Elite Miniatures 52nd Oxfordshire Light Infantry

Elite Miniatures Peninsular British from the brush of talented brush of Nathan Vinson
 As the new year turns over it is a great time to reinvigorate the Napoleonic Peninsular project with another famous unit of the Light Division.  The 52nd was a versatile light infantry unit that served well in Holland, Spain and Portugal, France and at Waterloo.  These figures are from the wonderful range of figures from the talented Peter Moreby of Elite Miniatures in the UK.  His man in the antipodes is the very well known and talented Nathan Vinson who represents the range superbly.

















Beautiful GMB Flags from the wonderful Grahame Black - great guy and great service!

  1. Man I love elite figures, great painting. Looks like from a magazine cover!

    I had s huge amount of these at one point but traded them away as I just don't have the space to store 28mm armies.

    brilliant!!!

  2. Wonderful looking troops and terrain. As noted by Paul, worthy of a cover photo.

    1. Cheers Dean - the animation of the sculpts is what sets apart Aelite and Connoisseur in my opinion. They look so good together in a regiment if this size and just look so good en masse.

  3. Absolutely smashing. Nathan's a talented lad and no mistake. His ACW and Colonial games are seriously good eye candy too.

    1. Hi J - The buildings are from the old glory pirates range long discontinued unfortunately. I remember thinking at the time it would be perfect for my plans for the Peninsular. Thanks for your kind comments.
