Eureka Miniatures - 18th Century Musicians

My latest post if of Eureka's Miniatures 18th Century Musicians. They are a beautiful set of figures, if not practical in a wargame they would at least make a very nice addition to any collection. The figures have again been painted by Townsville leading painter - Leroy Simpson, who was commissioned to paint them for Jeff Smiths Prussian Napoleonic Army (the lucky guy)...so please enjoy.

They're a great set and Leroy has done a wonderful job of painting them. WOuld be good to have them playing in a marquee just behind old Blucher.

Would be a bit limiting in a wargame, but man they look good.

neat, they are a lovely set I have two of them.

What is the basing material?

Those are cool. Too bad my armies are 15mm though.
I'm guessing the base is red felt with cut outs for the figure bases to fit into. although where did he find red flocking to cover the figure bases? unless he used bits of the felting?

These are a great set, I sold mine last year. I'm going to have to get another one after looking at these.

Bluewillow and James, the figures are based on felt. This was a fun exercise as the felt is one piece with the position of each figure cut before it was glued onto the wood. Figures then glued on, the figures bases then painted with a red colour mixed to match the felt.
