Me and My Kepi

A couple of posts ago, I mentioned how the little drawing of my head in Wargames: Soldiers & Strategy made me look like I was wearing a kepi. Well, a friend just reminded me that I have actually be portrayed wearing a kepi once before...

A few years ago, when I was organizing Osprey Publishing's attendance at Salute, I arranged for popular artist, Peter Dennis, to come to the show and do some painting on the stand. Peter is well aware of my affinity for, and ancestral connection to, the American Civil War, so while on the stand at Salute, he asked me to pose as though I were leading a Confederate charge. I didn't know what it was for, but I was happy to oblige.

A few months later, Perry Miniatures released their new box of plastic Advancing Confederate Infantry, and there I am, pistol at the ready, urging my troops onward!

I don't know, I think I look pretty good in a kepi.


  1. I think you appear in another piece of artwork somewhere, Joe...

  2. Do you really want me to post that pic? Really? Because I will...

    1. ...cropped to protect the innocent, of course.

  3. Not `artistic' pictures I hope... this is a family friendly site !!!

  4. Now that is fame in my opinion...😀
