More SEGOM



My thanks to Mike for these pictures of his SEGOM figures - Prussian Infantry and Russian Grenadiers. Mike thinks he bought them at Northern Militaire in the 1970s and remembers Austrian Infnatry in helmets too.

I'm saure Iremeber a review of the SEGOM "25mm" range in Mil-mod. there were cavalry- I seem to recall Hussars with muliple plumes you snipped off to get the right type. I think it was the "small" milmods it was in I still have those somewhere.

Andy, that would be great. Do you kow which year MilMod started? I am still trying to find a listing for the Lamming SYW range which were only around from about 1968-1970, and I wondered if there just might be an advert in a MilMod from around then. I have a John Cross Figure Reveiw article for Lamming from February 1971's Military Modelling which doesn't mention the SYW Range .

Mil Mod no 1 is January 1971 2
issue2 reviews Lamming but doea not mention the SYW- the implication is that the reviewd Napoleonics are new and better than the older ranges but then you have that one.
The Segom rnge is reviewd in the September 1972 issue. - the horses were apparently in chocolate brown white or tan plastic and appear to be stationary poses.

There were 25 foot and 11 mounted figures in the range. The horses came in halves, 3 different left and right which could be combined to make a total of 9 poses. There was also a standard Gribeauval carriage with either a 12 pounder or howitzer barrel.

Foot and cavalry standards were available to convert some of the figures into standard bearers.

And yes, Austrians in helmets were in the range. I can provide a complete list if anyone is interested.
