Jacklex British Colonial Infantry and Artillery

These pictures provide a few more glimpses of the Jacklex British Colonial range. The top picture shows a some of the poses available (in various stages of painting). From left to right they are:

  • C8 Colonial British army gun crew (1 of 4 poses in the set)
  • B9 Highland officer marching
  • B16 Highland infantry marching (back view)
  • C9 Colonial Indian army gun crew (1 of 4 poses)
  • B16 Highland infantry marching

The second picture shows more of the gunners, and compares them to some conversions of Airfix and Esci figures. In this image, the models are (left to right):

  • An Esci ensign painted as an artillery officer (painted by C Turnitsa)
  • 2 gunners from Jacklex, set C8
  • A Maxim naval gun crew converted from an Esci ensign, and three Airfix ACW gunners
  • 2 gunners from Jacklex, set C9

In both cases, click on the image for a larger version.
