Not Essex!

Essex horses don`t have good bases and would be laying down, So I go for Mirliton :lol:

Re: Figure Identification Help Needed

Not certain but they do have a kind of Minifigs stance about them from about 20 years ago.

Nice job mate.

Crisp clean and well worked.

"Envious" is the word that comes to mind.

I also have to use 50mm deep bases for 28mm Horse. Modern figures just dont fit on 40mm.

I don`t know the answer because I am actually too old and too stupid to make any sense of the rules and still use RFCM and WRG 6th.

Perhaps philqw78 would come down to me in Wales or France to explain them to me.

Better bring his own booze and women though :lol:

Oh dear!

I see a clean and repaint coming. I agree with Strategos69 that the horses are probably rescueable. Not really worth the price of the unpainted figures considering the work needed.

I like the Xia Xia and the Koreans too although haven't seen any figures for these. Do you just use simmilar period Chinese figures? Hi MatthewP. Alain Toulier does some nice Koryo Koreans. It`s in French but easy to follow the website. Orders arrive fairly quickly too. Link :- http://www.atoufigs....

100 Years War

I am going to switch scales and sell my 28mm HYW and replace it all with 15mm. I have ordered the replacement 15mm so it is now a done job. Here`s a piccie of them if anyone wants to buy the lot. (loadasamoney) They will probably go on E-Bay in unit sized lots. http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3173/284...

Oddly enough some of my painted Yi Korean figures are on ERM site. Tony thought they were OK. No accounting for taste I suppose :o http://shop.eastridingminiatures.co.uk/yi-dynasty-koreans-26-c.asp I have not used them with FOG yet so cannot speak for their prowess but TBH I would rather use troops ...
