What wonderful figures. My collection is all 28mm, but I'm tempted to get these anyway. they look fabulous.

Perhaps this link is the link the Prince of Essling intended.

Cheers,

You're welcome Prince of Essling. I was glad to find it, which I wouldn't have, had you not sent the original link.

Cheers,
John

yes, thanks indeed. The monochrome is one of a series of these veterans, in replicas of their original uniforms, during the Second Empire. Very evocative

the uniforms are not replicas, but mostly of post Napoleonic origin – some original items apart.

Agreed. We did discuss them before and were amused that they could still have fitted into what they wore in their 20s, let alone that the uniforms survived. The cut is more Second Empire in most pictures, with huge epaulettes and fringes for example.

They are indeed reproductions of what they originally wore. They are Napoleonic, but a different Napoleon!
