Something Different

Just for interest, I've taken a few shots of a figure I sculpted and cast a while ago, but using one of the same basic dollies that I subsequently used to create the French. The unit is Lord Rawdon's Volunteers of Ireland from the AWI period, again created to fill a gap that isn't serviced by any of the commercial figure ranges that I like.

The photo's will give you some idea of how the french will look, although hopefully slightly better, as this figure is an older sculpt, and I think I've improved since then.

In best Old School style, this figure is gloss varnished, which unfortunately doesn't help with photography, but you get a good idea anyway.

Looks very good in an old-school toy soldierish way (in the best sense)!
Much better than my attempts (but I'm enjoying mine anyway)!

Looks very nice. I'd be interested in seeing what a unit of these looks like en masse.

Very nice looking figure, and I like the gloss varnish look on the figure. It doesn't detract from the photo at all.

Morning John,

Don't be so humble -- This is a lovely figure with very, very convincing proportions. Nice work!

Best Regards,
