Les Higgins

I painted these figures a while back but did not finish them. However inspired by the iconic images on the Hinton Spieler - blog - I thought I would finish and base them up.

These are painted as Hessian types and will be used for my Electorate of Furstenburg-Lederhosen forces. There opponents will be the imperial troops of Maxony.

Gloss finished and based on mdf painted with humbrol green (no 80).

I have enough infantry to paint another unit and some cavalry for a couple of squadrons.

You have done a cracking job on them.It was a wonderful range when it came out, and has stood the test of time.
Well done.

Yes, they have a certain something about them. Lovely brushwork by the way.

They look fantastic, Mark. Very well proportioned figures and the right painting to match.
