Does anyone know who makes the viviandiere on foot on the top row of these 15mm figures? I was also wondering about the first figure in the top row (who I am guessing is a Spanish guerilla?), the chap with the top hat in the top row and the guys leading the bullock cart and pack mules in the middle row.11/09/2019 at 17:06 #121896David BrownParticipant
The guys with the carts, etc, are Battlehonours Peninsular range.
The vivandiere might be part of the Battlehonours/AB ranges as well – I seem to recall they had a very limited run and I’ve have only seen one set in a game.

Yes, the Vivandieres are from Capitan Miniatures available from Stonewall Miniatures. Nice figures.

They are very nice figures. I’m going to have to get some. My troops need their cognac ration. https://www.stonewallfigures.co.uk/shop/capitan-warmodelling-15mm-napoleonics/artillery-capitan-warmodelling-15mm-napoleonics/vivandieres/
Am I right in thinking that the Battle Honours range is no longer available in the UK?11/09/2019 at 18:06 #121902OBParticipant
Timecast will order them for you, except probably the Russians which some other UK outfit are retailing.

The Spanish guerilla lancer bloke at the top left is in the AB Spanish generals’ pack.
Tony Barton did a very small run of Peninsula War ‘specials’ for friends, including some civilians and a British officer on a mule, wearing a top-hat and holding a parasol. They were never commercially available and I only saw them in Battle Honours demo games in the early 1990s and in Mike Hickling’s collection while he ran the manufacturing side of AB Figures.
Stonewall eh…? It never ceases to amaze me that companies would let him anywhere near their intellectual copyright… Personally I wouldn’t give him a brass farthing of my money, regardless of how much I wanted the models.

I’ve never heard of Stonewall Miniatures before. Is there a problem?11/09/2019 at 23:36 #121921vtsaogamesParticipant
Don’t know but the inference seems to be that perhaps figures get recast without the express permission of the original vendor.
Battle Honours can be purchased in the US from 19th Century Miniatures, who also do Old Glory 15s and some other lines. But then you have the postage issues and such.

He was caught red-handed pirating AB Figures and FAA. There have been others.

Thanks for the information. I guess I won’t be buying from Stonewall after all.12/09/2019 at 22:27 #122037
