Fellow blogger Bob Kett recently sent me a parcel of classic 20mm figures as part of a figure swap.
Included in the parcel were some Alberken, Les Higgins, Garrison as well as some other interesting figures.
Firstly some Rose figures which included a few painted examples. The figures are all of normal human proportions.
There were two bags of unpainted British Infantry and French Grenadiers. I had 4 of the Grenadier figures in my armies in the 70s which I bought from a private house in Charlton whilst on London Red Rover ticket.
The British is a good match height wise with Hinton Hunt although slightly slimmer.
I am thinking of painting these as a Prussian Reserve unit even though they have the belgic rather than stovepipe shako. I have been influenced by Matt's rather nice unit here
I have added a couple of Hinton Hunt British and Prussian command to bring the unit up to strength for Marshal and Muskets.
Secondly there were 12 Scruby British Light Dragoons. I don't know if these are original figures or more recent castings.
These figures are of human proportions. Interesting the horse has no reigns which will need adding. There is also very little definition of the saddle cloth which will need adding or painting on
Size wise they are slightly smaller than a Hinton Hunt Prussian Dragoon.
