|The figures are mostly Clayton ones with a few vintage and|
DK's as well. The limber and horses are vintage Hinton
Hunt, guns and howizter are by Newline Designs.
The figures used are mostly Clayton castings with one or two vintage figures and a couple of DKs thrown in for good measure. Interestingly there are virtually no differences between the three manufacturers output although one or two of the Clayton’s had miscast bases which had to be made good before painting.

here without permission but hopefully John Tunstill won't mind.
For a touch of nostalgia I have tried to recreate a photo from a 1971 (annoyingly this one is printed without the issue number) edition of Miniature Warfare. The original photo was a huge inspiration to my 14 year old self being one of a series showing the collection of Hinton Hunt Prussian figures belonging to Stephen Connolly.

Next on the painting desk will be those British Light Dragoons.
