Airfix merry men and Marion

A pretty usefull set all in all. Although the bods are a bit on the wee side (they didn´t have proper breakfasts and lets face it, woodland life aint all that it´s cracked up to be) they are still a good set for Medieval levy types.
They lend themselves to conversion quite well too (wether they like it or not!!)
The happy looker (and maybe even the odd unhappy one) may notice a couple of survivors from the 
"Snot River NO TAXES !!" battle. 
These bods are from left to right; Gunner, Halbardier, Gunner
These, also from left to right, Another gunner, Man at arms, Halbardier
That naughty Serrif of Notty wood and his hencemen better watch out the next time they are out walking the deer in the woods............Deer!? Did I say Deer? Obviously I meant Camels...silly me!

  2. Thanks Al. These bods have been in my possesion for over 3o years and as I have set myself the insane quest of painting every ser Airfix ever produced they were due for a repaint at some point. Glad you like them
    Cheers

  3. These are great paint jobs

    I had these two classic sets in my hands in a model store recently and I put them back on the shelves

    Shame on me, the castings will be less precise, but you have inspired me to have a go

    Likewise the Romans and Gauls are now deemed a must ;)

  4. NIcely painted. It's refreshing to see green uniforms/costumes. They're so rare on minis outside of elves or Sharpes' Rifles. These are original Airfix models? Cool. I almost got the re-issued box by Hat, but then the Zvezda peasants came out.
