Just as vibrant and urgent as it was when it debuted in 1975, Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon is perhaps the perfect historical epic movie to be re-introduced to a brand new audience.
In advance of the July 2016 re-release of the film in the UK, a new trailer has been crafted for the film, one that builds in a contemporary feel without sacrificing the film’s authenticity.
Only a cinema screen can do justice to the stunning visuals of Barry Lyndon. Inspired by painters such as Thomas Gainsborough and William Hogarth, the film has a beautiful, painterly look, enhanced by filming in natural or historically accurate light sources.
My particular interest, of course, is that the miniature army of my ‘imagi-nation’, the Barryat of Lyndonia, is made up of the various units that appear in the movie, including Gale’s Regiment of Foot, the Régiment de Royal-Cravates, and the ‘Kubrick’ Infanterie Regiment.

I remember your original posts about these figures Roly. Worth re-releasing too!
Nice work Arteis .
I wonder if any of the other posters – know that the word -Cravat came from the neck wear worn by the Croatian or :- Hravati soldiers in the employ
of Napoleon Bonaparte .
So it seems you might have some … Dallies … in your line up.
Absolutely lovely work on those Minden figures, beautifully presented and photographed. Thank you for alerting me to your blog on AMG Forum.
Lovely work and a great homage to – IMO – the most beautiful movie ever filmed. A pity I live in the US as I would surely see the cinematic re-release multiple times if I could. The Blu-Ray version may not quite be the same but it is close.
