Just before Xmas a little package of toys dropped through the letterbox...
These were some lovely early Lamming French...
All the way from New Zealand courtesy of my chum Matthew (aka Wellington Man).
These are a lot more delicate that the later Lamming ranges and looking at them I began to think that they would make rather nice Light Infantry.
And then I thought Regiment D’Issembourg... Sky blue uniforms with yellow facings... what’s not to like.
Typically when you start looking for a uniform there seems to be more than one variation to choose from...
I decided to go for this one...
Okay the coat tails on the miniatures are probably a bit on the long side and I had to alter the gaiters and the cuffs... This wasn’t too painful as I left the tails alone and the detail was fine enough that it just took a bit of light filing and a couple of coats of thick paint to get the result I was looking for.
The Uniform is... Wargames Foundry... Sky Blue 21B
The Belts are... Citadel... Corax White.
The Facings are... Wargames Foundry... Ochre 4B
The Piping is... Citadel... Pallid Wych Flesh.
The Muskets and Packs are... Citadel... Mournfang Brown.
The Greatcoat is... Citadel... Administration Grey.
As usual everything was given a wash of Aly’s Brown Liquid and re-highlighted with the original colours.
The belts were brought up to pure White.
The bases are as always...
The paints are Wargames Foundry and Citadel...
The Flag is GMB Designs...
I must say that I really enjoyed painting these and I am very pleased with the results.
The painting mojo has taken a bit of a dip recently... but it is starting to come back and hopefully things will pick up I the next few weeks.
All the best. Aly
