    Just put the finishing touches to this 75mm figure of a 95th rifles soldier during the retreat to Corunna. The British soldiers suffered badly during this winter retreat with the French constantly on their heels, clothing quickly fell apart with no replacements so soldiers made do with what they had or could find.

    Figure will be released soon through Reedees Miniatures.

    Love it Steve - This is a period that gives a lot of licence for sculpting and character in figures

    Steve you have really captured the feeling of a soldier who is suffering from cold , poor equipment and a harsh terrain and what the hell am I doing here . Having read Mark Urbans book The Rifiles a true account of the six years with this regiment, these guys really had a hard time which you have captured spot on .

    Hi Steve,

    Good luck with this figure mate,I hope it sells well.

    There'sno doubt you've captured the look of a man freezing cold and tired. The body language says it all. Bravo.

    Mitsutaka, Marcel, Chippy and Tony many thanks for commenting on the figure, miserable was the message of this figure situation and posing.

    Cheers
