As part of a trade last year I got a bunch of Les Higgins figures. They consisted of both original and copied figures. The bases of original figures are very distinctive and include Les Higgins signature where as the copys had malformed bases
I was originally not going to use the figures however I decided I needed to get more units finished if I wanted to have enough painted figures for a game.
So I have undertaken a relatively quick painting refurb of the figures to form the 10th Legere. The first 18 figures are done with just a second coat of Humbrol green needed on the mdf bases.
The Officer is in the classic Les Higgins pose pointing to where he wants the unit to advance.
I used this picture and my trusty old Funken (in French) for the uniform.
The last 6 figures are underway with 4 original Les Higgins elites and a Hinton Hunt recast standard bearer and drummer to complete the unit.
The final pictures are close ups of an original Les Higgins figure. Beautiful detail but a little wooden when compared to Hinton Hunt or Alberken figures however are welcome in the ranks of my classic Napoleonic armies.
The underside of the base shows the distinctive manufacturers makings.
