Painted Voltaire

Here we have Voltaire and his man servant 'Wee Jocky' (late of the Royal Ecossais)

No many colour illustrations of Voltaire I'm afraid, so had to make a guess at colour scheme .

Voltaire and Wee Jocky watch the Chasseurs De Sombreuil go through their manoeuvres . Voltaire's thoughts on light infantry tactics were not well received in French military circles and copies of his pamphlet ' Mes reflexions sur L'utilisation De L'infanterie Legere' are very hard to come by !.


  1. tres elegant ! - nice work; like the sentiments expressed by the servant

  2. Lovely models, full of character.
