Royal Welch Fusilier (23rd Foot) Museum - Crimea

One of my favourite periods, the Crimean War. One day I'll actually finish my British forces and start the whole Russian division of Foundry figures! Now they're Warlord and Great War Miniatures to tempt me - I have a few of both. The infantry fit nicely with Foundry's, the cavalry figures are fine but Foundry's horses are smaller.

The last time I visited the museum was over 18 years ago and it's changed a lot. It's larger and more modern now and more informative. What I did miss was hinged rack display of enlarged photos which you could flick through - like poster retail displays. I'm sure they had photos from the Crimean war but I could be mistaken.

Captured Russian gun. I remember being able to walk around this in the old layout.

Luckily on 25 to 28mm figures the cross belt cover most of this detail so I don't have to paint it!

This was an interesting story and picture. I could use Indian Mutiny figures to represent troops like this in the trenches.
