A Flash(man)ing Blade.


Flashman has been one of my literary hero's since I first read about his adventures as a teenager . When Wargames Illustrated made a figure in 28mm of the great man himself I had to get one ! and there he sat on my painting tray for several months - till today when I found myself without anything prepared for painting - so I decided to paint him up . I  painted him in the uniform of the 17th Lancers , who he served with . He could be appearing in some of my Colonial games in the near future.

  2. Hmm, could be hard to apply the Flasman grip with a saber in one hand. None the less he has the look of a dashing hero (must have just licked up the honey).

  3. A delightful figure. I've always had a hankering for a set of Flashman's, based on the cover drawings of the books. Of course, there'd need to be the ladies as well!

    1. Think somebody did some of them - but in an odd scale and I can't remember who it was, Tony

    2. It was Chiltern Miniatures, but in a VERY large 28mm, not sure if they still do them, Tony
