Gloriously Old School

Yesterday Jim D popped over to Fife to deliver a couple of  painted armies transferring to the service of Duke of Tradgardland's army- my lead mountain that is to say.More about the Carolingians later- wonderful Minifigs with those fantastic helmets and staff slingers that mean business. The other army comprised Swedes circa 1808-
I love the painting style of these splendid figures,something I could probably never replicate as I am not as skilled a painter. I am, however, tempted to give it a go in order to provide a worthy opponent for these super Swedes...



  1. An Advent windfall! The painting and black lining is stunning. Enjoy playing with them.

    Best Regards,


    1. I agree with you re painting and black line work,l am indeed a fortunate fellow!

  2. Tradgardmastare,

    What a wonderful addition to your collection. They are quite beautiful ... and painted to a better standard than I could ever match.

    All the best,


  3. I painted the bulk of those figures about 30 years ago.

    I did a few to a similar style just recently, They are not as neat.

    I blame my eyesight.

  4. Excellent additions to the army of The Duke. Look forward to seeing the Carolingians in detail.
