1897 The Infantry.


Been rattling through the infantry units, got two of the German units done and the General figure varnished .


The German infantry are from their Franco-Prussian War range , simple but nice figures .


The first unit of British infantry , the British Line Infantry Regts. had generic white facings at this time . 


Think they have come out quite well and they are my favourite figures so far . Got some British Guard and artillery to do next.

    1. Yes I must admit I'm concentrating on these figures rather than the other half dozen projects I have on the go .

  6. Nicely done! ( but surely you meant the "English" Line Regiments had white facings)

    1. Yes that's right - think Royal Regts had blue , Irish green (?) and Scottish yellow (?)

  7. Well done there Tony. The IRREGULAR figures turning out rather splendidly- certainly looking forward to your future additions of the British Guards to the Collection.
