    Hi to one and all

    To give me a break from WW1 kharki I have been working on these 1/15th scale busts from Nemrod ( available via Historex )

    These are not bad sculpts work needed to just tidy things up slightly ( some have the belts missing from the rear but easy to add on , the eyes are sometimes a little awkward to get at !!

    The aim is to paint and display all together on one base

    They also do Napoleonic which I have some of these as you can see !!!...diversity and fun are the keywords ....

    Pics not the best but you get the idea

    WIP 006.jpg Left to Right: Annamite ( Chinese ) Tirailleur, Dragoon , Senegalese Tirailleur

    Note Dragoon is WIP , will be a trumpeter with red helmet "tail" others are finished !!!

    These are just base coated

    WIP 005.jpg

    Left to Right: Tunisian Spahi, Almoner (Priest) , Alpine Chasseur

    Note: The priest originally had a Adrian helmet on

    My references are Officers and Soldiers of French Army 1914 and 1918 ( 2 volumes # 11 and 12 ) from Histoire & Collections both by Andre Jouineau

    They also as said have Napoleonic

    here are 3 one base coated , the others primed

    WIP 007.jpg
    Left to Right: Page to the Emperor , Ordnance Officer , Surgeon

    Again using H & C books as references

    Thanks for looking in

    Saw these in the flesh (well resin) at the Salisbury show recently and they must be the best value busts around - great for 'having a go' at something different (I was going to say dipping your toe in the water, but didn't seem appropriate what with the lack of legs and all!)
    Anyway got to be worth picking up even if you are only vaguely interested in . . . .

    Paintings are coming along nicely too Kev - going to look impressive all based up as a group (y)

    These are looking very nice Kevin.
    I saw some of them at Salisbury and, if memory serves me correctly, you were painting the hat of the Annamite (Chinese) Tirailleur.

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    Yes of course - My bad (as the youth roundabouts are wont to say when they've made a faux pa):p
