British Lifeguards - finished

I have now finished the remaining 6 figures to finish my British Life Guards.



The command figures are Newline mounted on Hinton Hunt Horses. They fit very well indeed.  I might have to buy a few more command figures. Extra trumpeters can have the hand and trumpet cut off and used to convert one piece castings into trumpeters.



I have also started painting 8 RHA recasts. I will be using SHQ 6pdrs with these figures.


I did have a original RHA crew but these are now part of  Strykers collection.

Cool looking cavalry, the Newlines fit in well.

Those are really wonderful Mark, great work with the red.

The RHA gunners are now Mercer's Troops in my British Army and have performed in an exemplary way in many battles!

That's what Life Guards should look like! Nice job.

Wellington Man said...

Outstanding work, Mark! Have you got the Blues lined up too?

Lovely unit - you have to rate them A+, anything else would be a travesty.

Thanks for all the kind comments.

Stryker - I use Vallejo Scarlet which is nice one glossed up. It does however need 3 coats to cover and get a nice rich red finish.

They were looking good in 'development' and are superb as a unit. Great stuff!
