Not expecting much I dropped in thus morning. Apparently a local figure collector have recently passed away and his family had passed the collection to Oxfam. Most of the figures had been sold off. I was however able to buy 86 painted figures for just short of £ 62. They look to be original Hinton Hunts.
The figures are reasonably well painted but do have a bit of varnish yellowing particularly on the white. After cleaning up I will do a small amount of paint refurbishing, mostly on the white, and a fresh coat of Gloss Varnish.
First is a Duchy of Warsaw unit of 28 figures.
All the figures have had the underside of bases filed down but as you can see here there is evidence of the original Hinton Hunt markings still showing.
There were also 2 units if French. Firstly 18 Voltigeur types including 6 Officers. 8 of them are the classic firing figure.
And finally a unit of 16 French (12 infantry and 4 Officers). I am pleased to get these as I already have a few FN5 French Infantry and with these I can make up a full 24 figure unit.
The only thing missing from all these units are standard bearers so I will either have to convert some or get some of John Cunningham's recast range.
Not bad for a Saturday morning shopping.
