Jacklex Miniatures - 1904 Russian Standard Bearer

For many years Bob and I had been on at Jack to make a Standard Bearer for his White Coated Russian army and it had always fallen on deaf ears.  Quite literally at times as Jack's hearing has a nasty habit of coming and going very dramatically!  At 90 you can't really moan.

When we met with Mark Lodge the new owner of the Jacklex range Bob, Jack and I discussed the need for various figures to finish this range and again top of our priority list was a standard bearer.  Imagine my surprise and delight when I return from a family holiday to Portugal to find a small package containing 6 Russian standard bearers.

Now I am still awaiting the operation on my cataract but I thought I would nevertheless give them ago.  Not my finest work but they do add something to Jack's Russian army.  The flags are a free download from the 1866 and all that blog http://stracmark.blogspot.com/p/free-stuff.html .

Each regiment should have 2 flags but I only had 6 standard bearers for now! 

Needless to say my eye did let me down and I discovered that I had managed to stick one of the flags on upside down!


  1. I'm definitely weakening and feel that I'm going to have to buy some of these figures 😀

  2. Thanks Graham, the range is well worth the support.
