The Blues are coming!


One of the first boxes of 1:72 figures I ever bought were Revells Napoleonic British Lifeguard cavalry. Over the years I acquired about 6 boxes of these excellent figures and have great plans for them. The 2 boxes I bought when aged 12 or so, (now some 22 years ago...) were painted like a beginner does: badly. So it is about time these venerable old veterans get the present standard treatment. I decided to do the two Household regiments i.e. the Blues and the Royals, the Royals will have to wait a bit longer still while I finished the Blues first. For these I chose the figures with the sabre at the shoulder and here are the results of this work of love.

More to follow soon!

Cheers Sander,
