Lamming SYW Range - further discoveries

I have recently acquired some largish reinforcements of Lamming SYW foot figures. Nothing new here but there were a snall number of cavalry figures. There are dragoons with two horse varieties - these look similar to those already posted earleir, I have only compared the photos so far rather than the figures themselves; a cuirassier who seems different to the Prussian figure I have seen before; and a hussar variant with busby rather than Mirliton.

I am mainly concentrating on Medievals at the moment but once I start painting up the SYW foot I will have a go at constructing some kind of listing of all the Lamming SYW figures of which I am aware.

Clive - how do these line up for size with S-Range?

Tony - broadly similar, the Lamming horses might be ever so slightly bigger

Not convinced about your hussar. That horse is a Garrison 20mm range figure!

Could these be someone's "homecast" efforts?

Dave it is a one piece casting and the top of the base is definitely Lamming style. The figure appears in one of the old books - possibly Charles Grant’s Napoleonic Wargaming - and it is much better quality than a home casting. There were a couple of these figures in the Bill Lamming display figures I bought so I am around 90% sure of the attribution. Rob Young may be along with the definitive Garrison answer
