A little bit of fun with Gericault

 

Wonderful Perry designed figure from Foundry

Just a quick post to highlight the superbly sculpted Foundry French Officer of the Chasseurs a Cheval of the Imperial Guard that I have painted up and based as an aide de camp for my General D’Armee games.

I thought I would put him on the top of the staircase in front of my own print on the wall in my Wargames room upstairs. No need to describe the famous original of Gericault’s painting as it known by every Napoleonic wargamer the world over.

Just as a homage to a glorious model we have all seen, what about a reprise of Ray Lambs magnificent Historex plus scratch- built parts. Still seen as the model which gave a new generation of hobbyists inspiration.



Superb!

  3. Thank you for the reminder, I too was inspired by the Historex model on the front of their catalogue around 1970.

  4. Splendid Carlo...
    I think Ray Lamb really changed how people built Historex kits...that model is still as inspiring today as it was way back in the day...

    All the best. Aly
