New Napoleonics from Foundry?
Posted by Martin on April 13, 2007
When the Perrys stopped sculpting for Foundry I pretty much assumed that would put an end to further development of that company’s Napoleonic ranges. And so it has. At least, until now it seems…
Kev Dallimore posted a picture of some newly painted Foundry Portuguese on Steve Dean’s forum yesterday and, like several other members of that group, I mentally raised an eyebrow and I thought to myself that:
a). I don’t recall there ever being any Foundry Portuguese Napoleonics.
b). Nah, these are probably conversions Kev has done from Foundry British or Prussian reserves.
But no, Kev has spilt the beans. The two figures in question are new ones sculpted for Foundry by one Michael Percy (no, definitely not Perry). So is this the start of a new Foundry range? Or will it be a fitful false dawn like we’ve seen with out incomplete Foundry ranges over the years?
