Today I visited Graham in Otley who kindly returned some figures I gave him a dozen years ago. Inside the box were some of oldest figures dating from early 70s. The paint job and basing is interesting to say the least.
There were minifig 25mm figures but also 56 original Hinton Hunt figures I bought from their shop in Camden Passage in Islington.
Old Guard Artillery with cannon from unknown manufacturer.
Old Guard Grenadiers. I had originally organised my units as 20 figures and 2 officers so was clearly influenced by Don Featherstone organisations from War Games. The rest of this unit and the Austro-Hungarians below I sold a few years ago.
Hungarian Grenadiers although some have been painted as Austrians.
A Hungarian Infantry unit including a mounted officer.
And finally a unit of French minifigs 20mm painted as Austrians. I bought these from BMW Models in Haydons Rd in Wimbledon. Just down the road from Plough Lane the original home of my football Wimbledon.
Well having looked at these figures I am sure I could sell the HH ones however I think I am going to strip and repaint them.
I wonder if any of the modern 20mm ranges will fit in with them. I know John Cunningham does a few recast HH figures amd Douglas figures but what I need is Cavalry. I do have minifig 25mm Cavalry so perhaps, just as I did as a youngster, I could use both 20mm and early minifig 25mm figures together.
