54mm Grenadier Guards Fifer - circa 1895
This chap was a gift from Padre Paul over at Funny Little Wars. He is a Grenadier Guards Fifer circa 1895. Ross Mac from Battle Game of the Month very kindly gave me some painting advice as it's not really my period. Of course, I was damning his eyes as soon as he mentioned a white jacket, but actually on a 54mm figure it's not so bad. It certainly beats painting a 120mm uniform entirely in white!
This fellow will soon be getting a coat of varnish and will be heading off to entertain the troops at the home of Mrs Kinch's great uncle.
I'm very happy with how he turned out and many thanks to Padre Paul for his very kind gift.
