    I particularly like Minden figures.  To me, they really capture the look and feel of the period.

    Cheers

    Roly,

    very nicely painted, shows the figures off to their best. You should try some of Richards latest sculpts for the French and British under my Crann Tara label 🙂

    They are painted very nice Arties, I would buy Midden Miniature’s if they were available in the UK but HCRS makes the cost prohibitive to import them to the UK.  (Sorry not UK but ROUK ).

    Though I believe Crann Tara has a limited range.  Good News.

    Minden are great and Front Rank are reliable figures.  Ebors WSS figures are quite lovely, Nic has a really good range, I’m impressed with the sculpting and his service. It is a pity that Dixons didn’t commit more heavily to their range of 7yw figures as I found them really quite nice to paint

    Jacdaw Figures although large 30mm have a bit of character to them, but then I would say that as I have a stake in the range. Couple of Austrian line figures I splashed some paint on.

    Those Jackdaw figures have painted up really nice “Paintpig”, I wanted to buy some but who sells them in the UK?, like wise Midden figures would love to buy some of them but sadly only a limited selection are available in the UK.

    Have you looked at Crann Tara figures they are designed to match Middens.

    William,

    thanks for the plug. Jacdaw is now owned by the Left Bank Workshop in Australia although due to family commitments things appear to have stalled in terms of releases.

    I now have all the Minden equipment in stock, slowly stocking up on Hanoverians and of course there’s my expanding French and British so we are making progress.

    Cheers for that info Graham.  They are on he wish list to buy someday, still got 50 odd of your figures to finish, along with 120 Warrior Miniatures.

    William, are the Warrior figures from their ‘Jacobites’ range? I’ve got some samples on the way but I’d be interested in your opinion of them.

    Cheers,

    “George wrote” William, are the Warrior figures from their ‘Jacobites’ range? I’ve got some samples on the way but I’d be interested in your opinion of them.

    Yes George the standard bearers and sergeants are Warrior miniature, I think they are excellent figures and the price is very competitive.  However be prepared to be disappointed with the muskets, they are not well cast and are very short with no bayonets.

    It has taken me years to find the muskets I thought would go with the figures, Redoubt Enterprises here is the link below

    http://www.redoubtenterprises.com/shop/?page=shop/flypage&product_id=4893&category_id=1cc1117531bd4cac3101d3feec9a4789

    They do not have bayonet either but they are longer and look good.  When ordering from Redoubt, he is not fast at delivery and only post’s out once a week.

    Graham at Crann Tara Miniatures is going to be selling musket weapon packs with bayonets in the new year, they would fit well with Warrior Miniatures.

    I hope to post some photo’s soon of a regiment of Warrior Miniatures I will complete soon.

    George here is a couple of Warrior Miniature figures I finished today.

    The one on the left has a Redoubt Enterprise musket.

    William, thanks for the heads up on the Warriors.  Yours look good so I’ll likely go ahead with them and get a musket fix of some sort; plenty of time so Crann Tara sounds just the job.

    Thanks again and may your brushes always be pointy!

    Yup, sold on the Warriors.

    Have you got scouts out scouring the country for makers?  Black Hussar are a new one on me but they are very nice, could’ve been tempted to get the lot from them.  No cavalry or artillery though, pity.

    It’s not a Black Hussar figure, but a Huzzar miniature sold by fighting 15’s George.

    Have you bought the book A military Gentleman by John Ray, I am getting it for Christmas.  It’s not cheep but my wife and Granddaughter tell me it’s excellent.

    Oops, found them! They are nice – Fighting 30’s nice prices too.  The mounted officer is a beauty especially with the variations in uniform.

    Nope, don’t know that one.  Now that I’ve seen it, I wish I hadn’t.

    BTW and FYI, got a photo back from Irregular:

    Those fighting 15’s Huzzar miniatures are beautifully cast, however they are about 3mm shorter than the Warrior figures.  The mounted officer fits in well with a range of figures.

    Here is a link with some size comparisons for you George.

    Buy the book George, drop big hints to family that’s what I did and I bought my wife a brilliant Christmas perzzy.
