Just an update, by the end of next week we will have 24 different figures for the French, including command.
These will be on the website, shown in packs of 3 for command and 4 for line – we have got the Line command changed as it looked as though he was holding a knife instead of a sword. We will also sell all of the figures individually as well – as we are having issues with the website, if anyone wants to see the range so far, email me and I will send you the photos.
As well as doing the head swops for the Zouaves and Guard, we are working on our first Bavarians, Prussians and Wurttemburgers – we will have the first of the Bavarians by Colours.
Cavalry, Prussians and Wurttemburg by Christmas.

Website?

sorry, email me at heroesofthedarkage@yahoo.co.uk – 28mm from foot to eye, the website address is heroesofthedarkage.com – though it needs up dating – if you would like samples, then please email me with your address, I will also email you pictures of the greens/painted figures

it would be most wonderful if you could photograph some of the figures next to a ruler so the size would be apparent. these do appear to be nice looking figures.. i do so want the French guard figures to round out my army. Well done lads.

Ok, I can do that and email you the photos – also, if you look at a couple of the threads for FPW comparisons, a couple of people have taken photos of our figures next to others, eg foundry, to show the difference.

We have sorted out the packs now and have converted a couple of the command figures, the link below shows the different packs, though we will, of course be selling individual figures as well.
We will have our first Bavarian pack out by Colours and the first Prussian pack out a couple of weeks afterwards

Well I am sorry but I am very disappointed by these figures: I do not talk about the sculpting (not the style I love but it is a matter of taste) but the historical research seems very uncomplete for a 1870 range:

you choose to make Imperial Guard Grenadiers in Bearskin where it is known they were stored and replaced by the bonnet de police or even the kepi.
Bearskin is much more fancy ok but it is totally wrong.

But I can not admit to see Eagle-bearers who are not officers! Eagles were carried by second lieutnants and not NCOs.

I think you must make more serious research on reference material or you will loose a lot of customers who are fond of the period.

I am a great fan of the period and I think we do not need another steampunk version of 1870 armies

Fair comments, but I did the Guard in bearskins, because I've always wanted them, they will also be available in bonnet de police – there will also be a range of officers and nco's, as to eagle bearers, there will also be officer standard bearers – hope this helps, also, if you would like a sample, please send me your address.

Bravo Adam,

Awminis,the true connoisseurs of the war of 1870 know that only the third battalion of grenadiers of the Third Regiment of Grenadiers of the French Imperial Guard accompanied Napoleon III to Sedan and that this Grenadier Guard Battalion was the only one who carried his bearskins throughout this campaign (and even in this war) until the final capitulation of his Emperor at 11:30 am on September 2nd, 1870 …

So the figures of French Imperial Guard Grenadiers of heroes of the dark age figurines are valid.

And the third battalion of grenadiers of the Third Regiment of Grenadiers is the only infantry unit of the French Imperial Guard that was in Sedan.

Hello Adam,

I received your free sample, thank you, beautiful figures, but alas incompatible with the wargames foundry.

On the other hand, you should never put chêches around the Zouave or Algerian tirailleurs chéchias who fight in Europe or in mexico.


Best regards


Paskal
