The Last Emperor Constantine Palaiologos

 The Last Emperor Constantine Palaiologos 

 Its taken me years to get this far with this collection but worth the wait for sure the small collection now has its figure head.



Constantine in all his glory.

Beautifully painted by the very talented Steve Dean

The sculpting by EBob capturing exactly the look I was after.

Back posting

 All most a year since last post I had thought that lock down would have seen me posting more but surprisingly this was not the case. Long walks with my dog Bruno seem to have taken up most of my free time, photos of figures being replaced with photos of Bruno I think its now time to start posting again.

The collection continues to grow at a pace with additions to my TYW collection which arrived last month. A new Wild West collection being introduced painted by DJ

.I have James Roach working on more figures for the Punic wars Successors this time around and also have a small samurai contingent on the go.

 EBob committed to sculpting some more Byzantines for me so new foot figures waiting to be cast up.


Bruno atop the Antonine wall which is behind our house
 ( the house sits on the site of the Roman temp camp).
 The views are terrific in all directions you can see why the Romans picked this spot.

Wild West natives

Down Mexico way I have picked up some Apache
painted by Bugsda very nice work will post some pics at some point.

DJ at work here.

Mutiny

Hi gents hope this finds you all well and keeping safe. I haven't been posting for some time as work has been extremely busy but the collection keeps growing non the less. I have a few collections on the go at present Indian mutiny being one of them this is actually the 4th time I have started this collection most of the other three having been sold off over the years.


A busy street scene with some old and new figures.
I repainted the rope trick performer earlier on this year.

Some recent arrivals painted by DJ.


 Iron Duke figures with Foundry lady.


The lady in this pic is a conversion by me.


Loyal Sikhs & British command.


Foundry lady in the background.

I really like the Iron Duke figures.
Some mounted gentlemen.
And old foundry figures still standing the test of time.




Best wishes
