Airfix Collectors Kit Coldstream Guard. Rival to Historex.
A very block style of painting.
It looks like I did a better job of this laddie, having discovered shading.
Minot - I think painted as 33rd Foot.
Another Minot, this with a worry...
The paint is flaking off the bearskin.
This one is a Lasset, LNF3, but with a Historex flag. No idea why I changed it.
It is one of my favourites.
I'm thinking Lasset, LNF5
Has a wicked bayonet.
Minot and I did a dreadful job on him.
Lasset, LNF4. White uniforms are a challenge.
I think I also converted this figure from French Grenadier to Dutch.
I'm guessing Lasset.
Also a fave - started experimenting with basing.
This was one of the last figures I did before a long break...
Another one I like too.
I used Funcken as the main (and possibly only) source.
This was a present and I don't think is really meant to be painted.
So it's not.
Now we get interesting.
My mum, who loved to paint - mainly copying old masters, tried her hand with this Lasset figure.
It turned out okay.
However her attempt on this poor chap must have got her on a bad day.
A few of the figures I painted have dates on the base that indicate 1975 was my year for 54mm figures. Having been rescued from under lead mountain they will go into my display cabinet.
