    Hello folks,
    Here is another figure i had completed about 8 years ago for a project never saw the light.
    I have started at just doing some cleaning and little you know, end up replacing the plume for a more realistic one, touched up the face, narrowed the collar, it was way to wide for the neck, lowered the height of the collar, re-painted and repainted the Crimson lapels.
    This regiment fought in the American war of independence and one of the regiments who kept their grenadiers bearfur hats.
    The regiment uniform was whote with the beautiful crimson facing color at the cuffs and lapels.
    I forgot to mention i added a gorget made out of brownstuff and Royal cypher with greenstuff.
    Cheers 38bc93c2b5a0e204f10f386a058756ad--independence-war-american-independence.jpg 20190419_163739.jpg 20190419_163750.jpg 20190419_164853.jpg 20190419_165721.jpg

    I loved them, my only issue with them is the faces, too toyish, but if you replace the head it makes for an amazing figure, i have used the JMD heads , which are 65mm and slightly larger than it should, but with today's many options you can have a grest conversion on them.
    This grenadier's head is from JMD, the besrfur hat is from modeles et Allures, i just completely cut the head from the hat, drilled the center and place it on the new head.
