British Napoleonic Forces

As modelled by Britains, Timpo and Armies in Plastic!

Just a short post this time.   

I present, for your viewing pleasure, my meagre collection of British Napoleonic Forces, as modelled by Britains, Timpo and Armies in Plastic.


From Front to Rear:

Scot's Grey, (Britains)
 3 x 10th Hussars, 3 x Life Guards (Britains)
5 x 13th Light Dragoons (Timpo on Britains Remounts)


Britains 2nd Foot Infantry

Britains 42nd Highlanders

Officer and Ensigns homecast and converted from Foot Infantry Officer figure.


Armies in Plastic Foot Artillery.

I was a little disappointed in that these figures did not have any of the lace across the chest moulded.
I used very thin strips of yellow decal strip to represent this.   Not perfect but much better than leaving them plain.   Ramrods and Handspikes were replaced with brass wire.

Royal Marines.

Not strictly Napoleonic but of the the period are these Replicant Royal Marines and a homecast converted Britains Officer.


  1. Very cool...nice work adding the artillery crews 'frogging'!

  2. Thanks Mate!. The only problem with AiP is the soft detail. Still they are better than nothing!

  3. Fantastic, Col! So nice seeing such a fine force of Deetails and friends together! And thanks for the photo of the Royal Marines, I had no idea there were any made in 54mm, I was considering doing a few conversions but now I must track down these figures.

    1. Thank You Private W! I must get around to posting the French. With regards to the Replicants, I believe they have improved the casting process. These ones had a bit of flash to contend with. Also, All The King's Men (ATKM) has Royal Marines in metal. And of course X Force intend to bring some out in plastic as well.
