Looks great, shows a lot of promise. There has always been a dearth of CQC Napoleonic figures. I do smaller battles and scenes for a farm or Bridge or some kind of fortification so I've always needed more action oriented figures. I like yor ACW figures so I will be standing by,thanks

Dear Sir, Dear Traveller1865,

thank you for the first Napoleonic pictures.

I am a great fan of your work - I like the variety of your figures .
But I am only collect Napoleonic Figures. Please - I and some other
collectors need British/Dutch/Belgian/Nassau/Prussian/French and
more for close combat, wounded and dead figures/horses.
For example - I have a diorama "Waterloo 1815" and need KGL and
French for a close combat scene...

I hope that we get (can buy) a lot of new Napoleonic Figures...

Best wishes
Thomas

Great to hear, also let me know size of barel in 1/72 you want since I suspect you have good/better knowledge about this so we can use it as standard.

I really wish we could accomodate all wishes, it is very expensive to convert these models to Napoleonic figures, it's hard and also takes time. So it might take time, for those who can't wait for a specific pose, almost same deal applies to custom character as ACW, and existing pose can be turned into a British soldier for around 25 euros, cheap some say, expensive says others but the option is there.

Well the caliber of the mortar is 12 pouces so 325mm, in 72nd scale it's 4,5mm

By the way, as you talk about cost in your former post, do you modelize from photos of painting and if yes what would be the price to do ?

It really depends, but yes we always model from paintings or photographs. I can't say exakt unless I know
exactly what it is to be modelled but new characters always expensive.

This is great news and I for one would buy any Waterloo orientated figures, and already convert your ACW for the purpose. Action poses for the defence of Hougoumont would be much appreciated. Napoileonics always sell well so make commercial sense! Please could they have knapsacks and if you make French, please put them in Bardin uniforms?

What about greatcoats? Any interest in this? Could be a cheap alternative, would anyone buy them?

Dear Traveller, I'd buy French in greatcoats but for some reason I only associate British in greatcoats with the war of 1812 and so no use for the European theatre.

Yes we will probably focus on French and Prussians when it comes to greatcoats.
