My latest purchase

Posted by Santi Pérez on 18 Jun 2022, 19:24

This is my latest acquisition. I bought it this morning when I discovered it among a few other Caesar sets on the shelves of a model shop. I opened and took it when I saw that included the bonus Pharaoh figure. This is one of my favourite figures from all manufacturers in general and from Caesar in particular. Another one to add to my collection of Pharaohs, hahaha.

Yesterday I received from Hannants the last figure set from Caesar Miniatures: H105 Modern PRC PLA Troops. :P

As soon as I was able to see these figures on the internet, I decided that I should get them as soon as they were available. The inclusion of modern soldiers in such unusual poses as standing at attention, presenting arms or saluting, made me realize its enormous potential for a conversion that I have had in mind for years and that I haven't been able to carry out due to the lack of adequate figures. I hope to make it happen in the near future. ;-)

Finally broke down and ordered metal figures from Franznap. I had to have Old French carabiners and marins de la garde to finish out the French army. Painting Russians for the last few months I'm only going at half speed. I am so unfamiliar with the uniforms and gear I have to constantly check sources. Painfully slow and so far I only have a single unit of Jagers, musketeers, cuirassier and grenadiers. The Zevzda hussars are incredible models but a challenge to paint. So much to do, so much to do...

It's a very generous birthday present, Peter. :drool:

I like specially the loose figures. I can't recognize all, but the ones I do identify seem wonderful to me, for example those ones from Atlantic or Airfix. :love:

I'm jealous of yours Zvezda Russian Strelets Infantry. Never had a proper chance to buy them.

Nice catch Peter.
