Post by: errant49 on May 14, 2020, 03:41:47 PM
Hi all


Here are two figures issued by one of our collectors friends, Richard,  who intend to make a set with the great Carrousel ordered by the Sun King on June 5th and 6th 1662 to celebrate the birth of his son
The figures are designed by Sascha Lunyakov and engraved by Daniel Lepeltier
Richard will keep you informed about the futur of this set

Hi All
As so to complete what Eric has told, here are a few accuracies. The series should be made up of five sets : Romans, Persians, Osmans, East Indians and American Indians.
Now, only the engraving of the Roman set (8 characters) is in progress. The nest two figures will be issued in the beginning of June.
I plan to edit the other sets following the reception given by the collectors to the first. What I can read here is encouraging.
I 'll not forget to let you know about the new figures.

Before I graduated to grown-up figures (flats) I used to dabble unsuccessfully with Historex kits, and still have some of their catalogues. One of them, from around 1980, shows three intricate figures, beautiful Historex conversions, from the Carrousel, created by David Catley.

I remember these figures which I saw at one of the first Historex compétition I think
David Catley made a kind of révolution among the Historex fans
It would ne nice if you could post some pictures
