Foreign Legion - 1920s

Post by Fire-at-Will » 10 Oct 2019, 06:07

But not the usual blue coated Legionnaires, these are painted for the period 1908 to 1920 for the Rif Wars. The figures are the new ones from Strelets for the period and they come with a very nice Hotchkiss machine gun.

The desert patrol set has been altered so the Legionnaires are more correctly mounted on mules, with the officer on a horse.

What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.

Nicely done Will, I like the mules and use of the Anglo-Egyptian mounted officer :)

It's the officer in the set Richard, but thanks for the idea, I'll use that for another officer.
