A range of Napoleonic wargame figures designed to be compatible with Hinton Hunt figures - (22mm from bottom of foot to eye level)
Commissioned by Ron Marshall for personal use and as a labour of love although made available to others at near cost price to help defray costs of the limited runs.
Designed and sculptured by Andy Stadden (son of the renowned Charles Stadden)

Metal Content of the Figures

This was the response from my caster when I asked him what metal we were using for the figures:-

"The metal we use is 92% tin 6% lead, the other 2% is made up of trace elements such as copper and/or zinc

The metal cannot be classed as Pewter because EEC regulations dictate that Pewter must be lead free, however the definition of Pewter in the English dictionary is as follows:-

Pewter is a tin-based metal alloyed with varying amounts of other metals such as lead, antimony, bismuth, copper or zinc to make it stronger and harder. The metal generally has a dull grey finish. The tin content of most pewter exceeds 90%, although there are exceptions. The metal possesses a low enough melting point to make it easy for casting".

So if I say the figures are made from Pewter then I guess I am sorta covered!

The benifit of the small percentage of Lead added is that the finished product is not quite as brittle and will stand a certain amount of bending.
