Airfix 1/72nd scale French Line Infantry

Postby Tyberius » Thu Feb 08, 2018 6:29 pm

These are the old Airfix soft plastic 1/72nd scale French Line Infantry

I am basing them for Blucher.

I have kept these for 43 years, even though I was not interested in Napoleonics as I could not part with figures. and just when I decide to throw them or give them away, I find the Blucher rules and the podcast Napoleon 101. Considering their age, I am happy with them. http://napoleonbonapartepodcast.com/

I hope you like them. Constructive comments are welcomed.

Hey Tyberius,

Nice work on the old Airfix figures I had several boxes of these no idea where they are now!

Look forward to seeing your Blucher AARs!

Cheers!
