Old Glory makes a fine range of 1812 Americans and they are rather inexpensive as lead goes. I would definately advise that you check them out. I have a goodly number myself and a number of fellows I've gamed with do as well. The guns are a little spindly in the axel, however, and their barrels are a little squashed (oval rather than round at the mouth) but the gunners are very fine.

Hi
I got a copy and highly rate it.
I was actually thinking of doing a campaign covering the period focusing on the 102nd Foot, (previously the 'NSW Corps' / Rum Corps).
I've obtained all my US and Canadian troops from BRIGADE GAMES except for the US Rifles and Dragoons and Kentucky Mounted Rifles (Militia) which I'll obtain from OLD GLORY and US Regulars which I make using some Victrix and Perry Plastic leftovers.
The Brits I already have covered.

Good plug on Brigade Games, Trailape! I also highly recommend their fabulous line of Napoleonic and 1812 figures. They have some great naval figures for the period; lots of landing party lads. They are more pricey than the Old Glory but are perfect for lead addicts like myself.
Also, love your avatar, Trailape! "Stand Steady!!!!!!" LOL

I really like the Brigade games figures (most of them are sculpted my Paul Hicks so you know they'll be good)
I haven't looked at Old Glory myself but I do like Knuckledusters figures, they are very characterful

@Trailape if you do put together a campaign covering the 102nd Foot, please post details I'd love to see what you come up with
catch me on twitter Wargamer_Mike
Or hear my whittering on about stuff on the Meeples and Miniatures podcast and on my Blog http://mikehobbs.co.uk

Yep,..
I've purchased a bunch of their Napoleonic sailors to go with the recently release PERRY RN sailors and Marines.
They will look cool on my OLD GLORY SHIPYARD 25mm ships
