East Riding Miniatures

United Kingdom

Spanish Napoleonics foot
As Delivered

Barrett Scale: 31M/H.
Mixes best with: Probably most of the older ranges that cover this period.
Long Review: I'll admit to not knowing much about Napoleonics here. I will judge these figures purely on their sculpting and what I have been able to glean on the period in a (very) short browse on the web.
General: the figures are done in a neat, clean style which I associate with a lot of JB's work. The casting is also clean, with minimal flash. The figures I have (three Spaniards and an armed priest) certainly look like the other Spanish Napoleonic figures I've seen, both in terms of dress and pose. The muskets all look right too. I think, if I have to level criticism at the figures, it would be that they are larger and bulkier than most of the figures I'm familiar with; a fact which doesn't quite square with the (admittedly preconceived) notion that the Spaniards of this period and conflict were usually smaller and scrawnier than the French and English.
Commentary: Good figures which should paint up very easily.
Historical Accuracy: Four Average.
Pose Quality: Four Average.
Sculpting: Four Average.
Casting: Four Average.
Sources: These figures donated by Tony at ERM.
Sculptors: Jim Bowen.
