It is funny how I replicated my sold collection of 25MM MINIFIGS in 54MM with time.
As you know I went 6MM wargaming after a deep crisis about numbers&table space concerning 25/28MM… old news for the old reader of this posts.
Then Nostalgia struck and I bought (slowly but firmly) the minis I used to had because I missed them!… not even a childhood nostalgia… just the silly fact that I should not have had to sell them at all and simply kept them in cabinets… LOL
For those who need to know they are mainly RPWORLD MODELS; TRADITION OF LONDON; and General Wolseley is a damn fine REPLICA mini made to order by Andrew Stevenson.
In my collection ERII will remain at the head of the Trooping of the Colour display… not that I do not have the Charles III mini too… but there you are I was born in 1952 and habits and frame die hard.
Surely Charles will do a lot of ceremonial but not so many as his mother I fear.
We collectors are like that. I think that I already did a Post about them but not going to check… today is my wife’s anniversary so… a good homage to the Queen of my heart.
Incidentally, Jack Duke from DUCAL did for me a lot of “specials” that are in this pic try to find them…
PS: On second thoughts maybe… just maybe… I will paint a King Charles III… he is from my generation after all…
I am not a fan of Artillery, give me an Infantry Soldier or a Cavalry one any time… I do not know why but it is so… As an Infantryman myself I suppose I do not like to be a target of incoming Artillery fire… whatever… I do not have an extensive collection of models about that theme.
It sounds silly maybe, but I first bought a box of them in the old Tradition of London shop (no longer there I fear). And it expanded… and grow… and I even painted some casts myself… and asked for specials to Jack Duke (DUCAL) who obliged… and then he did the Colours… and the Band… and I did the Pioneers… and it took years to complete as it is now… and had lots of FUN doing it!
So here you have it (I did a Post showing a close up of the Band no long ago), A General’s Inspection of The Royal West Kent in 54mm (Three shelves in the small cabinet in Pal).
