There they go… Lieutenants Chard and Bromhead “join” the 24th… at last on the pertinent shelve!

I had my doubts for some days… but it is over.

IMPERIAL MINIATURES (Antony Spencer) new figures won heads down… so I replace the old one’s with the new one’s.

The bugler is by Tradition of London and I did paint it myself long ago.



The old R.P. World Models are going to be repainted just a bit!

Yes, I do mis manufacturers!
Now I will have to repaint or adapt the old RPWorldModels of Chard and Bromhead into something else…

My British Redcoats, Greenjackets and Bluecoats (sailors) from Tel-el Kebir (and other adventures).

It is funny how I replicated my sold collection of 25MM MINIFIGS in 54MM with time.

As you know I went 6MM wargaming after a deep crisis about numbers&table space concerning 25/28MM… old news for the old reader of this posts.

Then Nostalgia struck and I bought (slowly but firmly) the minis I used to had because I missed them!… not even a childhood nostalgia… just the silly fact that I should not have had to sell them at all and simply kept them in cabinets… LOL

For those who need to know they are mainly RPWORLD MODELS; TRADITION OF LONDON; and General Wolseley is a damn fine REPLICA mini made to order by Andrew Stevenson.


I am not changing Queen for King!

In my collection ERII will remain at the head of the Trooping of the Colour display… not that I do not have the Charles III mini too… but there you are I was born in 1952 and habits and frame die hard.

Surely Charles will do a lot of ceremonial but not so many as his mother I fear.

We collectors are like that. I think that I already did a Post about them but not going to check… today is my wife’s anniversary so… a good homage to the Queen of my heart.

Incidentally, Jack Duke from DUCAL did for me a lot of “specials” that are in this pic try to find them…


PS: On second thoughts maybe… just maybe… I will paint a King Charles III… he is from my generation after all…

British Artillery. Mountain Guns by TRADITION OF LONDON and other various makers (RPWorld Models and others).

I am not a fan of Artillery, give me an Infantry Soldier or a Cavalry one any time… I do not know why but it is so… As an Infantryman myself I suppose I do not like to be a target of incoming Artillery fire… whatever… I do not have an extensive collection of models about that theme.

But of course you need them if a completist.


Above two sets of Mountain Batteries. Below Guns and Machine Guns.

A bit of Pomp and Circumstance. The Household Cavalry (DUCAL 54MM)

There are parts of my Collection that do not move at all… they were completed to my satisfaction and that’s that.

BUT… if I started anew they would be the first one’s I will build… see what I mean?

The British Household Cavalry Life Guards and Blues&Royals is that special part of my voyage ineludible because I was always in awe of the magnificent pageantry and display.

So here you have them in all their splendid uniforms.

Alan Harrison’s beautiful (and magnificent) Collection!

Those cabinets are very similar to mine but they include vintage Toy Soldiers by Lucotte and other niceties I can not afford… also is much more bigger a collection than mine… Congratulations!


More exotic!
Quite mixed subjects
Lots of Cavalry
And more…
Say WOW! if you please…

“MY” Royal West Kent Regiment.

It sounds silly maybe, but I first bought a box of them in the old Tradition of London shop (no longer there I fear). And it expanded… and grow… and I even painted some casts myself… and asked for specials to Jack Duke (DUCAL) who obliged… and then he did the Colours… and the Band… and I did the Pioneers… and it took years to complete as it is now… and had lots of FUN doing it!

So here you have it (I did a Post showing a close up of the Band no long ago), A General’s Inspection of The Royal West Kent in 54mm (Three shelves in the small cabinet in Pal).


The full set (minus some “action” minis).
