Revell 30 Years War Figures



The figures I'm showing today are from two sets of Revell. They are from the Revell set 02556 Imperial Infantry and the Revell set 02557 Swedish Infantry. I painted them for English Civil War purpose. Like many other painted figures of me they go in a box for later use. Maybe one day, when I painted enough figures of this period I'll make a dio with them.
 
 
 
 
 
The lances are Original like they came out of the box. I gave them a point so they would look more like lances. Historical they aren't right, because they should be much longer. But you know me, I'm a lazy person, so I refused to replace them!
 




Pity that there is only one figure in this pose in a box. Can you imagen a whole square with this figures? Must be awesome!
 
 



Sorry for the not so clear pictures, but I think it is beginning to be urgent that I buy me a new one! I hope you like them!
 
 



And in the mean time I'm still working on my Arnhem project. The checkpoint is painted and now I'm busy with the figures. But later on this week more news about that.

  2. Very nice, for the short pikes, I read somwehere it was customary to cut them shorter because they were too burdensome to carry around on campaigns.

    1. Thanks Andras! I have been reading that to somewhere. So if we both have been reading this, then these figures are historical correct! :-D

  3. I assume you use a tripod when taking pictures, but do you use the timer? Just pressing the button, even with a tripod, can give just enough motion to make the picture just that little bit blurry.

    1. Thanks Ludo! No I don't use a tripod and no timer neither. Just an old digital camera with the macro function on. I Always wait untill he focused before pulling the trigger. Any way thanks for the help!
