Charles Stadden

Whilst waiting on certain figures to arrive, I often find myself doodling, as it were, with the paintbrush. Like most other hobbyists, I have a large pile of unpainted lead, sometimes certain items within are - er - years old.

So it was with these Stadden  French Napoleonic figures. Some were from an eBay purchase of a mixed lot, others were from a hare-brained scheme to do the first regiment of Grenadiers of the Guard as a Charge! style unit.

This is starting to look like a series of posts on the classics of wargame figure design of the past sixty years or so.

Really nice figures - slim and nicely animated. How did we ever move on to the chunkier, more doll like, but beautifully detailed sculpting, modern style?

Lovely brush work there, Greg. I am especially attracted to the trumpeter. Are these from the 30mm range, or the 'true' 25's?

Best Regards,

Well Stokes, I'm glad you asked. They are of course in the one true scale - 30mm!
