W. Britain Logo


***

We are pleased to be able to carry the W. Britain line of model soldiers.

There is, to our knowledge, no other retailer of finely crafted model soldiers in the region between Montreal. Toronto and Ottawa.

Visitors to Fort Henry in Kingston (which now sadly has very few nice models in its gift shop) may find it worth travelling a few minutes West to see what we have on our shelves.

The Napoleonic Period

France

Général Édouard de Colbert, 1815 (WB 2008 Collection # 36009) @ $34.95

Colbert commanded the 1st Division of Guard Cavalry (the 2e Regiment and the Polish Lancers) at Waterloo where, wounded, he led one of the many useless and virtually suicidal charges against British squares on June 16th. Colbert had commanded the 2e Regiment in Russia in 1812 and in the 1813 German campaign. Not one of Napoleon's better known general's. but not the less worthy for that.

The Highland Regiments

Wellington has been quoted as saying of his soldiers, particularly the Highlanders, "I don't know how they affect the enemy but, by God, they scare me!" This bunch certainly served him well.

The 95th Rifle Regiment (Green Jackets), 1815

The rifle was an artificer's innovation when introduced in the late 18th century. The Rifle Regiment quickly established the superiority of its weapons, but the Army's inherent conservatism kept the 'Brown Bess' musket, with its inferior range and accuracy, the prdominant arm at Waterloo.

The Sharp's Rifles, etc. television series offers a gritty depiction of a small part of this regiment, and a highly imaginative series of adventurs of the hero (Finally, Sean Bean plays a good guy!). The uniforms in this series are splendid, if occasionally ratty and other times imaginative.

95th Rifleman, Standing Firing #2 and Kneeling Firing #2

To be listed.

British Cavalry

Britsh Cavalry had a reputation for dash, bravery and skill, but also for an exuberance in charging that often caused disastrous. Another quote (I think) from Wellington in Waterloo was along the lines of "There go the best horses and horsemen, the worst led."
