Queens Own Dorset Yeomanry. Musketeer Miniatures (Footsore Miniatures) Conversions 2.

It is almost time to lay down the brushes for the enforced June/early July break from painting. The madness of theSummer Term begins next week and experience tells me just to have a break and forget going anywhere near the painting table. So, having rounded off some commission work I took the opportunity to paint up the first five dismounted figures of the Dorset Yeomanry. These began life as Musketeer Miniatures Dismounted BUF/Yeomanry and one of them was a IWI Black and Tan Auxilliary.



What next after the enforced break? Well, some more Perry WW2 Western Desert Italians augmented by some Paul Hicks sculpted 1930s Italians from Empress Miniatures, a few simple conversions of some Copplestone Russian Partizans to create the "Glasgow Soviet", the lastest Mutton Chop releases (twice) and the rest of the QODY. That'll do for a while.

Excellently done figures. I'm very interested in the Yeomanry and look forward to your next offerings in this vain. Shame about the enforced summer break ;-)

Superb Mark, but like you I'm not looking forward to the next month or so - that said there is a rather splendid light at the end of the tunnel!
