Most accurate Napoleonic model figures?

Postby Mark » November 25th, 2011, 5:48 pm

What would members say is the most accurate range of model Napoleonic figures on the market? In particular I am thinking of the slightly bigger model soldiers that are pre-painted and used for display rather than war gaming.

Only just found this thread. The largest range of 54mm figures is that produced by ATS (Alexander's Toy Soldiers) which encompasses many of the more obscure units not represented elsewhere. the owner, Nik Biberovic, goes to great lengths to ensure accuracy. Well worth checking out. Trooper

I love Alan Perry's job at: 40mm http://www.perry-miniatures.com/index.p ... h=23_42_43

but you have to paint them or get them painted by someone,... :mrgreen:

I really like W Britains napoleonic figures, I've collected enough to recreate the defence of Hougoumont's north gate, I'm hoping this link will lead to a few pics...

and this to some of the 95th Rifles I've collected!

I've always been impressed with the appearance of the figures by First Leigon, I say appearance because I've not actually seen any figures in the flesh.

I collect the older Staddens, Lasset, and Rose models, usually unpainted. While the Staddens and Lasset come assembled and primed, the Rose range are in kits and they are still available on the internet if you conduct a search.

All of these figures are excellent.

Historex plastic kits are again available and are also excellent figures to assemble, paint, and collect.

Hi

As a wargamer I can probably point you in the direction of several companies producing figures!

The most collected tend to be 28mm or approx 1/56 scale (my own stuff is this size) but have a look at a couple of the following links for an idea for starters.......these are my two favourite manufacturers:

[url]frontrank.com[/url]
[url]perry-miniatures.com[/url]

If you want more let me know
Cheers
Darren

New to this, do y'all recommend First Legion? I really like what I've seen online.

Thanks,
