After the Scots Greys, Brigade Games sells three new sets of British Elite cavalrymen in 28mm.

To be fair, Tango did manage to post a picture.


I simply could not copy them.


NB they also have just released Scots Greys and some really nice French. (A Drum Major, a fifer, who looks like a masterpiece , with two Vivandieres)

Posting onto New Products gets less attention, but not really much to "Discuss" other than wish they were in UK to reduce postage costs (Grin).


Ah ha. Lon sent me the pics so here they all are (to be "Discussed"?)

The swords look too short and the heads and hands appear to be the same size.

I suspect the swords are being foreshortened by their angle to the camera. They are at least right for British Heavy Cavalry, both blade shapes and hilts, unlike some we so often see.


One of the things I like most about Paul Hicks work is that he usually gets anatomical proportions so right. Facial features can occasionally be a bit "syndromal" (and frankly miserable!) but the sharp style lends itself to easy painting. I certainly want these and we will see how they turn out. Might even mix them in with a few Perrys

The drum major, fifer and vivandieres in particular all look great. Wish there was a UK supplier.

Nice looking figures, but I don't paint British.

No he doesn't. He is scared of red and scarlet. Chickendroppings.

Fear. Real fear. That is Austrians, in white from head to toe. Those Zastrow Cuirassiers (at least the only problem there was the sleeves and their backs).

By British standards these are a cinch. Now for infantry you have white laced coats (even worse for Guards), you have two different colours of cross belt (basically white of some hue unless buff) over that. Then the straps for the back pack over that. All without the whole thing turning into a white splodge.

For any country's Guards, these are surprisingly plain (if still striking) uniforms. Even the saddlery is plain as heck! (Don't dock the horse tails though!)
