Pegaso has given us the info on their latest sculpt in thirty two parts of white metal. This is a Celtic cavalryman and his trusty steed in 1/24th scale. Sculpted by Andrea Julia this depicts no doubt a man of wealth in the 12th and 13th centuries.
Why we say he would be a wealthy man is that for one he owns his own horse and armour, he is well fitted out with full chest armour – decorated with studs that match his helmet. His long spear with the largest sharp point is one of the most dangerous looking we have seen...
Hi short horse is covered with a bearskin that acts as a soft seat for the cavalryman, along with some protective mesh on the horse’s rump. Some horse skulls on the girdle and small round buckle type shields further point out the wealth of this cavalryman.
This new figure (and horse) is now available through the Pegaso Website and their distributors worldwide

Sculpted by Viktor Konnov and cast in fifteen white metal parts, this 1/20th scale figure is of a French general of the Napoleonic Wars, known as "the worst subject of the Grande Armée." - François Louis Fournier-Sarlovèze
After a so-so career in the army highlighted by his short sting in the “Army of Sambre-et-Meuse” -  the most famous army of the French Revolution. He truly became famous through the efforts of simply passing on a message…

In The Encyclopedia of the Sword, Nick Evangelista wrote:
As a young officer in Napoleon's Army, Dupont was ordered to deliver a disagreeable message to a fellow officer, Fournier, a rabid duellist. Fournier, taking out his subsequent rage on the messenger, challenged Dupont to a duel. This sparked a succession of encounters, waged with sword and pistol, that spanned decades. The contest was eventually resolved when Dupont was able to overcome Fournier in a pistol duel, forcing him to promise never to bother him again.
This couple fought over 30 duels with each other and on reading this I thought it reminds me of a movie that I once saw – and lo yes this François Louis Fournier-Sarlovèze was indeed the man that inspired one of the main characters in the Ridley Scott movie “The Duelists.”
His uniform and helmet do indeed fit such a notable soldier and the box art painted figure by Danilo Cartacci really beings out all of his regalia. His plumage on his helmet and jacket that sits over his shoulder on his back is a standout on this figure.
He is now available now  through Pegaso’s  distributors worldwide..
