Below is a list of Suburban Militarism’s painted 54mm scale metal British Yeomanry figures. I have separated them into the following sections:

  • Marrion’s Men (figures based on illustrations by R.J. Marrion)
  • Campbell’s Cavalrymen (figures based on illustrations by E.A. Campbell)
  • René North’s Napoleonic Yeomen (figures connected with illustrations in a 1961 card series by René North)
  • Other Figures (yeomanry figures by various manufacturers).

‘Marrion’s Men’ Series:

figures based on illustrations by R.J. Marrion


1.

3rd County of London (Sharpshooters), Trumpeter, Drill Order, 1902-1907.

Figure by Dorset (Metal Model) Soldiers Ltd from their “Armies of the World” series. The figure was lost for decades until recovered and finally painted. It is modelled on an illustration by Robert J. Marrion, more on which can be found on this post.


2.

Sussex Imperial Yeomanry, Sergeant, Service Dress, 1905.

Figure by Dorset (Metal Model) Soldiers Ltd from their “Armies of the World” series. The figure is modelled on an illustration by Robert J. Marrion found on the first book in the series “Uniforms of the British Yeomanry Force 1794-1914”; more on which can be found on this post.


3.

3rd County of London (Sharpshooters), Officer, Camp Church Parade Order, 1905.

Figure by Dorset (Metal Model) Soldiers Ltd from their “Armies of the World” series. The figure is modelled on an illustration by Robert J. Marrion found on the fifth book in the series “Uniforms of the British Yeomanry Force 1794-1914”; more on which can be found on this post. The figures came in a pair and so two were produced.


4.

Westmorland and Cumberland Yeomanry, Officer, Parade Dress, 1905-1914.

I now know that this figure is by Mitrecap Miniatures as part of their ‘Turn of the Century’ range of figures. The pose is clearly based on a front cover illustration by Robert J. Marrion which can be found in “Uniforms of the British Yeomanry Force 1794-1914: The Westmorland and Cumberland Yeomanry”; the 4th book in that series. The sword may be a replacement.


5.

Yorkshire Hussars, Officer, Undress, 1852.

I believe this figure was another by Dorset (Metal Model) Soldiers Ltd. Modelled on an illustration by the late Robert J. Marrion found on the 3rd book in the series “Uniforms of the British Yeomanry Force 1794-1914: The Yorkshire Hussars”.


6.

Duke of Lancaster’s Own Yeomanry, Officer, Field Dress, 1909.

This figure was sculpted by Alan Caton for Tradition of London’s “Squadron Range”. This captain, dated 1909, is modelled on an illustration by Robert J. Marrion found on the 6th book in the series “Uniforms of the British Yeomanry Force 1794-1914: The Duke of Lancaster’s Own Yeomanry” By Barlow and Smith, published 1983.


7.

The Sussex Yeomanry, Officer, Full Dress, 1909.

A Mitrecap Miniatures figure listed as MV63 ‘Captain, Sussex Yeomanry, 1908’. The figure painting guide references an illustration by Robert J. Marrion found on the first book in the series “Uniforms of the British Yeomanry Force 1794-1914”.


‘Campbell’s Cavalrymen’ Series:

figures based on illustrations by E.A. Campbell

1.

The Surrey Yeomanry, Lieutenant, 1905.

Another Mitrecap Miniatures figure, catalogue number MV59. The figure references a painting by Edward A. Campbell and the pose is based upon that figure. The slouch hat was a separate piece which required affixing to the left arm.

2.

East Riding of Yorkshire Yeomanry, Captain, 1908.

Another from Mitrecap Miniatures range of yeomanry listed with a catalogue number of MV46. Painting advice references a painting by Edward A. Campbell and an article in the April 1983 edition of Military Modelling magazine.

3.

Worcestershire Yeomanry, Sergeant, 1898.

From Mitrecap Miniatures ‘Turn of the Century’ range of yeomanry and listed with a catalogue number of MV42. Painting advice references a painting by Edward A. Campbell in “50 Years of Yeomanry Uniforms” by R.G. Harris.

4.

Lincolnshire Yeomanry, Officer, 1911.

Figure by Chota Sahib with a catalogue number of Y8. Painting advice again references an Edward A. Campbell plate in “50 Years of Yeomanry Uniforms” by R.G. Harris. Other sources included a postcard illustration by Bryan Fosten and some information in “The Yeomanry Force at the 1911 Coronation” by Harris and Smith.
