Lanarkshire Rifle Volunteers .


I've got the three extra 54mm figures I cast up painted and varnished and was going to do a photo shoot outside (the natural environment of 54mm figures) but the weather has been wet yet again so had to resort to my usual set up in the bathroom ( experience has shown it has the best lighting for photographing toy soldiers).


Here we see them with the rest of the finished unit , next year I plan to cast up some more 'Germanic' figures for there opponents 'Army Black' .


It was only when I came to put this photo on 'blogger' that I noticed - a) the dust on the bases of the older figures and b) the new figures are a slightly darker shade of grey - damn ! as it's nearly three years since I painted the original figures I've obviously forgotten which paint I used , perhaps it's not too noticeable .

  1. The beauty of yacht varnish is the dust will easily wipe off...looking forward to seeing some Teutons.

  3. I think the old 'Volunteer' units are sadly neglected. Perhaps the older chaps uniforms have faded a bit in the sun? That's why they are lighter than the new issue.
