It's nice to see some accurate female Napoleonic soldiers who genuinely would be able to pass themselves off as men and no one would ever suspect that they were women.

I had hoped, I really had, that this title meant we would get some well modelled "respectable" ladies, whether peasants or gentry. I think the lass in the blue dress with the décolletage might have difficulty in passing herself off as anything but XX chromosomes.

Good fun no doubt and ideal for role playing I suspect….

Somebody should tell the manufacturer that in Russian, Sasha is not a feminine name. It's the equivalent of Mike. And no, I don't have any idea of the derivation.

Napoleonic female dresses were often more daring than today, and often extremely thin cloth, which were see through.
At least in the more upper class.
There was a reason they very often had a cold and died of flu.
But look at comtempory drawings. Interesting :)
The dresses were white and should somewhat be like greek columns.

Oh indeed. Empire line for ball gowns and posh folk and everyday wear (well the ladies anyway), hair up in Greek classical style with ringlets, bonnets for street dress.

Just a few figures for a D o Richmond's ball maybe…….. a few peasants decently sculpted….. Do we really need many more strangely built girls, in what are meant to be military uniforms, but quite remarkably fitted to their physique?

I just tried to purchase some on Ebay. At 50 Pounds Sterling as shipping charges for just six figures, the shipping cost became the deal breaker of the purchase. The seller was kind enough to cancel the order. There must be a better way.

Anybody have a link to them? I looked at Elite who I like, but cant find these there, so I am either looking at the wrong Elite, or they are in a spot i dont expect them to be.

Check spelling on website – for example should be

and "morter" sounds a bit dodgy too……..

But my real complaint is still that no one (or very few anyway eg Front Rank) does sensibly dressed ladies of the period. Loads from a century earlier, or 50 years later.

OK, the occasional Spanish Guerilla with XX chromsomes…..Perry Peninsula civilians too…..but generally the fair sex is portrayed in these daft fantasy outfits…….whether in miniature figurines or the artwork that appears here every so often.

Oh, the confusion too…..

Elite Wargames and Models

not the same as

Elite Miniatures. (The nicely animated but skinny figures, that are always staring into the sky watching for Stukas)

Also try Casting Room Miniatures for good Napoleonic female figures.
