WW2 British Infantry




I picked these figures up some years ago at a convention and can't remember the name of the company that made them. Can anyone help? They don't look like H&R nor Irregular. I think they might be Adler but I am not sure anymore.

I'd like to order some more as they are a real joy.

Bavarian army 15mm




And here are some shots of the Bavarians:

Top: Weichs Regiment, middle: Pompei-Dalwigk Regiment, bottom: Lieb Regiment.

Austrian Army


I have been working on my Napoleonic Bavarian and Austrian armies. The figures are from a great company in Spain call War Modelling (www.warmodelling.com). The figures are slightly larger than minifigs but full of detail, they are no where near 20mm, just large 15mm.









Here are the Grenz regiments.
