Germans heading towards Mons

...Imperial German troops on their way to walk over General French's "contemptible little army".

Very nice. Both the paintwork and the picture. Are they GW Miniatures? I am waiting on an order from Northstar to start an early war collection myself.

Just a minor point. The original German translates as 'Contemptibly little army' where the 'contemptible' refers to its size rather than the 'army' per se. It didn't matter as far as the reaction to the quote was concerned ;-)

Very nice unit. I see you've opted for a different field grey.
The photo looks like a propaganda postcard from the good old days.  ;)

Thank You. Yes, I finally settled on a more plan grey instead of the greenish toned variant. Using the Vallejo slate grey triad.
Indeed, they have been somewhat of an inspiration :) Colors flying, bugler sounding the advance towards glory.
