Peter Pig 15mm figures
Peter Pig is one of the world's leading 15mm manufacturers.  We make 5500 different figures and models.  These are distilled into   1800 (15mm) packs. Every range has an associated set of 15mm rules. Also there are related 15mm scenery ranges to accompany the figure ranges.  In these days of wandering measures of sizes into 18mm,12mm and other sizes close to 15mm, Peter Pig has remained true to the 15mm ideal.  These other sizes are often an attempt by a manufacturer to create a market  for just their peculiar size. It is also used by sculptors who cannot work well with the 15mm size restriction and so need extra size in order to create acceptable sculpts. Peter Pig will continue to do 15mm wargame figures.  We will also constantly return to each range in order to carry out updates and additions. Thus we have 15mm ranges with longevity and future potential.

Belgian cavalry

Robert M has been building some cavalry for his WW1 Belgians. A small article here about those Uhlans (lancers|).

With thanks to Robert


Massed Belgian cavalry.

The conversion consists of a new paint job on the PP uhlans.

Belgian cavalry


There were 5 Belgian Lancer regiments in 1914. They wore a czapka covered in a black oilskin but many swapped this for a bonnet de police as the campaign progressed because of the summer heat.

They wore dark blue double breasted jackets with a collar and piping in the regimental colours. 

Grey trousers with a white stripe and black knee-high boots.  The lance was bamboo and the pennant was in the three colours of the Belgian flag (black - yellow - red).


Their main claim to fame was at the Battle of Halen south east of Brussels on 12 August 1914.

The Belgian Cavalry Division, under Lt. Gen de Witte, consisted of  2 regiments of Lancers and 2 regiments of Guides plus a battalion of Carabinier-Cyclistes together with an infantry brigade.   

The German forces consisted of 2 Cavalry Brigades (2 Dragoons, 1 Kurassier and 1 Uhlan), a reinforced Jaeger battalion and a Guard HMG detachment.  Both side had artillery.


As the Germans had numerical superiority De Witte decided to dismount all of his cavalry and cyclistes


The Jaegers managed to drive the Belgians out of Halen but a number of cavalry charges were mown down by combined small arms fire.  In the evening the Germans withdrew and the Belgians claimed a victory.  It had little effect on the campaign but was a tremendous boost for Belgian morale.

The German cavalry charges were mown down by Belgian combined small arms fire.  The Belgian cavalry was all dismounted.


All figures - except dismounted Guides - are available from Peter Pig.  The Lancers are just a painting conversion from the German Uhlan figures both mounted and dismounted.
