Napoleonic figures 'FOR SALE'

French Light Infantry Battalion.

Heavy and Light Cavalry plus Mounted General.

British Infantry

These figures are individually based for the 'TOO FAT LARDIES' rule set 'SHARP PRACTICE' and with the amended version 'SHARP PRACTICE 2' on the horizon, you have the opportunity to purchase some figures for a great set of large skirmish rules.

The figures are a mix of Perry Miniatures and Wargames Foundry (which were also sculpted by the Perry Bro's).

I have converted a large number of the metal Foundry figures with Perry heads to give added variety. In the picture below, the figure on the far left and far right is an original Foundry sculpt and the figures in between have had head swaps.  

The movement trays are laser cut from and I have textured, painted and flocked these to match the figure bases.

There is a total of 124 x foot figures, 21 x mounted figures and 16 x movement trays.

I am asking for £3.50 for a foot figure, £7 for a mounted and £1 for a movement tray.

I am also including for FREE, a plastic box set of Perry French Hussars and a couple of extra figures. 

This comes to £597 plus £12 postage to the UK.  (Also happy to meet up half way to avoid postage, I live in Essex and work in Central London.)

If interested, then contact me at

Parcel ready to go.

It has been a month since my last post but as you will see, I have been busy.

My last post was the 'grounds for the Chateau' but I had still needed to finish it off with the stable yard. The stable itself is a resin building from 'Total Battle Miniatures' along with a lovely church that they do. Whilst making the stable yard, I thought I just as well make a church yard at the same time. As I had my terrain hat on, I made a load of high walls which I will be needing for the 'Too Fat Lardies' Pint Size Campaign, Kampfgruppe Von Luck.
The method for making this lot is very similar to how I made the grounds for the chateau in my last post, so I will not repeat myself here but just let the pictures do the talking.


 The above picture shows a 28mm Wargames Foundry figure for scale. I have also done some damaged sections of wall so that I can change them around when needed.


The roofs lift off and lots of lovely detail inside.


The church gates and memorials are made by 'Ainsty Castings' and the gravestones are by 'Renedra'. You get two plastic sprues of gravestones by Renedra but I only used the one set, as I didn't want to overcrowd the church yard and needed to leave enough room for figure placement when gaming.


The stables will now bring 'The Grounds for the Chateau' up to 42 x inches deep, 5 x base sections measuring 16inches wide by 8 x inches deep, plus a 2 x inch cobbled road.

The stables and cobbled road can also fit nicely on the side of the chateau if I need to keep the overall length of the terrain piece down, or it can just be used as a stand alone base.


Again, a 28mm figure in the above pictures to give an idea of scale.

The gravestone sprue also comes with a raven which you can attach to one of the gravestones, which is a nice touch.
