It was with great anticipation that I awaited the arrival of the new release Jacobite/SYW figures from Redbox and I must say I am impressed. If these aren't the best set this company has produced they are not far off. In the past the figure releases from this company have been let down with shallow detail and poor molds. Apart from one sprue with a bit of flash the rest are more than reasonable and the detail is crisp. Great job I say. Figures are said to cover the period from 1745 Jacobite period to 1763 SYW/FIW. I don't know how accurate the uniforms are but close enough to get me the 87th and 88th SYW Highlanders and some SYW Brits to boot. Looking forward to painting some tartan. Pictures for those interested.

Yep – I am definitely in for those :-)

Those are nice. I have some of their earlier stuff-Ashigaru,and cant say that I'm entirely disappointed-they are like other figure ranges that look better with paint on them.

They look great! This is a double blessing. Not only are they a nice figure set, but they also fill a hole in the 1/72 scale figure market with some exceptional figures!

Great figures with good poses!

Looks good, maybe not the left handed drummer though.

Look really useful, especially as I have just finished off the Strelets Jacobites.

Well done that man for posting the pics. I'm after these as well, some nice out of the ordinary poses. I especially like the plaid-wrapped 'sentry' and the bored militiamen. Now if Red Box would just do a set of dragoons…

Not much help really but I have just found a pile of the long lost Lamming 20mm SYW range – these are Bill Lamming's own display figures. Some pictures here on Vintage Wargaming:

and more will appear over the next couple of days on The Old Metal Detector

My main interest in the British figures is to use them (especially the Dragoons) for the '45, along with some Minifigs S Range Jacobite Rebellion figures.

Great, thanks for sharing, these figures will be on my buying list. Also, that is a nice metal figure – which range is that?
