Thanks.What's a good book on the conflict?

For a general history, I'd start with "The Crimean War, A Clash of Empires" by Ian Fletcher and Natalia Ishchenko. Other general histories are "Crimea, The Great Crimean War 1854-1856" by Trevor Royle, and "The Crimean War, A History" by Orlando Figes.

Great War Miniatures has a range of French for the Crimean War but the range is currently suspended due to staff shortages with Covid but I would think that they will be getting added back in the shop soon.

Thanks for the info on the books and I was wondering what happened to Great War's range.

I checked out WF;s figures.There is just too many same poses in each set for me.

There is also Britannia and Ebor that make Crimean War figures. Though I don't think Ebor does any French…
