French Middle Guard (24 pieces)

The whole Victrix plastics box contains approx 60 Miniatures. Due to my regimental sizing I did paint 24 first which leaves me another regiment and then 12 spares... lets see what comes out with them..

I have to tell you that even as the box is one of their more latest additions the sprues sometimes suck as hell. I have had less problems with their other boxes when it comes to cleaning up of the models from their sprues. Here we have a couple of things that seemingly went wrong.

Manufacturer: Victrix Miniatures
Plastic/Metal: Plastic
Scale : 28mm
Number in Unit: 24

Dutch Red Lancers (12 Pieces)

This is one of my most favourite Regiments by now. The dutch Red Lancers. I had quite a hard time finding out about the uniforms. Even Ospreys pictures depict them nearly black. Different blogs paint them quite blue and red...

I went for the Osprey variation. The "blue" is 1/3 intense blue by Vallejo mixed with 2/3 of Negro by Vallejo. This makes them seemingly black. If you hold them in the sun or would strip them off their colour it goes blue :)

Funny effect.

So here we go:

Manufacturer: Perry Miniatures
