These Britains Ltd figures started as Belgian Grenadiers from the WW One era. I converted them to French Napoleon III Imperial Guards.
Recently I found that I didn't like the result so into the Lestoil bath they went. I have found that Lestoil takes off acrylic paint and any remaining original paint.
They now had a new life as French Marine Infantry who can "serve" in Mexico during the Maximillian I era, and The Franco Prussian War.
I found several images on-line of the French Marines and I have tried to paint them in "toy style" while still getting them "authentic."
