Yesterday I completed the colours for my Irish Guards, which are now twelve figures strong. The castings are pre-1950 lead CRESCENT figures, so I was tempted to rename them the Crescent Guards. I have also included a photo of four somewhat larger castings, painted up as Scots Guards. The Irish Guards ensign was originally a bassoon bandsman. Easy job to drill out the hands, add a sword, and milliput a sash.
