Updated British Greens Pix

British Grenadiers

British Centre Company Rank & File
The two pictures above illustrate the modifications that we made to the recent batch of British grenadier and centre company figures in the Fife & Drum range. The figures now have the rectangular metal canteen and we added tumplines to a majority of the figures. I decided to keep at least one marching pose for the centre and the grenadier rank and file without the tumpline, for those who like their soldiers in light kit.

I particularly like the new picture of the grenadiers, as this picture shows more of the detail and a different angle than we had in the initial picture. The firing and at the ready poses really stir my imagination as to how a firing line would look with these fine fellows.

The greens will be sent to the caster next week and I should have a better idea of when the master moulds and production moulds will be made. In any event, it won't be long now.

  1. Jim,

    I would like to order one each of the mounted British and Continental generals and the two mounted officers (with horses) when they are ready to go. Please contact me offline via e-mail to let me know when they will be in stock, the total with shipping and handling, and accepted forms of payment. Thanks!

    Best Regards,
