The Earl Of Cardigan


Here we have the commander of the Light Brigade in the Crimea , Major General James Brudenall , the Earl of Cardigan . Its a Strelets personality figure from their 'Into the Valley of Death' box set. 


On the left - the real Earl , in the centre the Strelets figure , right Trevor Howard as the Earl in the 1968 film . Strelets can do some odd figures but their personality one are very good in capturing their subject in miniature . 


We will draw a sad veil over the films idea of a liaison between Mrs Duberly and Cardigan …..
Perhaps the two figures have to remain 6" away from each other on the tabletop  ?

  2. A great looking miniature Tony...

    It is probably a good idea to keep Cardigan and Duberly apart..... the last thing you would want is an uncontrolled advance by the cavalry...

    All the best. Aly

  3. He looks suitably haughty. And the less said about this particular (ahistoric?) liaison, the better.
