Finished painting the old hollow cast Britains (?) Life Guards I tidied up last weekend.
Thought I would photo them outdoors seeing the weather is permitting this afternoon and I do think 54mm figures look better 'al fresco' .
Must admit I'm rather pleased how they have turned out as they did not look to promising to start with but a coat of high gloss varnish helps brighten them up .
The painting has highlighted the difference in the figure variants , but I think this adds to their appeal . These type of figure seems to appear on EBay regularly and relatively cheaply too, its a pity 'Black' army (German) figures don't, so I will have to cast up my own using the Prince August Lancer mold .
