Traditional Toy Soldiers
1/32 (approx. 57mm.) metal glossy figures made & painted by hand in Argentina. Founded in 1985, Beau Geste is owned by Ana Donzino. Specializing in Indian Delhi Durbar & military band figures, Beau Geste produces some of the most charming toy soldiers available today. Their glossy figure sets include World War I infantry soldiers, mounted cavalry troopers, towering elephants from the Durbar, exotic camel cavalry, unique military music groups like the Harlem Hellfighters, and even civilian spectators and photographers to line your parade route!
The traditional toy soldier is cast from all metal, and is slightly smaller in size than the modern era miniature. They are also finished with a glossy, shiny paint that evokes a simpler, more innocent time. Though make no mistake, the level of detail in the sculpting and artistic hand painting are on par with any modern era figure! The intricate howdahs and decoration on the Durbar elephants; as well as the colorful and historically accurate uniforms of all the various figures has to be seen to be believed.
In addition to their flagship Delhi Durbar toy soldier range, Beau Geste figures also cover the Napoleonic Wars, the Napoleonic Colonial Period, the French Foreign Legion, and the Great War. Groups of marching soldiers, bicycling band members, and troopers mounted on everything from ponies to camels are all part of Beau Geste's diverse toy soldier ranges.
