    Another little project underway and in varying degrees of progress. These were engraved by Johannes Frauendorf.

    Thanks Rich. The plan is to do a small display of different French units from 1870-71. I have just pulled the place apart looking for a suitable base I thought I had but it appears to have been beamed up by aliens. :confused:

    I really like drumming figures. this one is no exception.
    I do not know too much about French drums but I notice that the drum head tension slides on this fellow pull upward. I cannot recall seeing this before.
    You learn something every day.
    Cheers,

    Nice work Roger - the engraving detail on these looks less defined which must make them harder to paint.
    Cheers

    Thanks Mat.
    They aren't too bad, I've seen a lot worse. With 30mm's sometimes it's best to just give an impression of detail with light and shade rather than try and paint all the detail..... that's my excuse. :D

    He's not lost his sea legs yet, he needs a few more stiff drinks to get him back into the painting fury...

    Had a bit of a drama today with the first layer of blue and the primer lifting off small areas of the drummer. I've been doing my art restorer impression and trying to patch it. :mad: It's drying at the moment, hopefully in the morning work will continue.
    I might have some "in progress" shots of some of the others shortly. :)
