    First let me apologise to forum members who visit my previous post’s to find a cute picture of a kitten, that is due to Photobucket not allowing third party posting?  I won’t be going through my older post’s and reloading the photo’s from another source, plus side is I can post old photo’s and call them new.

    Here are some photo’s of items I have been working on over the last few weeks.

    French infantry officer, Hinchcliffe Austrian converted and RSM drummer.

     

    Elite officer on Hinchcliffe horse and Willie figure drummer.

    Erbprinz musketeers, Tradition figures.

    Lovely stuff. Those Spencer figures are cool.  I could never paint them.  But they are very cool.

    There’s something special about how you do your figures.  I’m not really sure how to describe it, but they make me feel like they belong on a bespoke wargames table  in a dedicated wargames room lined with bookcases with the players drinking brandy and smoking cigars.

    Somewhere where it’s always the 1970s, in a good way. 🙂

    Cheers for your kind comments and words Trulsenbakkenfjell, Victoria,

    “Somewhere where it’s always the 1970s, in a good way” ah the 1970’s for me involved a lot of time at sea underwater inter-spaced with bouts of alcohol consumption in foreign ports and incredibly poor disco dancing  ah wonderful days.

    I loved the 70s, but I was young enough to find power cuts exciting, sitting in front of a coal fire reading by candle light.

    Oh, the word I was looking for regarding your figures.  Evocative. 🙂

    Thanks so much for sharing them. 🙂

    Coming up trumps as always.
