    I clippe the head off from one of the figures, i am really not happy with them, somehow the are full of character but cartoonish.
    So i did some surgery and replaced it for one from Front rank, the Foundry figures look like they don't have necks, which i added a little , covered by neck stock.
    I have finished the red on the coats, now i am working on the broad silver lace that these Swiss and French guard's officers had. 20170312_163034.jpg 20170312_163041.jpg
