I wasn't thrilled with the Empire WW I purchased last year but the Lancer does look pretty good. Thanks for the photos.
The Lancer is in a different league; the sculpting is done by Tommy's War who produce some fantastic sculpts - they only really do WW1. I am not sure where the range will go with them but I would certainly consider buying a line of charging lancers
Here's an excerpt pasted from the Tommy's War newsletter I received yesterday. At 67.50GBP that Lancer looks like excellent value to me. They have some fantastic sculpts in their kit figure ranges and I'm looking forward to subsequent pre-painted releases from them. Did you find out what the next two figures will be?

Tommy's War announces the release of a Toy Soldier range
I’m delighted to bring you news that selected figures from the Tommy’s War range will now be made available as metal, pre-painted collectable figures.
By popular demand, I’ve partnered with Empire Military Miniatures to bring the current model range to life, beginning with one of the most popular figures – the Trooper of the 9th Lancers (model range; TW54C01).
The figure uses the same master and is factory painted to a high standard and is limited to just 100 copies, so will be sure to be popular.
We’ve already got the next two figures ready for production and look forward to bringing you more details soon.
Collectors Club Price £67.50
The London Toy Soldier Show, 2nd April 2016
If you’re in or around London and want a closer look at the new Toy Soldier range then they will be available at the Empire Military Miniatures stand at the London Toy Soldier Show in Islington on Saturday 2nd April.
I will be there, representing Tommy’s War. As such, I won’t have my regular stock, but if you would like to pick-up any orders then email me in advance and I’ll bring your order down to London.
On the stand we’ll be selling the Lancer, and previewing the next two releases, you’ll also be able to view the outstanding figures from the full Empire Miniatures range as well!
