IR 8 Amstell

Fine Foundry figures, at one time the best and most complete manufacturer of SYW figures. These were sculpted by Copplestone and remain, in my opinion, the best. Sadly the later ranges from Foundry, the French and British, were not sculpted by Copplestone and are markedly inferior. Just by looking at the Foundry website you should be able to distinguish the sculptor. They have hived off the French and British to another website and retained the Prussians and Russians but, beware, not all the Prussians and Russians are the original sculpts.

I mix this range in with Crusader but I prefer painting the Copplestone faces which are hugely expressive.
