King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden

King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden
Gustav II Adolf (1594-1632) more widely known as Gustavus Adolphus was King of Sweden from 1611-1632 and is credited in making Sweden a great ‘European Power’. He led the country to military supremacy during the Thirty Years War helping to determine the political as well as religious balance of power on the continent at that time. He was also regarded as a great military innovator especially in the use of ‘combined arms’... the fighting mix of cavalry, infantry and artillery and their practical deployment on the battlefield. Not only a great tactician he was a brave and fearless soldier often leading his troops ‘from the front’ in many a battle and skirmish. He was killed at the Battle of Lützen in 1632 leading a cavalry charge. Today, Gustavus Adolphus is memorialized in statues in several major Swedish cities... Our K&C standing figure is closely modelled on an actual statue in Gothenberg, Sweden.

The Witchfinder General

The Witchfinder General
Mathew Hopkins was a self-appointed witch-hunter whose career flourished during the major upheavals caused by the English Civil War. Although never officially sanctioned by Parliament, he prowled far and wide across East Anglia conducting investigations, trials and executions from 1644-1647. More than 300 unfortunate people, mostly women, fell victim to his deadly inquisitions with more being hanged and burned than in all of the previous 100 years! Our figure shows him in Parliamentary garb and wearing a black cloak and hat and carrying both a volume of Parish records ... and a sword. He was memorably played by legendary horror film villain, Vincent Price in “Witchfinder General”, a 1968 British horror movie.

Oliver Cromwell

Oliver Cromwell
Oliver Cromwell (1599-1658) was the dominant personality of the English Civil War. Originally from a modest country background he rose rapidly through the Parliamentary ranks from a humble troop commander to a regimental colonel and then a Lieutenant General of Horse all within the space of two years. Although lacking any formal military education he knew instinctively how to lead and train men...and get the best from them. Eventually he would be given the title “Lord Protector”. Our figure shows him in typical military dress of the early part of the war as a Colonel of Horse. The figure is based on the statue of Cromwell to be found outside Parliament in London...Sword in one hand...bible in the other! -
