Toy soldiers, wargames and modelling madness.
cool set of figs, got any Foreign Legion Tim?
Listen very carefully, I shall say dis only once - Les marins sont magnifies.Steve.
Beautiful work on "Les matelots"...
Tim,I was tempted to write 'Bonjour matelot' ... so I did!Are you going to acquire a French warship (or two) for them to crew?All the best,Bob
Great figures Tim. That bloke with the shell must be what we used to call "Muscle Bosun"!!! 4.5 shells weigh 65 lbs in the old money and they definitely could not be carried around like that! Cartridge cases, yes but the Captain of the Gun or Loading Bay would kick your butt!!
AlI do have some FL - they are the recent versions of the old Britains Deetail figures. If I remember where they are I'll ask them to pose for a photo.
Stephen ThomasThey are rather nice.
PhilAll Starlux's work - all I've done is base them!
Bob CorderyBonjour - or rather bonsoir - to you too. I was planning simply to make a couple of french flags for my FLW gunboats...
ColSo I should give him at least a +1 in hand to hand combat then?
I have a few similar figures - obvious sailor types - that will become gunners on shore batteries and in the field. This for my Army Men project.
Archduke PiccoloShouldn't that be your Navy Men project?
Well, having got these guys, they have to be employed somewhere. I am enacting that as most of the Kiivar Navy has been lost in the early weeks of the war, naval personnel who had been on shore duty or leave at the time will be employed ashore. I suppose If I could get hold of a couple of Britains 4.7-inch naval guns it would "lend verisimilitude to an otherwise bald and unconvincing narrative..."
Archduke PiccoloYou definitely need a 4.7! I have several and none cost more then £10.
