Hello everyone,

Which factory offers 1/144 th figures representing the British army as it was dressed in Great Britain in 1894?

Thank you

You could go with 10mm British Zulu War infantry and paint the helmet blue. At that scale the helmet spikes would hardly be visible. Irregular Miniatures, Steve Barber Models, Pendraken and Old Glory all do 10mm Zulu Wars.

And for Guards and cavalry would go with Crimean War era

I have painted 15mm Crimean War cavalry, as later period troops, file down the overalls to boots and britches. At this scale other details not noticeable. Next project, Guards from this period remove coatee tails add longer front for tunic.

I think I prefer a Boer War range for "1894" because of the artillery and machine guns and I am wondering if small "15mm" would be better than 10mm since there is no 1/144th scale…

Who makes very small 15mm figures in British Colonial?

Thank you all.

PeterPig and minifigs are on the smaller end of the scale, as well as Essex, all of them are compatible.
