Staddens - ooooh.

I was mucking about in the cupboard last night and happened to stumble across a dozen Stadden British infantry that I'd bought as samples a few years ago and never got around to painting.

Wow, was I impressed! These are just the acme of 30mm toy soldiers. Such finely-engraved detail I've never seen. Pricey, too at a pound and 5p a go.

To me they look like they might do better for the 1740s rather than the Seven Years' War. I'll get some photos done tonight and see if I can match the codes up to their descriptions.

I also found a "Willie" Cumberland, too. I'd love to get my hands on their Fred the Great figure to complete the "set" - I have a Soubise somewhere.
