    Hello Folks,
    As i try to finish my many projects and decided to get these little fellas from Doug Carrocio at Tridrnt designs ( The miniature Service center) , something i want it to ge tfor a while and while i am working my diorama in 28mm perhaps i will make these chaps at the battle of Fontenoy, for now i just testing the waters with these 40's and as always i really like them
    I have replace some of the heads for the officers, i will paint one in the Gardes Suisses and one in gardes Françaises , another officer of the French and one swiss and one french trooper.
    I have clipped the heads of the officers since i was not really happy with the looks on its face, i cutted the head portion and adapted the hat to a spare head of front rank figurines, that gives me the option of different faces, unlike those officers, the troopers comes up with plug in heads and they are perfect.
    Primed with self etching primer, layed the reds and blues for now. gardessuisses.jpg GardesFrancaises1757MS-06-530788b.jpg 20181008_204327.jpg 20181008_231711.jpg 20181008_234208.jpg

    Daniel, you put me to shame with your output. These are superbly painted tiny figures. I will have a go at this scale but not up to your standard. Thank you for sharing.
