Worth going to the loads more pics….brilliant

My favourites, the Netherlands HA, with Nassau grenadiers a close second.

AB are brilliant too. The duo carrying the wounded officer. We'll forgive the Peninsula "shako" and bicorne look on some…they must be 28th, before they adopted the new badge.

No! Just went back as it dawned on me that maybe……….

Silly me. The yellow sash……Hanoverians! Nice one!!!!

Hard to believe these are 15/18mm. Congratulations…..

Beautiful work Dan!
My favourite are thec18th Hussars, painting Vandyke on 15's! Then tartan on the 92nd!

Excellent job!!! Love the Nassau grenadiers and Higblanders, especially. AN 18's are fabulous figures and you did them justice!

WOW!! Those are 15s??!!

No, they are 18mm. Very nice work too.

I tend to call these 15/18mm. Just as some ranges are true 25mm, some very much 25/28mm in-betweeners….and some of the 28mm are very stocky chaps who would mix well with 30mm ranges!

It is the superb proportions in this small scale that impress me. In larger scales, truly, size does not matter, but wrists that hang below one's knees and upper arms wider than thighs are what does annoy me.

TBH I hate the whole 15mm, 18mm, 20mm, 25mm, 28mm, 30mm differentiation, because if truth be told, it really should be, 15mm, 16mm, 17mm, 18mm, 20mm, 22mm, 24mm, 25mm, 28mm, 30mm, and 32mm, but that's just stupid, so I use, 15mm, 20mm, and 28mm.

Wot, no 1/72? You have totally and shamelessly dodged the whole scale issue.

A completely separate can of worms. 1/72, 1/76, etc etc……not the height of the figures from toes to eyes…or is it to tops of heads…or is it to tops of hats? That is maybe why scale driven figures (almost all from Germany in metal anyway) get the anatomical proportions right. They do look like little humans…even in plastic they do…even in plastic (wind up for Marc)

But this is still brilliant work

All I know is that if you place these "18mm" figures next to my "15mm" figs, they are way bigger. AB figs are closer in size to my "20mm" figs. This was done deliberately to increase the sell of AB figs and probably the same goes for Blue Moon.

Rallynow Supporting Member of TMP16 Jul 2017 9:52 p.m. PST

But it had the opposite effect on me. I won't by them because I have too much invested in 15s. In my club we often have to combine our collections in order to do a large scenario. My fellow members also have 15mm figs and AB or Blue Moon can't even be on the same table.

So they are missing out on a whole bunch of potential customers. They are lovely figures and if they were 15s I would buy them to start another Napoleonic army.
