Very old old-school Spencer-Smith Bavarian army

A few years ago I wrote an article for the Kapiti Fusiliers website about my very old-school Seven Years War Bavarian army made from original plastic Spencer Smith figures back when I was in my 20s.   This site no longer exists, however.

A chat with a friend today reminded me about this article, so I thought others might also be interested in a couple of the pics.

  1. So much Old School eye-candy!
    Nostalgia indeed, but warm thanks for sharing nonetheless 🙂

  2. Just the way to treat those old SSMs.

    I’ve just picked up a batch on eBay and am looking to take them in this direction with some re-touching.



  3. Very nice little army! It’s amazing how much the use of a technical pen or artline pen can elevate very ordinary figures into a joy to look at en masse.
    It’s a shame they don’t get to see much action…

    Beautiful,just beautiful (and I am not into this period)!

  5. For all that are just ‘plastic toy soldiers’ you did a surprisingly decent job on them and they look good en masse. The black lining works rather well.

    I remember seeing these figures back in the old days of the Kapiti Military Miniatures Society. Phil Clarke
