I recently received a package of samples from Lancashire Games' new range of 18mm Napoleon in Egypt figures.

Bit gnomish for my tastes.

Sounds a bit gnomophobic to me….

Just because these figures are a bit squat, massively nosed and short in the limbs…is no reason to dismiss them.

If you ignore their proportions, with their resemblance to any humans you have ever met, they are fine modellings, otherwise….

These days you simply cannot reject anything that does not conform to what you think humans should look like…reduced to any scale……….

We must all welcome diversity (I am told that, at work every day, and I am totally signed up to this…it is truly something I welcome….truly………)

Yes, but…well…I mean, come on – an entire range of Gerard Depardieus?

I do like the guy tearing a big lump of a large black pudding, though.

They would be great for Flintloque in 18mm.

I actually like them quite a bit, If I wasn't heavily invested in 20mm I would buy from this range. I prefer a bit of caricature in my sculpts.

"Just because these figures are a bit squat, massively nosed and short in the limbs…is no reason to dismiss them."

Is this the same man who usually praises 1 / 72 scale figures due to their better proportion to the one and true scale?

Alas yes. Saul on the Road to Damascus……..

I recently sat through an all day course at work…it was compulsory…it was all about "Welcoming Diversity". It was a truly marvellous experience and run by a very overweight woman who…..AAAAAAAARGH, there I go again

I really wanted to like these. I had high hopes. I hate being negative about anybody's work but I'm struggling with the disappointment.

Nice painting though. Well done Jonathan.

very sad your all saying these negative things, the figures are not squat or gnome like, but your loss
Go look at the Wargames Illustrated review and on our gallery their are painted samples of the cavalry
