Now this does strike me as one of Ged's most imaginative recent releases for Gringos40 (unless we include the Tonkin War range of course!).

That man Lasalle, himself. I imagine based on the painting I found. This figure is 28mm of course and currently at the "green" stage. But all the extras are to be included as a mini diorama.


What a change to see him in any pose but the classical rearing horse, right arm raised, with his pipe in hand!

Of course, you do know that Hagen do a standing Lasalle in 1/72

But agreed. This is nice and unusual

I think we all, increasingly, accept that what comes out of Germany is usually far better cast, proportioned, animated, imaginative, cheaper, easier painted….but apart from that….what has 1/72 ever done for us 28mm folk?


Except make us weep……

Amen Deadhead. Amen.

and I still recall being an altar boy dressed in the full rig for the occasional funeral in a Catholic Church in North London….in the late 60s….

and for him we would have said;

"Requiescat in pace"

as we did for my dad.
