    There's some beauties there Ron, the French hussar is looking particularly nice.

    The hussar has been sitting unfinished for well over a year, thought I would let the oils dry a bit before showing :rolleyes:
    Need just a little tweaking here and there.
    The Roman has a little difficult part to fit IE the cheek guards which have next to no locating pins .

    Some gems there. Always great to see the Metal Modeles 90mm- it is an absolute classic.

    I greatly admire those that can work on several projects at once, I find the figure I'm working on ends up in the "spares box" if something else takes my fancy!
    How do you keep your bench so clear with so many figures on the go, mine always looks like a disaster area...

    Often thought of buying That MM again and doing in another regiment ,or just polishing it and antiquing it
    up .
    I really think you should always purchase two of the same MM one painted and the other kept bare metal as they look great that way also . Costly though :rolleyes:

    That's a nice collection. Some awesome wood overthere.
    Finish them, they are worth it.

    Cheers Bob
    Its one helluva casting and would easily stand alone just polished , would love to see Bruno do another 90mm Nap figure.
    I picked this one up at the Herzog von Bayern show (Ingolstadt) at a knockdown price.
