Last night, having completed the evenings decorating duties (we are giving the oldest lad his own room, and I'm mournfully re-painting it) I cracked open my new tin of yacht varnish and glossed up these fellows for the Funny Little Wigs project...possibly Lumley's horse
Very nice Del Prado figures, picked up here and there. The most expensive was £3.80. Some of the paintwork was badly chipped, but this didn't matter as I was re-painting.
If I was playing real Little Wars, and firing missiles at them (which I might do with Playmobil cannons) these chaps would be invincible. They are really heavy and must contain a fair amount of lead.
I need to get on with some Bavarians and/or French soon.
