Hi...
Nothing new in this post...
Just the old blurred stuff from Photobucket re-uploaded and re-grouped...
If you like it, I'll try to rescue as much I can.
All the best...
Joan

Maybe not new for some, but for me it is, so I am very happy to see your pictures. I particularly love your tirailleurs algériens, I know the amount of work needed to get nice figures like yours.

Wow.

Super stuff indeed and masses of hard work.

I truly hope that Photobucket go bust due to the amount of trouble they have inflicted on their erstwhile customers.

Best wishes,

Chris

it is Always a pleasure and also often an inspiration to look at your pictures. I dont think i have ever seen the emhar figures painted but looking at them i think that there is a great change i;m gonna buy them. They look super just as the rest of the figures !!!

Thanks for sharing Joan !!

These are fabulous. My favourites are the French infantry and, of course, the Algerians which are just awesome!
Terrific figures and beautifully painted.

Photobucket are a pain in parts that other irritants just don't reach but it means wonderful pictures like these get reposted and that's a good thing.

It has made my day seeing these. I love the Strelets / Emhar Crimean war series and have a few myself. Your painting style perfectly suits these. Very hard to pick a favourite but the Russian Infantry just might be it. :thumbup:

Hi...

Some more Crimean War figures to increase the period collection...

Strelets labelled these as a Terek Cossacks. I couldn't find any specific flag design for them, so I've painted the banners with Azov and Black Sea hosts patterns instead.

As far I know, very few Cossack units were trained to perform efficiently as a line infantry. That's why I based most of them like skirmishers, which, by the way, suits perfectly with these guys poses.

I hope you like them and many thank's for your time.

All the best

Joan

They look excellent, once again! The precise painting is admirable, and they match very well the previous batch.

I like mainly this set of cossaks skirmishing with a cape. Super setting between the stones 'n stuff.
