Iron Duke Miniatures

'Hard pounding, gentlemen!'



WHAT SHALL WE DO NEXT M'LORD?
 

Here is a glimpse of products the Iron Duke has us working on presently. We know it's a bit frustrating to see the lovelies on display here and not be able to buy them straight away but, trust the Duke, it does take time to bring items to market at the standard you have a right to expect and the standard his lordship will always insist on. Nothing can ever be done in less than a month, counting from the time the sculptor puts his tools down, while some items have to wait a while longer for essential bedfellows to be finished: for example there's no point bringing the limber horses to market until we have some action packed artillery drivers flailing their whips about to go with them. They say that 'patience is a virtue': we're all collecting these things too, so we're all sharing the same journey together! But our notion is that a discerning customer base like ours would much rather see us getting things right than wrong, and would much prefer to see what's around the corner than be left in the dark waiting for something, anything, to happen!  So, for your delight and delectation, the Iron Duke presents.....

A 4-figure code of British infantry skirmishers (HM 78th), in kneeling poses, shirtsleeves, with Enfields.

New sculpts of Indian Matchlockmen and Irregular Command. The personality figure on the right is the man captured at Lucknow dressed as the Hindu deity Lord Hanuman. The headdress on the matchlockmen is of the Mahratta kind and makes them ideal for the Nana Sahib's household troops. They are good too for mercenaries and zemindari retainers, not only from the period of the Mutiny, but also from the previous century onwards.
