1 review of Tradition Of London in English
This is a collectors shop selling hand painted historic military miniatures and some military literature.
Generally all periods of history are covered, but Napoleonic wars appear to be their specialty. They’ve got figures of the most prominent commanders of the time, including all marshals of France, as well as plenty of rank and file soldiers.
They also designed a number of original sets such as portraying the French retreat from Russia with soldiers wearing a variety of looted apparel instead of the official uniforms and Napoleon and Murat dressed in old fashioned Russian boyar dress.
All figures are painted very accurately and their uniform designs are correct up to the specific details of each individual regiment. However, the overall quality of some models could be better, especially in respect of facial expressions and shading.
The 1/32 scale figures painted in the UK cost about £40 each, which looks like fairly good value. The few imported Russian painted ones they have cost much more, but indeed their artistic standards are better.
