One for All and All for One !

I have long enjoyed watching films and programs based on the Alexandre Dumas novel of the Three Musketeers. For me the 1973 version with Oliver Reed always stood out and I have watched this version many times over. As well as the second part of the adaptation released in 1974. In 2014 the BBC released an adaptation in the form of a 10 part series, followed by another 10 part series in 2015, and shortly the 3rd series will be aired. So in preparation for the 3rd series release I thought I would watch both previous series again to refresh the old grey matter.

Then it occurred to me that buried in my lead pile was a set of musketeers that required some paint. So I set about trying to locate them in the work room, no small feat in itself as currently the Great Hall is in a somewhat disorganized state. Figures found after an hour of diving into various drawers and boxes. I had not painted them when I received them as they are for my personal use and as with all things for me they often get put onto the back burner until I feel in the mood and have the time to lavish on them. I set about giving them some attention, having decided to take a day off work. A bit of a Busman's holiday you could say.

 
 




The figures are 28mm and are available from Warbases. Looks like I am going to be purchasing all the other figures that are available. The figures painted nicely and really fit the Characters in the BBC series nicely.

  8. Superb, Andy! There is nothing quite like being inspired when you take up a brush and it shines through here.
