Guest Appearance #3

This week Paul sent me some pictures of his rather superb looking Hinton Hunt Scots Greys. He started painting them 30 years ago and with the 200th anniversary of Waterloo approaching has been inspired to finish them off. This should give hope to all of us tardy painters!

What a stiring sight - a full regiment of Scots Greys troopers charging. They are all Hinton Hunt castings except for the chap nearest the camera who is by US maker Der Kreigspieler (what a happy coincidence that they made a figure that fits in so well).

 "Scotland forever!"

Lovely brushwork Paul (and some nifty conversions too) – we look forward to seeing more.

If any other readers of this blog want to send pictures of their collections please feel free to do so and I will endeavour to post them (you can contact me via the email address in my profile).

Love 'em! The RSGs are, perhaps, my favorite regiment to see portrayed in miniature.

Best Regards,

Well a good job is always spoiled by rushing it. Those figures are well worth waiting for.

They looked strangely familiar until I remembered that they are the cavalry figures doing dressage through a shell device on the cover of Advanced Wargames.

Great models. Haven't seen a complete unit of these yet.

they look magnificent. Respect. I have just finished a Prussian lancer regiment after a mere forty years. Ian, don't show the Greys to the 45ieme.

Stryker said...

Thankfully I now also have the 105ieme to back them up!

Great photos, so evocative.

Stryker said...

"Would that there were more of the Greys..."

Fabulous looking unit. Congrats to Paul and thanks to you for posting Ian. It's great to bring the 'work' of others to the attention of our wargaming e-community.

Very nice indeed. I am the proud owner of some HH ACW figures which are inching towards the front of the "what-to-do-next" pile. Would they be allowed?

Regards,

Matt
