days, but more about that on the blog. Jean Poton de Xaintrailles was a bit of a giant of the Hundred Year War although you may not have heard much about him from an English perspective!

You can read all about him and how it was to paint the character here:

And here's a pic to hopefully whet your appetite:

Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Cheers,
Darrell.

Darrell,

Great Stuff!
Beautiful painting job.

Besides, there seems to be a small error on your blog as there are white bars in the sentence:
...as Jargeau, Meung-sur-Loire, Beaugency and and more famously at Patay. He was in command at the Siege of Compiegne.

Best Wishes,
Günter

Darrell,
It is possible that it is my Web Browser but when I copy and paste the words to a word doc the parts invisible or hidden by a white bar show up in a different type of fonts. In my case Arial (red)

...as Jargeau, Meung-sur-Loire, Beaugency and and more famously at Patay. He was in command at the Siege of Compiegne.

Sorry if I give you any trouble.

I wouldn't fret about it too much Darrell - it is still there, although much less so. Looks to me like you've got some errant coding producing a white text highlight block over white text. If I run my cursor over the text and highlight everything myself (in blue) I can see what's 'underneath'. Text below with spaces and characters I can see as white blocks indicated between the red square brackets. (I'm using Chrome)

"He also fought at some of the lesser know battles such as Jargeau[, ]Meung-sur-Loire[, ]Beaugency and more famously[ at ]Patay He was also in command at the [S]iege of Compiegne[.]

None of which detracts from your excellent painting! :D

Thanks. I've tried to remedy it again. Hopefully it is now sorted out.

If not I think I'll just leave it :D .

Thanks for letting me know.
