Hey guys!
Here is my latest figure i just finished working on, Franc LeGuerre, French Foreign Legion, Algeria 1907. Since i never managed to find the SS version i decided to make my own, just a simple figure but hope u will like him. The foreign legion has always stirred up thoughts and dreams of action and adventure in the deserts of north africa and im really happy to have made him.
Thanks and enjoy!

Hi Lucas and thanks so much, really glad you enjoyed him!! Really enjoyed making him.

Hi Shaun and thanks very much!! Initially wasnt too sure of which hs i wanted to use for him but in the end i thought 'Frank' would be a fine choice, glad you liked him as well as the hs, for me, is one of the most important parts of my bashes. The base Shaun is really just a simple lazy susan that i recovered in cloth and added the sand for the desert, love how it looks and glad you enjoyed it as well. Picture frames laid flat make great bases as well. Cant wait till u see Sir Nigel, he should be done pretty soon. Thanks Shaun, really glad you liked Franc as well as the base!!

Thanks so much guys!!

Hi Jaime and thank you my friend!! Really glad you enjoyed him thanks so much. You know i was nearly gonna use the SS hands but then swapped at the last minute. The TT hands are larger than dml or ss hands its true, so ill just swap them out as i have plenty of hands in my parts box.I wont use them for my next bash as i have SS hands already set aside for him. Hope u will like him too.
Thanks Jaime!!

Hi Stall Stuff and thanks so much man!! THis is a figure ive always had in mind to bash one of these days and im so glad you enjoyed him also. I went back and forth on the hs's but am glad you liked my final choice, i love that grizzled look of Frank and thought it would be great to use him here. Thanks so much!!

Thanks very much guys!!

Hi IrishJoe and thanks very much! It is a great sculpt i agree and have been wanting to use it in a bash for some time. When i started working on this figure i changed out my original sculpt for him and think he looks great as Legionaire. Thanks and glad you enjoyed him too!!
