Images of uniforms produced by HISTOREX
during the 1960's and 70's
The coloured images come from the brush of M. Eugene Leliepvre
and as cards, were included in the kits as an aid to painting. He was an
Official Photographer to the French Army and was one of the people who
encouraged the establishment of HISTOREX figures. The black and white line
drawings also from M Leliepvre are from the catalogue.

I collected the coloured cards and catalogue in the 1970's
and decided to reproduce them now on the internet as a resource for
modellers, historians and war gamers.
Thanks go to John Stalleart and Charles Haywood for additional
Plates and Bob Hornsby for many of the Uniform Plates that he so kindly scanned
and supplied for this website..
The Historex kits on display I have assembled and painted myself, over
a 30 year period, stating in the late 1960's, then stopping for 35 years, until
I resumed painting toy soldiers in the late 1990's.
I will be regularly
updating the site, so keep checking what's new.
