Ged reminds me that this is his first foray into the British resistance to Napoleon. Henry Paget, Lord Uxbridge (and Marquis of Anglesey yet to be) in 28mm. He has both his legs so far anyway and does look as though he will be great fun to paint.

Nice to see the variation on the usual Waterloo rig, that is generally modelled

Wonderful looking figure! Thanks deadhead!

I'll be honest. I would lengthen his legs considerably, hip to knee and knee to ankle, both. But the modelling looks outstanding and the proportions are a matter of personal taste…..

I agree with deadhead. Otherwise this figure is an outstanding sculpt.

Also agree this is a great figure, the best version of Uxbridge I have seen. I agree with Deadhead on the legs, but probably wouldn't have noticed if it wasn't pointed out.

What a great figure!
I will be paying close attention to how any of you 28mm guys choose to paint him up!

wrgmr107 Jul 2017 3:29 p.m. PST

Maybe he was short? The legs do look a tad short, but painted up and on a gaming table who would notice.

The more I think of it, he may not be the Waterloo rig, but he is the best Uxbridge around in 28mm and will be very popular, as in the Peninsula "look".

Nice figure. He could also serve as Sir Stapleton Cotton in the Peninsula.

Now this may well be his "much of the 100 Days" look, but he looks younger, as clean shaven, and it does strike me as more Peninsula somehow. Which makes a really nice change I think.

There seems little doubt that, on the Big Day he wore the shako with three rows of brass rings and the feathered plume, as shown in Plas Wotsit in Welsh

Plas Newydd, in Anglesey it is called. Always wanted to go there. Twice nearby, but both times missed it. The provenance of the shako seems definite, even though its shape and, especially, the feathered plume look maybe the fashion of five to ten years on, in British service. Guess he was a beau and a trend setter!?

"One Leg" is well worth a read indeed.

jammy four Sponsoring Member of TMP11 Jul 2017 9:00 a.m. PST

"one leg" is indeed a splendid read…and widely available
second hand…….Paget is on his way to Griffin Moulds JJP ltd for them to work their magic!
