Gonville Bromhead was awarded the Victoria Cross for his part in the gallant defence of the Rorke’s Drift mission station during the Zulu wars. This action was recalled in the film ‘Zulu’ in which Bromhead was played by Michael Caine. Bromhead was educated at the Thomas Magnus Grammar School in Newark, Nottinghamshire where one of the School Houses – ‘Bromhead’ was named after him until their abolition early this century.
It is for this reason that he is included in the Trent Miniatures Adventure range. This mini range brings together a variety of historical figures that have been associated with the town of Newark in Nottinghamshire, England. The models have been designed by Master Sculptor, Mark Copplestone. There are ten Characters in the series for you to collect.Two models are included in the pack, the clean shaven version being Michael Caine!
Trent Miniatures is a well established Wargames Figure Company producing high quality 28mm miniatures. They produce a number of ranges including soldiers of the French Revolutionary Wars, Historical Characters and a small but superb Science Fiction range.
I have to say, i love them! there was only a minimal amount of clean up needed for them and they are well detailed and full of character, and of course can work for any generic officer types you may want.
I picked mine up from Arcane Scenery and Models
And i must highly recommend them, as they offer excellent prices, speed and service, and a great range of models.
