My 1st Young Guard

I bought a load of Old Glory figures in the bring and buy sale at Falkirk Wargame Show (excellent show) a couple of years ago and this is the 1st battalion I finished.

I hadn't seen many Old Glory figures before and had heard mixed reports about them in the past but these guys I really liked.

There were loads of different poses in the pack and the detail looks really good to me and I found them very easy to paint.
I was lucky enough to pick them up in the old larger bags of 100 infantry and 32 cavalry and I am kicking myself that I didn't buy more as the guy selling them had stacks as he was moving from 15mm onto 28mm Napoleonic. I believe the Old Glory figures were sculpted by different people and I guess that is why you get mixed opinions from other wargamers? Price wise these guys were perfect at £10 for 100 figures! Bargain!!
