Re-Boot Day Two: Some Questions Answered

Well the bids have continued to come in - thank you everyone!

Tonight I'm going to answer a few questions that have been raised by potential bidders:-

  • Will you post internationally?  Yes, but postage will be met by the purchaser (this isn't just for international, but for all postage).
  • Would you accept payment by PayPal?  Yes, we have a PayPal account and this is our preferred method (you might notice the 'Donate Now' button on the right of the page.
  • Is there any way to add GiftAid to the wining bid, so the charities get the full benefit?  No, unfortunately not.  We're not a charity ourselves, just fundraising, so we can't apply GiftAid.
If there are any other questions, just ask.

Now for some eye-candy!  Tonight's featured lots are the three lots of French line infantry.

Lot 2F - 12 figure line regt ( Royal Rousillon)

Lot 3F - 12 figure line regt ( Languedoc)

Lot 4F - 12 figure line regt ( La Sarre) 

These lots and all our others, along with details of how to bid are on the Auction Page.

Here are some shots of them in action, back in May (courtesy of Gary Amos).


James did an interesting historical post on the 1759 French line infantry - here.


  1. Just a thought for the "eye candy" posts, maybe include something to say who painted them?

    1. Yes, that occurred to me too, but sadly, I don't know who did which.

      I'd really like to give proper credit. If any one wants to let me know which are there's, I'll make sure it happens.
