Just completed a new battalion for my British Victorian Army c1900. Working through my spares box, and with reinforcements kindly furnished by Paul Watson, I was able to muster twelve suitable castings for the Scots Guards. With the arrival of rifle-arms from REPLICA, the restoration could begin. To be honest, I already had this regiment in my collection, but had dispatched the painted herald figures off to a relation, for his budding collection.
SPECIAL THANKS. I would like to thank Paul Watson for his sponsorship of several lead figure collections on this blog. Having decided to clear his spare/surplus figures, he generously forwarded them on with no other requirement than they deserved to be restored.

Scots Guards Completed (And State of my Spares Box)
I really have done quite well working through my project list. My spares box has been reduced to about sixty castings, of all sorts. With another thirty others being more than two thirds complete!
Footnote, can also confirm some very useful work has been made on sorting out an armoured train. Just waiting for the arrival of the armour plating (plasticard)...... and it actually runs on its railway track..... really excited about this project.
