New acquisitions - Elite Miniatures for the Peninsular

What a wonderful recent purchase.

I’ve been slowly working up the Peninsular collection of my Napoleonics in-between my 1805-07 gaming.  I have quite a nice sized force of Portuguese and the Light Division as well as extra regiments of Heavy Dragoons in bicornes etc.  Similar to the 1805-07 I wanted these figures yo be primarily Elite Miniatures with Connoisseur also very much acceptable.


Looking fantastic if I do say so myself





Really pleased with these units.

  5. That's mighty magic mate. They are going to take a hell of a lot of stopping and I pity the poor French general. I'd love to see your whole army arrayed - it will inspire me to crack on.

    1. Thank you so much Peter. I really like these figures and they look, as is typical for Elites and Connoisseurs, so good enough masse.

  7. They are nice and the bases are very Gilderesque (that means I like them). IMO Elite mastered, and bettered, the Gilder style - my first metal 'army' was Hinchliffe Napoleonc British (still have a few left) and they don't look up to much compared these.
