In Memoria.

I was contacted by Graham Cummings from the 'A Military Gentleman' Forum asking me if I would like some 40mm Prince August SYW figures that belonged to his friend Lee Maxwell who had sadly died , I was overwhelmed by this kind offer and said that I would be honoured to accept these figures and give them a good home .


They arrived today , the figures are beautifully painted in a 'toy soldier' style . With these figures there are enough unpainted figures to form 2 new regiments to enhance my collection.


I would like to thank Graham and pass on my condolences to Lee Maxwell's family and hope I can do these figures justice in future games . I will be re-basing the figures and painting the rest up in a similar style to match them , the first unit will be the French Regiment Orleans and I will post reports on my progress .

  1. A sad story, with an uplifting twist in that the figures have passed into good hands. I can only hope that my own figures enhance someone else's army when the time comes.

  4. A touching gift, and a good one too. As you say Mr. Maxwell will be in your thoughts each time you use them, and in all of ours when we read the battle reports.

  5. We know we are starting to age when friends and loved ones pass away. My condolences to the Maxwell family! They truly have a good home.
