The wonderful thing about our North Star 1672 range is that the figures will do for many different nations armies in the period 1665-1680. This is because it is a time just before uniforms, and the figures are all dressed in the fashions common amongst soldiers throughout Western Europe.
This of course includes Britain. The years covered by our range is called the Restoration Period in Britain as it was the time the monarchy, represented by Charles II, was restored after the English Civil War. It was also the genesis of the British Army. Britain, tired of soldiers and war, had disbanded much of it’s forces after the Civil War and Oliver Cromwell’s reign. With the return of Charles II to England in 1660, the units still under arms swore allegiance to the King and became the senior units of the British Army.Some of the infantry regiments: Coldstream GuardsGrenadier GuardsScots Guards1st Regiment (Royal Scots)2nd Regiment (The Queen’s)3rd Regiment (The Buffs)

Here at North Star, we all like to have a good cup of tea during the working day, and we thought we’d share what we do with our tea bags with all our customers.If you are a coffee drinker, or some other kind of deviant, you may not know what to do with your teabag. So here is the perfect way to make a North Star cup of Tea.1.We say ‘cup’, but actually mean a Mug. Cups are for sissys, and saucers just invoke the ancestral spirit of Ned Ludd in us. So get a good mug, take the teabag out of it’s sachet, unravel the string and drop the bag into the mug. Make sure the bag’s string is outside the mug.
