Approaching the 200 year anniversary of Waterloo

Robert Thorp - 7Nov14 5:11PM

The 200 year anniversary of the golden era of soldiering is nearly upon us. Characters such as Wellington, Rowland Hill, Thomas Graham, Napoleon, Michel Ney, Nicolas Soult and Gebhard Blucher all took part in the greatest strategies of time.
Forget the over bearing over priced chalky figures of W Britains, forget the squat stooped figures of Tradition of London.
The real deal is the traditional style of simple elegantly smart toy soldiers that stand with chests proud, hats tall, uniforms trim.
There are none better than the style featured in the British regular soldiers and officers on the War of 1812 series by W Hocker Toy Soldiers for introducing more sets of the Peninsular Wars and Waterloo campaign.
