These elderly chaps were part of the stuff from JR's attic (see many previous posts!). They are old metal 25s - all single piece castings - of unknown make - possibly Hinton Hunt. Can anyone help identify them?I remember first discovering these figures in the late 1970s at the old Dundee club. At the time they were in a plastic 4-litre ice cream tub full of 25mm Napoleonics. We youngsters of the club (I did say it was a while ago!) used them in some games alongside our Airfix plastics. I wonder what became of the other figures.
|Even my limited knowledge of the period indicated that this is a Polish Lancer.|
|The remaining cavalry look like French Hussars (or infantry officers?)|
|The joker in the deck is this rather lovely 30mm 'Willie' SYW figure. Happily his paintwork is still in pretty good shape.|
