The Three Musketeers & d’Artagnan
Alexander Dumas’ classic swash-buckling, historical novel ‘The Three Musketeers’ has been a firm favourite of movie fans ever since it was first filmed by Douglas Fairbanks in 1921.
Since then, many more movies have told the story of the young swordsman d’Artagnan and his three friends, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis and their adventures during the reign of French King Louis ⅩⅢ and his principal minister, the cunning and powerful Cardinal Richelieu.
King & Country have also told the story of the ‘Three Musketeers’ in miniature. Back in 2015, we produced our very first set of three Musketeers together with their young aspirant, d’Artagnan… alongside their arch enemy, Cardinal Richlieu. Those particular figures have long been sold-out and no longer in production however collectors and some dealers have requested replacements… So, here they are…
These four new figures were directly inspired by the art of one of my favourite comic book illustrators, Arturo del Castillo. Arturo was just one of a group of superb Spanish and Italian illustrators who found their fortunes drawing for all kinds of British comic books and illustrated children’s magazines throughout the 1950’s into the ‘60s and even the 1970s. I well remember their work and collected examples of their excellent artwork even as a young art student in Glasgow in the 1960s. This new quartet of figures shows the three musketeers and their young friend from Gascony leveling their swords as they swear loyalty to each other... “One for All... & All for one!”
Due to be released in OCTOBER 2021.
