Hi Ged,
great idea for a wargaming period/scenarios totally neglected by minis makers! The selection of figures and their poses is outstanding and they really look historically accurate. Looking forward to additons for Cavarly and artillery and maybe in due time also Piedmontese/Savoy army ?!
thank You and congrats for the excellent work!
Federico

books.booklets that are essential are

1.Red Shirts "Garibaldi's campaign in Southern Italy
by LuigI Cssali old 1989 Ulster Imports campaign
booklet but excellent information

2.L'Escerito Delle Due Sicilie interest Italian
publication by Stefan Ales 1975

3.L'Escerito Ponrificio Da Castelfidardo a Porta pis 1860-1870 same publisher..Massimo Brandani 1976

found after years of looking!

more readily availabl L'Escercito Boronico 1830 al 1861
by Crociani/boer9/Florentino two huge volumes…
but wonderfully illustrated

there are many more ..but as is apparent most information
understandably eminates from Italy.

I will be bringing out my own uniform plates on the subject

Excellent work, very nice and historically accurate miniatures(need wait some days to do an order, but sure I'll do).
They are perfect for the line infantry.
But I hope You consider the light infantry too:

Cacciatori(Light Infantry) in Bigia,Cacciatori with the new jacket, Cacciatori in greatcoat all with pants inside the gaiters like variant and covered shak˛ or fatigue cap.

Many thanks for this new range.

Claudio.

Great news Ged. Having seen these figures in the wargames press and in "The Foreign Correspondent", I have to say that these are some of the best figures yet. The poses are good and the attention to detail is superb – just what we've come to expect from Gringo40s.

As usual, Ged has come up with a range that's different and not available from other manufacturers.

Great figures Ged and good luck with the range.

Best wishes davejl

Saw the Garibaldi range "in the flesh" at Derby the other week. boy are they beautiful. So well sculpted and they show their great sculpting off with such fantastic painting. Showed them to my friend and I don't think he's stopped drooling yet!!!

great figures Ged.

The figures look superb but although I'm reasonably familiar with the political and general military movements of the campaigns, I have very little knowledge of the organization of the armies involved. Anything out there in English to help please?
What rules are people using for this period?

jammy four Sponsoring Member of TMP18 Feb 2016 9:59 a.m. PST

Prussianmonty…………I have gathered a large amount of information over the years and am writing a book from a wargamers view as most of the information is in Italian. Luigi Casali wrote an excellent booklet for Freicorp which I used as a basis for the range way back when
glad you like the figures…………..
ps have a look at the beginning of the thread
I have compiled a short but vital list im sure
would assist you.

cheers

Looking forward to seeing the completed Garibaldi figures at Salute Ged. The sculpts are lovely and the painted figures I've seen are brilliant.

I know "The Foreign Correspondent" review these lovely figures in their mag., and they use them for some of the games at Salute.

Have a great Salute

davejl

jammy four Sponsoring Member of TMP08 Apr 2016 3:57 a.m. PST

cheers for that Daveji…there will be a game at Salute run by
the Continental Wars Society under the leadership of Ralph Weaver and will depict the attack on Palermo using gringo40s figures with terrain and building supplied by ourselves…and Cigar Box Battles superb mats

Hi,

Absolutely wonderful. Where does Ged get his ideas from? They're always so original. I just love these new figures and look forward to the release of more of these figures.

But please give me just a little time to save up Ged. I haven't recovered from the last batch of lovely figures you released yet!!!!
