    Does anyone know who produced this figure and if it is still available? The one pictured is listed on eBay as Tradition and 6inches tall but can't find anything on web that matches. Wanted to find it new if possible.

    Definitely a conversion of the David Grieve Figure, with pouches swopped around :-0

    Yes, I couldn't quite understand the pouch switch either, makes no sense at all, but it's obviously the same figure, and if so it's 100mm and no where near six inches high.

    Just to confirm what Helm said, this is not the AQM (or DEK as he sometimes traded) figure "The Last Round". This was actually a 75mm figure and was part of a three figure vignette with a wounded soldier offering "the last round" to the standing figure. A drummer was later added. The strange thing is that AQM already had a 80mm version of this figure based on Kipling's writings, sold as "A Gentleman in Kahki". We now own these figures and produce limited runs from time to time. By the way Helm, that's not a bad photo. Do you have any more that we could use for marketing? We still have the original box art which is, to say the least, dated!

    Hi Jackie I can easily take more if you need although I'm embarrassed to say I painted it a long time ago and it's not a great paint job :unsure: drop me a pm with which details of what you want in the way of pics and I'll oblige no problems

    Martin - is this figure in your stash? If it is when did you get it? I thought the casting looks a bit soft , particularly around the face. Be interested to know what you thought.

    It is probably the flash of the photograph.
    The figure is available from Bonapartes to this day

    I've had that figure laying around for years. I think Graham is right it's just the photo.:) It's a excellent casting.(I don't know where the other bits are though!)
