Continuing my withdrawal from the black hole of inertia I have continued to empty the half painted shelf.
These guys have been waiting for a coat of varnish and proper bases for a few months. They are metal 1/72 figures from Mr John Cunningham.
A generic 1740s figure they are an excellent match for the 1/72 Zvezdas I have used for the ImagiNation wars. For some reason I went for the Imperial Austrian look, can’t recall why, but one can’t have Emperor v Elector without some of the Emperor’s own. They have painted up okay and at 50p each haven’t broken the bank.
Being a clumsy oaf a couple of bayonets have already gone missing although they are no more fragile than any other metal figure. One can bounce 1/72 plastics off the wall and just lose a little paint!
There are quite a few interesting 1/72 metal figures out there, particularly in Euroland. (Does that mean I live in Poundland?).
