Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hello all,

    I'm urgently looking for someone who can model for me this week for a painting project titled 'Body Armour'.

    My name is Katie Tunn and I'm a young artist who specialises in military and polo paintings.
    The project itself will be a series of diptychs (two paintings as one piece), each featuring the same person in the same pose but in two different states of dress. The model I'm looking for will be posing for the first of these works which will be entered into the Armed Forces Art Society annual exhibition next month. It is also likely to be featured in reviews in the national press and Soldier magazine. The project will be expanded later in the year with more models to an exhibition-size project to be exhibited at various London galleries.

    I'm looking for a VOLUNTARY model, so you wont be paid unless I sell a painting that features you. In which case you will be paid £100 cash. You also get to be immortalised in paint and receive any postcards or prints of the finished work.

    I can come to where you are. I'm based in Windsor so ideally I'm looking for someone within 2 hours of here/London (if you're based at Combermere or Victoria barracks you're only 5 mins away).

    I will be taking photographs and using them to paint from due to time constraints. This means I will only need you for a maximum of 2 hours.


    -Someone of any rank, under the age of 35, any size, GSOH (no, I'm shitting wih you on that one). I'm looking for male models now but will need women in the future (so ladies, let me know too)

    -You need to be okay posing in uniform (whatever you have) and also shirtless from the waist up. This will be done in a NON sexual or gratuitous way. The pictures will be head, shoulders and torso in strong light.

    -The project is about human vulnerability underneath the recognisable clothing, how we hold ourselves differently when we put on a uniform and the strength it gives. SO, you need to be okay with being painted as a macho man AND someone with vulnerability.

    If you fit the bill and you think you can do it, give me a call/text on 07903301103 or email me at You can also find me on facebook 'Katie Tunn'. My website Katie Tunn Fine Art: Welcome is currently down for maintenance.

    Having just checked you out on Facebook I will be opting out of the sordid replies since you are A: quite hot and B: share 4 mutual friends with me.

    I am however up for a laugh and might possibly let you take a photo of me in a compromising position.
  4. I love the effortless way 2polo" is mentioned in the same phrase as VB and Combermere! Katie, you are painting a picture indeed!
  5. I challenge anyone to write out those specs without sounding like a dodgy perv! I may be giving you innuendo on a silver platter but I assure you my intentions are honourable (if you volunteer and expect otherwise I'm afraid you'll get nowt but bitter disappointment)

    Raver, if you could volunteer that would be ace. I just need to know sooner rather than later :)

    Cuddles, I'm not quite sure what you're getting at there...
  6. I've got both the Polo Gear and the Army Gear. Unfortunately mere art cannot capture my beauty. Still good luck, had a look and like your stuff.
  7. Will it do if I "look" under 35? :)
  8. sounds like you wanna skinny bloke who looks hard as nails in kit!! i just look skinny as fook no matter how much kit i have hanging off me lol
  9. EX_STAB, over 35's who have been on the Oil of Ulay are most welcome. As are skinny fooks such as yourself, randomgary.
  10. lol im in for surgery next thrs and im totally booked up this weekend
  11. Ah, missed the key words "this week" so can't be of assistance. Hope it goes well.
  12. Like **** have you've got 4 mutual 'friends', that's a different kind of 'art' you're thinking of.
  13. It would take 10 hours to paint you.
