Re-Boot Day 19: Painters Arise!

Well we're more than half way through the auction now, and we've a fair number of bids - surprisingly though there are a couple of lots with no bids, and some lots are going to go at real bargain prices.  Is it the old eBay habits?  Are you all out there waiting to snipe at the last minute?  Remember: if two bids for the same amount come in, the first one received wins.

A Shout-Out to Painters

Before I highlight some more of the lots I'd like to make a shout-out to those people who donated time and effort in painting figures for BfC.  I think it's only right and proper that you get due credit, but I don't have a list of who did what.  Can I therefore ask the painters to drop me an e-mail, letting me know which pieces are theirs?

Apart from anything else, I'm sure the successful bidders would like to know whose work they now own.

And On to the Lots...

Previously we've looked at the mounted French officers and the three lots of French infantry, today it's the remaining French forces:-

Lot 5F - 16 figure Coureur des bois -  the 8 figures in firing pose painted by TamsinP

Lot 6F - 16 figure Coureur des bois

Lot 7F - 16 figure Compangie Frances de Marine

and here they were in action back in May...


  1. Edwin - the 8 figures in firing pose in Lot 5F were painted by me :)

  2. I painted the eight Roger's Rangers; the green chaps.

  3. I painted the La Sarre French line regiment (Lot 4F). These were the first 28mm figures I have painted in many years (and the first time I have done anything in this period) so I'm rather pleased to see that somebody considers them worthy of a bid!

  4. I painted the 46th foot light (Lot 7B) - 6 figure light infantry. No bids so far :(
    Had fun painting these guys.

  5. All of Lot 6F were painted by me :)
