The sculptor started work on these last month and the first lot landed with us a couple of weeks ago.  This initial set of foot includes the line in tunics, line in greatcoats and the bersaglieri.  More infantry to come later this month, so we'll get those photo'd as soon as they arrive here.

Savoie! Viva Verdi!
I'm more of a Verdi man, myself.

As someone whose knowledge of the Italian Wars of Unicorns is like my knowledge of the Dark Lord's Ear Wax - I am aware they exist, but never been troubled to find more about them - though I I do know that both gave rise to a biscuit.

So, please ignore my ignorance. "Savoie" is, I assume "Savoy", and pledges support for the Royal House.

Is "Viva Verdi" "Long live the Green" rather than admiration for the composer. I would love to be wrong on this one, as once again, I find myself at a loss, as the last great composer was Beethoven and since then individuals may have been able to wring out the odd good tune but mostly it's been too high pitched, brassy and somewhat screechy. So, please throw a little light my way. Were the Greens a party in the IWU, or was the composer of Aida somehow a figurehead for one of the factions?

That's just you, isn't it? Changeable as the seasons.   :P

btw, pretty poor paint job.
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.
