Hi George.

I'm not certain but I think you'll find 1/32 (54mm) will be as close as you'll get in figures from that period.

I know Airfix did a number of 54mm kits at reasonable cost which can still be got through ebay or similar. They can be made to look the part too and at a lot less cost than the resin or white metal alternatives.

Hi George,

As Richard and Nick have said, you'll find these are 54mm (1/32) as the common figure scale, with plastic, resin or metal figures that are available. As Nick suggested, Historex Agents would be the best place to start. The use of 1/35 came for military vehicle models long after the 54mm scale had been already established for figure modellers.

Still I remember way back in the 70s some fine work that was done on Historex Napoleonics by one artist who modelled, in oils, Napoleon crossing the Alps as in the Jaques-Louis David painting.

Of course the build was not OOB by any means, but powerful!

Hi George

You might want to have a look at the Victrix range of 54mm Napoleonics, British Peninsular Infantry Flank Companies and French Grenadiers and Voltigeurs. They're hard plastic multipose figures, around £22 for a box of 16 figures.
