Just to beat Tango to it….

Announced today the British ADCs we have all been waiting for and a marvellous command group (plus some Portuguese Artillery, but I must leave summat for Tango)

A curiosity is the title "Earl" rather than Duke of Wellington, but that places these chaps in 1812.

I imagine the ADCs would do for 1815 as well, but that lacing on the chest might need some "Suppression"?

and yes, I do know this would do better on Discussion, where it will surely shortly appear, but allow me some integrity

I think the ADCs are designed like that so that a coat of scarlet will give the right impression. Great figures either way. Is it 1812? Was not Picton home for ill-health while Pakenham commanded 3 Div as at Salamanca?

It caught my attention that you have not posted them yet … although I had them ready on my list to make a thread … by kindness … and accompanying the good work you do to overcome the Napoleonic figures before me … I was waiting for you…(smile)

The title Earl of Wellington is very unusual but highly specific to a six month period in 1812. He worked his way up from Earl to Marquess, finally to Duke in 1814.


That tableau (must be such, as around a table) is just stunning.


Tango can still post the Portuguese guns too!

Brilliant recreation of the faces, especially Picton.

Now those are very nice – I feel an order and a painting commission (I know my limits!) coming on.

They are very nice indeed…full of character! A welcome addition to any peninsular collection. I too feel an order coming.

All very nice, though I wish they would complete major lines rather than fluff around with extra pieces like this when that range already has plenty of options.

Austrian Heavy Artillery?
Limbers for Russian Horse Artillery?
Russian Guard Horse Artillery and Limbers?

Ah well I guess they are working plastic Austrian cav so shouldn't complain too much :)

Thank you for posting these Deadhead. These are fine looking figures, as always, but the ADCs' horses have nice variety too. I'm sure the ADCs will be popular given their role in the General d'Armee rules. (To be fair, Front Rank offers a nice pair too.)

I will be adding them to my next order from Perry Miniatures, hopefully along with the proposed plastic Austrian cavalry and earlier French infantry. :-)

I am glad to see that you and Tango have established a gentlemanly agreement to take it in turns to keep the rest of us informed. :-). You do us all a service by letting us avoid Facebook (and avoid uniform errors!)

Oh, and thank you for posting in the right place. It does help. :-)

Mine arrived in the post today. The bare-headed ADC is a one-piece cast. Very crisp, detailed castings – nice figures close up.

Tango can still post this of course. And it would be most welcome.

Personal logo deadhead Supporting Member of TMP10 Jul 2019 3:18 a.m. PST

Yes indeed. I don't think anyone has posted the new Artillery yet.

The Front Rank ADCs. I do like the one in the redcoat on the left. Nicer proportions than many of the cavalry men in that range and likely to be superbly cast. I guess the chap in the overcoat I have seen too many times in other figures and he is just too "flat".

i have about 6 of the Front Rank British ADCs, plus some for my FRench with Perry's thrown in. Looks like I'm going to bolster this up….

This could be a contender for Nitpick Of The Year, but r.e. the Front Rank ADC on the right, beautiful fig that he is, I don't think messages were sent in modern-style envelopes like that. All of the missives I look at at the Public Record Office at Kew are just folded pieced of paper – I don't recall seeing any envelopes like that.

I should probably just pour another drink and then go to bed.

excellent observation

I have learnt everything that Google could tell me about the evolution of the envelope….and von W is right.

Lord Hill, that is not something to apologise for. All want to know is the nature of the bedtime snifter. That is probably the only time of the evening when I suddenly stop…an hour or so, before bedtime. REM sleep is a good idea. Manhattans I can taste all night, Martinis I can taste the next day, Negronis (plural) the same…Amari or Limoncello maybe. Scotch is for real men. Irish whisky is for two of my three sons
