I have now finished the remaining figures for the 9th Prussian RIR (21st Regt in 1815).  I hoped to finish these by the end of March but they are a few days late. So far this year I have now finished 38 foot and 12 cavalry figures - so 62 points.




The infantry are Les Higgins British rifleman. The standard bearer is a LH officer who has had his arm adjusted and a pin added for the flag pole. The flag is made from a fizzy pop can, a la Wellington Man. The Officer and Drummer are old Hinton Hunt figures. They probably should have black facings but I have done them in red to match the flag and add a bit of colour

I lived in Ham and used to cycle over to BMW Models  a round trip of nearly 16 miles.  I also bought other bits and pieces from Teddington Model Supplies.

Beautiful figures, there is a particular charm to the classic look, brings back fond memories of my childhood.

Just in time for 'proper' Foot Guards to blast 'em into history's dustbin!

I finished my Grumblers - they were planned to be finished on the 18th June but I missed the deadline.
