Standard Bearers, Medics, a General, and a Bishop

Next off the painting desk from my January Allsorts are seven more VBCW figures in the shape of three Standard Bearers,  two Medics, a General and a Bishop. The first six are from Footsore, the bishop though is from an unknown manufacturer, a part of Tim Hall's generous gift last year ~





Next to move to the head of the painting queue are some Front Rank AWI Hessians in the form of the Grenadier Regiment Von Rall. If I get through them in good time I've two mounted figures by the same manufacturer to make an overall command vignette base for my AWI Hessian force.

  6. So very nice additions to your VBSW collection...
    Possibly the closest thing ‘fantasy’ you will ever get... ;-)

    I do like the Bishop...

    All the best. Aly

    1. Thanks very much Aly, the old Bish certainly seems popular. And yes, I will confess, VBCW is as close as I get to fantasy! Mind you, I'm careful to label it as alternative history in my mind!😉

  9. Hi, just to let you know that the bishop was sculpted by Edward Suren, and is still available (complete with crook) in the Willie Spanish Conquest range from Tradition.
