Wellington & Co at Waterloo

These are some figures I completed recently as a commission for Simon from http://servicerationdistributionhobby.blogspot.com.au/

We couldn't find any suitable Wellington & British command figures in 1/72 plastic that would give us Wellington, Uxbridge, Picton & Gordon - like the Waterloo movie, so we opted for a metal set from Art Minaturen in Germany.
The figures are well proportioned, the horses are particularly nice, although I did find the detail on these metal figures to be not as crisp and clear as some of the better plastic sets.
We opted for a satin varnish for the final finish - hence the slightly shiny look in the photos. Personally I think the figures look better in the hand than the photos I have taken. I hope Simon enjoys them.

Assorted WW2 British...

Hello everyone,
I have churned out some more British from a variety of manufacturers in recent days. A number of these figures I will probably sell on, along with some other British from my collection. In the case of some minis, I will be waiting for Eureka to re-release the AB 20mm British before I sell off parts of my current collection. I may replace selected plastic figures, some of the Kelly's Heroes figures, TQD with the late style British helmet (not a fan of the look of the "turtle" helmet on some figures), and who knows what else...

Enjoy the pictures:
