"Soldiers of my Old Guard!" (AB Figures 15mm)
« on: June 06, 2019, 10:42:06 AM »

I thought the same from the first glance. Gorgeous!

I had to double-check that these were indeed 15mm! Magnificent painting on great models.

Well, yes... Reenactors nowadays tend to be fat  lol
But you chose the leanest for your job  ;)
They look so alive! Many congrats!
