From DaveD: "I'm with the Band" 25mm Napoleonic French Cuirassier Regimental Band (180 points)


Dave sends in this marvellously quirky yet very cool entry depicting the regimental band of the 1er Regiment de Cuirassiers.


These are 25mm models sourced from Mirliton in Italy. If you enjoy historical vignettes I recommend you check these guys out as they have some very unique kits in their stocklist.


Dave worked with the kettle-drummer so his arms were better posed. Lovely stuff. The painting of the crestwork is brilliant as well.





These seventeen musicians will give Dave 170 points, but I'm going to place it at 180 for the uniqueness and the detail work on the kettle-drummer. Beautiful work, Dave!

  5. I'm liking the niche entry, a good find with Mirliton. Just had a browse and they have a few bits I'd rather like!

    Lovely painting, too.
