British Empire Figures Gore
Whether you believe that “history is more or less bunk”, that “history was written by the victors” or that “history is the study of all the world’s crime”, we can probably agree that, in the words of American historian David McCullough, “history is who we are and why we are the way we are”. The history of the British Empire is inseparably intertwined with the culture, history and development of peoples across the planet, and it is impossible to understand the here and now without having some understanding of the there and then.
It is not really surprising that the history, the characters and the events of the British Empire are of great interest to tabletop model collectors, gamers and diorama makers. Here at Alexander’s Toy Soldiers, we have been providing the very best high quality, hand painted British Empire figures Gore model fans need for their displays. Whether you are new to the world of collecting figures, or if you already have an established collection of British Empire figures, Gore locals should take a look to find out about the great range of British Empire figures we have in stock. Our website has an up to date shop page, but here are just a few of our favourite figures in the collection!
Hand Painted British Empire Figures
Gore based collectors will all have their favourite moments of British Empire history to commemorate, but here are some of our favourite British Empire figures Gore collectors might like.
Top of the list has got to be the individual hand painted British Empire figures of troops in the 57th Regiment of Foot from West Middlesex. The unit is iconic of the British Empire forces during the period, and the regiment was posted across the era to places as varied as Menorca, Ireland, Charleston, South Carolina, and Nova Scotia. During the Napoleonic Wars, the unit served in the Peninsular War and across the Caribbean. The 57th Regiment British Empire figures Gore collectors can get from Alexander’s Toy Soldiers include highly detailed reproductions of units in Napoleonic uniforms, including details such as their shakos, Brown Bess muskets, and even the ever-hated neck stocks the men would wear to keep their posture.
These British Empire figures Gore collectors need can be used individually or combined to recreate dioramas of the formations and firing patterns used in the era. Each of the 54mm figures has unique details, that when combined produce much more than just a static battlefield map. Instead, these highly detailed British Empire figures Gore needs create a dynamic snapshot of the realities of the campaign, the human beings depicted and the history to be recorded. As an example, the General Officers on Campaign set depicts three French officers being kitted, shaved and dressed ahead of battle, and these British Empire figures Gore needs reflect the attitude, behaviour and manners unique to the era.
