Almannia Infantry on parade.


I've finally got the first unit of infantry done for the Almannia Expeditionary Force (AEF) here seen being inspected by their Commander Karl von Bismark.

The figures painted up better than I thought and have a lot of character .

  1. The Infantry painted up very nicely - looks splendid Tony- you must be very pleased with the results. Best Wishes. KEV.

  2. They look 'just right' to me. Well done!

  3. Excellent job of painting Tony! I especially like your contemporary photo, so very atmospheric!

  4. Gorgeous, they look soooo smart in those white trousers, but please, no going prone or kneeling behind cover - grass stains will be a b*gger to get out!
