Tom Kitchen..

I happened on this while browsing some other blogs, and just had to share it...

The figure is 1/6th scale (so slightly larger than my usual scale for this period!) and represents Tom Kitchen, who was a private in Meredith's Regiment (later the Hampshire regiment) during the Wars of the Spanish Succession.

As it happens I did actually paint that regiment in January 2008 hence my interest..Thinking Smileys

For more pictures, the background to the figure, and why it was made click [here]

Elsewhere in Steve-the-Wargamers loft, ACW limbers, artillery & gunners were all under-coated this morning ready for some paint brush attention soonest...

  4. I saw that through the Wars of Louis Quatorze blog too, and was so impressed by the work that I posted a link to it at the Ne Plus Ultra wargaming forum.

    The same modeller, Tony Barton, also did a fantastic 1604 Spanish musketeer as well.

  5. Glad to hear that work is continuing on the ACW project. Would you consider yourself a rebel or a federal, Steve?
