    Victrix limited , not the best but you get 50 For not a lot of money and they are plastic.  You get a lot of different poses.

    The Victrix are nice because you can get a whole box of Light/Grenadier Company minis. They look great! Excellent work on the mis-matched trousers!

    I’ve never got further than looking at the Perry’s for 28mm Napoleonics, but those Victrix minis look pretty good too.

    Thank you !

    That was something that I saw in the Sharpe’s Rifles series that stuck with me that I really wanted to do when I finally painted miniatures .

    I went with the Victrix Ltd for two mayor reasons first was value. You get 52minis for a great value and second was I went with the Peninsular flank companies because of the great poses. I mean you do get some block marching troops that you need for Napoleonic’s but you also get a lot of action poses that I wanted for playing skirmish games what I was going to play.

    It’s very historically accurate, something that Bernard Cornwell strives for in his books! (If no one has read the book series I do highly recommend it.) Basically, the British at the time were supposed to wear white canvas trousers, but when they wore out they bought local cloth to make new ones so they called them Portuguese Brown.

    They look great, lovely work. I remember going to the rifles museum in Winchester as a kid, they had a massive Waterloo battlefield all set up, it was very impressive.

    And thus begins the next great army build-up!

     

    Two Samurai armies last time…….

     

    This time are you doing the entire Waterloo battle in ‘One mini equal One Soldier’?  It will be grand if you do it!  🙂
