|Suitable for 1740-50?|
I have about six Regiments worth of Crusader French and need to add to these - but with what! The Old Glory fellows are decent and I have some of their WSS offerings - also nice. Elite is a distinct possibility as that marching fellow is spot-on.
Then it came to me - a revelation!
I re-examined the Wargames Factory WSS sprues (I have a good many) and decided that the figures, although dated, look pretty acceptable for a 1740-50 setting. The only things I will avoid are the "curly wigs" as they were rarely sported at that juncture. At present I have chosen some components and will do a little "how-to" assemble them slot at a future date.
As it stands, immediate plans are to get the Citadel finished and painted, build a small Eastern European village (also usable with my WW2 project) and to paint (yes PAINT!) a few figures. The latter is somewhat daunting as I haven't painted properly since the early 90s! I think I know what I am doing but failing eyes and premature senility may cause them to look like a dog's dinner - we will see.
Anyway - Happy Saint Patrick's day to all the Wild Geese out there.
