    For £20 and 15% P and P £23 in total you get 50, 25mm figures, I am well impressed with the quality of casting. Sadly the muskets are not the best but  I will replace or improve them.

    Here are some photos of pack F assorted British Redcoats from his Jacobite rising 25mm range.  You get 19 marching, 17 advancing, 4 loading, 4 shooting, 2 officers, 2 drummers and 2 sergeants.

    A few more photo’s on this forum http://societyofgentlemengamers.org/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=10609

    A bit of work on these figures and they come up a treat, excellent value.

     Meant to say 25mm probably nearer 28 / 30mm.

    Its worth checking out his web site, there are lots of periods and scales.  Some of the figures are not to everyone’s taste or style but they are good valve for money.

    I bought some Warrior minis way back in the 80s. I wasn’t very impressed.

    There are some gems in Warriors ranges, the old Viking (mostly the Vikings) and Castile Miniatures (medieval) ranges are in the “Crusades” range. They also have the old Gallia ECW and Colonial ranges. Some of their newer ancients figures are very good, though not a lot of figure variants, along with the newer figures/ranges. Some of the ranges date back to the late 70s, early 80s (Elizabethans spring to mind).

    Like a few manufacturers sites, they could do with more photos of their wares. Big pluses are the prices and they are great to deal with and very helpful. Delivery is very fast too.

    I’ve been pondering over them for a couple of years now after getting samples:

    Sergeant and dragoon trooper:

    Drummer and officer:

    The dragoon has the original musket, a poor weedy thing, much like his horse!  The officer’s sword came from a Warrior Highlander, his own was a not up to much (BTW the Highlanders are well worth a bargain bucket).  No grenadiers in the range which is a pity.  If a source of decent muskets can be found then these would look fine painted up en masse. Irregular do loose muskets with fixed bayonets but no idea what they are like, I asked Warfare Miniatures but didn’t get a reply. Proportionally they are akin to Warfare Miniatures but much smaller than Cran Tara.

    Thanks William for bringing these back to mind.

    Those are neat artillery conversions, good idea seeing Warrior don’t have any artillery.  Think I’m going to have to paint up a battalion and some.

    Thanks for sharing William

    BTW whose muskets?

    Cheers for you kind comments George, The muskets on the painted figures are Redoubt and the unpainted are Crann Tara Miniatures.

    I agree some of his figures I think are excellent, some not so good, however photo’s of his products would pay dividends.

    I’ve always had great service from Warrior. Their prices are great and they have some unusual stuff in their catalogue.
