These chaps represent the staff of the Forbodian Infantry Brigade and are HAT ACW Zouaves with head transplants.
That's not as clever as it sounds, as HAT thoughtfully supply a few spare heads with wide-brimmed hats. So a bit of slicing, trimming, drilling and glueing was all that was required.
The two coats of varnish have worked well, as I've already dropped two of these chaps onto a wooden floor while placing them on a 4 foot high shelf - with no ill effects.
