The sorting out has so far been confined to putting stuff in 'themed' boxes. The sheer quantity of figures came as something of a surprise. This post deals with the pre-gunpowder 25mm toys. The main manufacturers represented (as far as I can tell) are Minifigs, Hinchliffe and Garrison - from the days when 25mm figures were actually 25mm tall!
Quite a mixture in here - mostly Romans, and about half a dozen chariots.
Some painted stuff too - including pikemen, light cavalry and Sassanid levy infantry.
Another real mixture of figures - including some Dark Age axe swinging types.
Mostly Assyrians and Greeks in here.
Lots of pikemen and Thracians. The small box contains Napoleonic figures - I recognise the cavalry and remember using them in games in the late '70s.
