"… These French Empress dragoons were advertised for sale on E Bay a couple of weeks ago as being from Peter Gilder's early French army. I was tempted even though I have no Napoleonic armies anymore. Luckily I didn't bid on them and the went for over £100.00 GBP The figures are Hinton Hunt's and I know that Gilder when he was creating his early Napoleonic armies used a lot of Hunt figures, so perhaps they were painted and owned by the great man. I would like to think so…"

Loved his figures in books and magazines as a kid. The market moved on and castings changed. But I still miss that old style. Looked good in mass on a table. Still have books showcasing these figures.

Gilder's figures always had "personality" and a character to them. I still enjoy looking at them to this day. He defined the "Grand Manner" ideal of wargaming for me.
