A Bit Of Colour

Lots of khaki and grey recently so I thought a touch of colour would not go amiss, first off a Dutch general for the War Of The Spanish Succession. Got some samples from Ebor Miniatures, when I thought that I may revisit the period, with the release of French dragoons, more splendid work from Paul Hicks, and the preview of cuirassiers it may still happen.

Next some Front Rank figures for a commission I am doing, James II's Horse Guards trumpeter and a general from the same period.

More colour tomorrow, I am off to GHQ for a Seven Years War game

    1. Projects get done when they get done, it's a pastime not a race.

  8. Nice work Phil. I sympathise with you about the need to add colour to the palette - after finishing a significant Carlist War project late last year, working on greatcoated Retreat from Moscow figures so far this year seems a little dull.
