These are some of the most delightful figures I have painted.  Beautifully engraved, figures just dripping with disdain for those not worthy...  Unlike me I painted both sides.

Looking forward to seeing some paint on these Mark, they are beautiful. I also have this set but missing four.

They are going under the brush.  They do look beautiful in tin but, the are amazingly colorful painted.  Too much fun to pass up.

Very nice figures indeed!
Are you going to paint them or leave them in original shine?
These Mignot flats are lovely in general - I like them very much!
Best regards:

Mignot - Court of Louis XIV

Good year for me and Mignot!  Thanks to Ebay Germany and a lovely collector from France I have another of my must have sets for my collection - the Court of Louis XIV.


It represents Louis XIV as well as key members of his family, cabinet and mistresses.  I am missing one figure - Colbert in clerical robes (I would love to get him if anyone has an extra by the way) but, otherwise it is complete.

Eric Talmant has a wonderful example in his gallery - http://www.intflatfigures.org/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=785

as well as this fine example by Metayer from Eric's collection as well - http://www.intflatfigures.org/index.php?topic=969.msg5940#msg5940

There are also excellent examples in the Mignot book by Krannich & Vullinghs as well as Bistulfi's site.


I should have my le Roi started tomorrow.
