Includes personality figure of Lieutenant Colonel Ewart. There are two cased colours included with the set, as shown in the photos above.  Please note that there is no horse included in the set.  Many customers will have spare Iron Duke horses in hand, but for those who don't you'll find that it is possible to buy a solo horse in the online store of our distributor, Empress Miniatures. You'll find the option right alongside the place where you shop for IMBC 49 You will be supplied randomly with one of four Iron Duke horse castings that we have recommended to Empress as being ideal for Colonel Ewart.  The solo horse retails at £2.50.

Below we have shown how we recommend you model the cased colours. They will come as a one piece casting (left), but it is 'in the nature of the beast' that there is a vulnerable join between the pikestaff and the bottom of the case. The Duke suspects that the world's post offices will snap some of them off in transit anyway, but the more substantive issue is their survivability on the gaming table. Far better we think to snip off the soft metal pikestaff, mini-drill a neat hole  (centre) and replace the issued pikestaff with a length of brass rod, or if that is hard to come by in your part of the world, with a length of the usual stiff florist's binding wire. Surely there are no parts of the world where there are neither model shops, craft shops or florists. (No, please don't write in from the Sahara or the Kalahari just to prove your point!).  Hey presto (right) you young ensigns are all ready to follow the jocks through the mousehole in the wall of the Secunderabagh (bet I've gone and spelled that wrongly!).
