Forbodian Brigade Staff

These chaps represent the staff of the Forbodian Infantry Brigade and are HAT ACW Zouaves with head transplants. 
That's not as clever as it sounds, as HAT thoughtfully supply a few spare heads with wide-brimmed hats.  So a bit of slicing, trimming, drilling and glueing was all that was required.  
The two coats of varnish have worked well, as I've already dropped two of these chaps onto a wooden floor while placing them on a 4 foot high shelf - with no ill effects.

King Boris thanks you for your continued interest.

Tom,

They look very nice indeed, and I am looking forward to facing them across the lawn/floor in early July.

All the best,

Bob

If I can stop them leaping off their shelf I'm sure they'll be there.

Eager to get at the foe! Always a good sign. (...Unless they were actually trying to run away....No, perish the thought! )

I initially mis-read your comment as "eager to get at the food." Which is probably closer to the truth!
