    What makes Yeomanry stick out versus other manufacturers in my opinion is his attention to detail.
    When collecting sets that portrait the second Boer War one tends to get into a fix as far as sources of accurate uniforms and weapons and Yeomanry was/is a source of accurate sets. I have spoken to Mike at Little Legion and pointed out that his sets have the wrong rifle ( Martin Henry´s - from the Zulu War era ) when in the 1900´s the British Army had already swoped those for the magazine fed Lee Metfords, but he has no intention to change his choice of armament...so that creates the historical inconsistency that I am upset with....
    Same with Trophy ( but not much you can do here given they are no longer trading ).
    Cheers

    The most important thing to me about this set Luiz is the fact it was a gift from a good buddy of mine

    Cheers
