Autumn Review - British Army of the Crimea

 In rather the same format as my other Crimean autumn reviews of the the combined collections of Alan Cook and my own, there follows a series of pictures of the British Army.  There is a slight problem in that I have two Light Brigades on parade and more highlanders than were available at the time, however, It all comes together to make a fine collection.

I will let the pictures tell the story:

    1. Thanks, I reckon there are over 700 figures in the combined collection.

    1. I was a bit taken aback by the size of it myself when I finally finished setting them all up.

    1. I think the combined Russian armies are larger than the British, but overall the allies outnumber the Russians when you add up the British, French, Turkish and Sardinian contingents.

  5. A splendid parade Bob...
    You can never have enough highlanders... and with two light brigades you can throw one away in a pointless but glorious charge into the teeth of Russian guns and still have one left to do something sensible with 😁

    All the best. Aly

    1. Indeed, I can also have a very long thin red line, or a short fat one!

    1. If I had a big enough space I would parade the entire allied army.
