Stadden Grenadiers.

 These chaps have been gathering dust for over two years. My wife kindly bought them for me as a Christmas present. After that they just sat in a box with other piles of metal. I would like to thank Graham Cummings of Crann Tara fame for give me a necessary kick up the a##e, when he came up with the idea of putting on a SYW game at Partizan.
 These Stadden figures have been around a lot of years, but they are still up there with the best.
 Anyway I have completed them, which is great, all I need now, as you will have realised is the standards. Normally I wouldnt take any photographs until the unit is finished, but I know I may have to wait awhile for the standards. I am just pleased that they are painted. Of course I will now have to add a couple of Saxon regular units to the contingent. Starting with the Von Bruhl Dragoons.

  2. Great looking figures and paint job. Although one foot officer in the front rank looks like he had a little too much Kickapoo Joy Juice that morning.

    1. I know Jim,
      The officers and the standard bearers dont have the sturdiness of the grenadiers.

    1. Evening Gary,
      The figures were way ahead of their time, bearing in mind how old Charge was.
      I know they are big, but they are grenadiers.

  5. As you say the quality of sculpting is still very high even when compared to the modern masters. Add in a very good piece of brushwork on your part and you've got yourself a most excellent unit. I can only feel that they need an outing on some good terrain in a big game - in Grimsby!

  9. A handsome regiment of Grenadiers there Robbie. They will form the "fighting-rear-guard" against the pursuing Prussians (can't believe I've turned to the "dark side"!!)

    1. Originally I was going to get Mark Allen to create the flags, but due to unforeseen circumstances I have asked Pete from Petes Flags to create them. Pete is very good bye the way.
      Thanks Robbie.
