Engineers to the Front!

Among John's finds at Tankfest was this box of 54mm engineers, which he wisely bought with me in mind. They are nicely painted metal castings (marked 'Steadfast' on the bases) and the five figures are 'armed' with a variety of tools.  There is also a mule cart.  They need a wee bit of tidying up and will be rebased.  Not bad for £10!
I'll post more pics when work has been completed.

Great looking figures Tim.Are they a tribute band to your other Village People engineers(?) perchance?

Cool figures, highly unusual, pity we can't get the likes of these in 1/72

I know you're just jealous Alan!

You'll have to convert some ground crew figures!

They are delightful. I'm pleased, friends are jealous. Job done!

I think it must be quite heavy. Either that or he's struggling to grasp the high level of technology the wheelbarrow represents...

Thanks - I think they'll fit in nicely!

FYI, Steadfast toy soldiers are still listed on Newbury Toys website, just a little more than your £10 though.
