Supreme figures?

To bulk out my forces for the recent Waterloo game I bought a load of these 'Supreme' figures from Gary at Tiger Hobbies.  While they could never be accused of being the world's finest 54mm figures they were startlingly cheap, already painted and actually rather nice.  The French all sport bicorne hats - save for some guards with bearskins - while the (slightly taller) Brits have shakos.

 



The cavalry are much like the foot in terms of colouring and headgear.  They take paint quite well - as can be seen from this quartet of French troopers repainted as officers.  I have also repainted some of the British cavalry as Prussians and KGL - more on them soon.

They look very good....I like the Vikings Supreme do as well.

Cheap and cheerful ... I like them, all very colourful and jaunty. They should allow you to do even bigger backyard battles.

Spring instead
I've also seen what purport to be medieval Russians - they'd be fine for any nationality.

Sorry - bloody iPad autocorrect!

They made the difference between a paltry and significant contribution to the Waterloo game. And being cheap didn't hurt...
