    Thank you very much Marc. I think this figure has been out years and really deserves some exposure. A great subject rarely covered.

    Does anyone know if this beauty is still available and from whom?

    Very nice painting Roger. FWIW, some/most of these were sculpted by the great Charles Stadden for Norman Newton Ltd and Tradition, and are very nice indeed when they got the casting crisp.

    Steve,
    I am sure Roger will confirm, but I think he ordered this from the Tradition site the link to which he posted in another thread.

    Hi Roger

    That's a sweet looking figure mate. I'd always assumed Tradition of London were pretty rough toy soldiers not well sculpted miniatures. You've done a great job on this figure and made me very curious about giving this range a try. Thanks.

    Hi Roger

    good painted figure. And I think the figure is it worth. It is not like Pegaso or Andrea as we discussed but a special one.

    Thank you all for your kind comments :) On the card that was included it says Designed by Ron Cameron.

    The figure is available from http://www.traditionoflondon.com/index.asp?page=Home.asp#

    Click on 90mm Model Soldiers on the left hand side of the page. I think the quality of the sculpting varies but there are some good ones, including this chap. Try to look past the standard of painting of the examples shown too.

    Thanks again everyone.
