Some French French and others.
Hello, it's me again. Just a few progress pictures this time. First up are two photo's of some figures I picked up at the Plastic Warrior Show a couple of years back, and have just got round to finishing them. They are Marins of the Garde. They are, I think quite attractive models and I was only able to get theses four marins, although I also obtained various others from the same manufacturer; mostly staff officer types and some dismounted Chasseurs a Cheval of the Garde. There were some really nice eagle bearers but I missed out on those - he who hesitates misses out (on those.) The bases are marked "BEVERLY" and I wonder if they are some sort of product related give-away? Whatever, they are a real bonus in depicting this unit in plastic for the first time?
Next the first part of a squadron of Carabiniers. I really like this striking uniform and the pouch belts are great fun to paint...........
Finally some British Hussars comprising an officer and trooper - work in progress - and a completed trooper, another painting challenge for my poor old eyes.
Once again, if you are out there reading this stuff please feel free to say hello - or something.
More soon, thanks and stay safe.
