SPECIAL THANKS. I would like to thank Paul Watson for his sponsorship of several lead figure collections on this blog. Having decided to clear his spare/surplus figures, he generously forwarded them on with no other requirement than they deserved to be restored.

AND ANOTHER BOX OF LEAD ARRIVES

Just working on the previous box of figures when this second batch arrived. Its very mixed, but some interesting items to work with.  Total cost £12.45.

    1. Yes, Tony, i can see some useful figures for completing units, and also some novelty figures. I want a few 12 figures strong battalions on both sides, and some light formations typically 6-8 figures, but my house rules do allow a firing unit that only musters 3 figures if I end up with a few oddments.

    1. MJT, they typically sell for about £3 each plus postage so its always better to get them in a job lot. Most of them need replacement arms but any casting seems to look ok.

  3. Good haul. I agree re. Job lots and price if you are prepared to do the repairs and sort the scrap.

    A useful country Maid turned nurse, camp follower or vivandiere?

    1. Yes indeed Mark, have just paint stripped this second box, and drilled new rifles to those in the first box that needed it. Its a hassle I could do without, to be honest. Made worse as many will be drafted, much prefer doing the 'special' and individual extras, more interesting. I have a few farming civilians and animals now, and they add a lot to the visual appeal/gaming table even if their military contribution is slight. I think I might base them together as a couple.
