First up are a couple of goodies from my collection, namely 1st Westphalian Cuirassiers and a new General de Brigade vignette.
General de Brigade
|Perry Miniatures General and ADC. |
Unusually these are painted by me, mostly!
|The general was originally painted by Barry Hill. I forgot I had him until he surfaced from draw/bits box. I then tidied him up, then tarted him up a bit more.|
|The ADC was painted one evening by me. He seemed the ideal chum for the other fellow.|
| The ADC has a wonderful sense of action in the sculpt - he really looks like he's mounting up. |
I love the red reigns and sword grip, it maybe artistic licence but hey - it's my model!
Based by me.
Special thanks to John Tyson of the General de Brigade forum for the info on the flags - I duly downloaded them from www.warflag.com and hey presto! These snaps were taken before I put a leaf shaped finial on the top of the banner shaft. Thanks again John - God bless you.
|These are Perry plastics with plumes stuck on from the Perry plastic hussar set.|
|Various people worked on these. Perry Pender did the basis for the riders - then I tarted them up.|
|Tony Laughton did the saddle cloth and roll-ups.|
|I did the horses and bridles.|
|Basing by me to match my collection.|
On the gaming front we have played more games in our Fords of Missen campaign which will follow here soon. Best wishes,
