Battle of Aliwal 1846

Hi gents,

I got the brushes out on Friday night and painted this figure from Foundry,I have to say that this is one of my all time favourite figures from the Foundry range.
The figure is painted as a Templar knight which takes me back to those timpo knights I had as a kid happy memories,seems to be nostalgia week for me!

Foundry Barons war figure.

I wish the Perry's would add some more figures to their Crusades
 range wearing this sort of style. 

The figure in the green is the same figure converted and given a mount.

The figure at the back is also a foot conversion.

Perversely this is the army that I most want in my collection but for some reason still only have it in 15mm!
With the advent of all the new shield transfers I was hoping that this would see an explosion of medieval figures but seems to be happening slowly.
Best wishes


  1. I love him! I too, have a fondness for the Timpo toys of yesteryear and spent far too much time and money putting back together a collection from my youth. There are pictures on the old blog if interested.

  2. Michael,

    Those are great I still remember fitting the swords and shields to these!
    I also seem to remember a cataplut with the set!

  3. Nice stuff! Looks like a movie still. Best, Dean

  4. Very nice figures and poses - excellent action photos.

  5. Nice work,
    Something really cool about crusade figures.

  6. Great pose and pictures. That wall decoration is excellent as well...

  7. Lovely work, and dramatic pictures.

  8. Willie, you got some incredible stuff...some of the best I've seen
