Saying Goodbye to Duplicates

Incredibly a significant part of the lead pile consists of the same period but in separate scales!

Here are some of the soon-to-be-departed painted up:

Tradition 25mm Crimean War British Artillery - lovely!
 It was very hard to say goodbye to the Tradition 25mm figures Crimean figures - they are such lovely sculpts. I also have this war catered for in 20mm. In the end it came down to the fact I already had more 20mm figures and there are less gaps in that scale.

Battle Honors 25mm Austrian Artillery
I have the 1859 campaign (and a lot of other Continental Wars) in a 15mm lead pile too. Again the figures are first class, but as they have to be bought from the US the import duty alone makes them the less attractive option.

So there you have it, one more small dent in the lead pile!


  1. Beautiful work on these guns and crew, Matt! Those would be tough to jettison but understandable.

  2. Matt - I thought having everything in at least two scales was compulsory! Love those Crimean figures.

  3. Lovely figures and guns Matt!

  4. Gorgeous. Don't know how you can part with them!

  5. They are lovely figures Matt - hope they end up in a good wargaming home!

  6. Those are very nice but the pile must go!

  7. Where are you selling them?

    1. Hello Colin - I will be putting them up on ebay on Monday together with the unpainted figures. I will post a link then.

  8. hello Matt, sorry to see some of your lovely stuff is being sold but i am interested in any 19th century stuff you still have to sell. let me me know what you have and price your asking.

    also how much do you charge for 20mm commission work?

    many thanks


  9. Hello Carlo - email me at and I will list what I have left. Regards, Matt
