In the enduring debate on ECW sizes these figures always seem to get forgotten. As Bicorne and Renegade slug it out against Perry and Warlord the slender range of 2 mounted Generals from Trent sit quietly in the wings. Apparently 'Newark Characters' they share catalogue space with Stapleton Cotton, King John, Bromhead and Lady Godiva. It's a strange mix but these are great figures that fit effortlessly into the B and R camp. I've no idea who the sculptor is but they should do more.

It has been a while since a French Battalion marched into view so here are the latest bunch of scruffs. I had a set of Fanion bearers sitting around waiting for the usual Eagle Bearers to hog the limelight so I thought I'd give one of them a chance. Apparently red was the preferred colour of the 3rd Battalion but I have to admit it looks a little strange to me. I've left it unglued so the option of an Eagle remains

They are available if anyone is interested - 24 figures all Perry, 16 plastic, 8 metal £112 plus postage at £10. There is a proper blue and white Battalion coming along in about 2-3 weeks with not a greatcoat in sight. Let me know if you want early photos.
