Bob Plumb's toys - part 2

 Having completed the initial sort out and dividing up of the toys between their three new owners I managed to get some refurb work done.  So far I have removed various figures from their old bases, carried out some repair work and glued them to new mdf bases - using up must of my remaining stock of new bases in the process.
 A coat of Ronseal Satin finish Medium Oak was then applied.  When this was dry.....
 ....the bases were flocked.  Visible in this photo are various Greeks, Byzantines, Thracians, Persians, Romans and of course.....
....elephants!
How many figures did I end up with?  Well let's just say that more mdf bases are on order....

You know I think everyone has had some of those and a few of us still do! Nice looking selection!

Thanks - I thought (rightly it would appear) that 'work in progess' photos would score just as many eye candy points as the completed units!

Bet that Norman's feeling a bit out of place!

You can't see it in the photo - but he does look a bit worried.

Nice collection- it has Thracians in so it must be.

Cheers,

Have you a particular weakness for Thracians?

Pete. said...

For some inexplicable reason yes.

They are my favourite Ancient civilization.

Cheers,

Pete.
