Re: Re: Re: Heavy Brigade, Turks and British Grenadiers
CW British Grenadiers with those awesome bearskin hats, in both winter dress and summer dress, as well as Turks in both summer colors and winter colors, in those awesome Fez's would be very popular with any child of toy soldier collecting enthusiasm.

Grenadiers charging up the height at the Alma in full dress would be my favourites. This battle is more colourful than Inkerman where nearly all the troops fought in greatcoats. On the other hand, Inkerman is an interesting battle. So I would say we need a good big set with greatcoated British in different headgear.

Tumbling Dice do 20mm (metal) Guards in overcoats. Their heads come separately, so I imagine they are also selling the same castings with other headgear. I already have some of these, so my preference for Strelets is the Alma over Inkerman.
After all, my Airfix guardsmen can only fight so many battles before someone notices that they are wearing uniforms from the 1950s, not the 1850s!
