|Elite Miniatures make some beautiful figures|
|In my opinion the 1805 French range is the finest of all the Elite Miniatures in the catalogue.|
As mentioned in the caption above, I strongly feel that the 1805 French range has so much variety, animation and character in every figure that it is by far the ebst of all the Elite Miniature ranges. I am not sure if it was because it was the first range he sculpted or not however the range of infantry and artillery in particular is great.
|The larger bases in homage to the "Military Gentlemen" himself John Ray who uses this method for his batteries.|
|Imagine charging into those things!|
|The Elite cannons are certainly large and look like they would inflict some significant carnage|
|A Russian battery I completed a while back with the protruding base to accommodate the rather |
wonderful pair of crew with the sponge down the barrel.
The first time I put the Russian artillery images up on FB it caused a polarising range of comments; many loved the diversity however others couldn't believe that the non-regular basing edges would suit a wargame. Each opinion valid and as I always say, whatever floats your boat.
For me I think they look sensational. I will replicate this for my Peninsular collection of figures.
