These 54mm / 1:32 policemen were bought via the Internet about five years ago in the absence of civilians for sandpit and floor games.
They have a crude but strange cartoon quality that I quite like but I know isn’t to everyone’s taste.
They come quite heavily armed and highly animated.
Made in China, they have no maker’s mark.
Already I have started to explore the gloss acrylic toy soldier style possibilities of these figures.
Could they be transformed into American Civil War Blues and Greys?
Could they be peaked cap officer figures in my pound store Close Little Wars?
Could they be revolutionary workers in flat caps?
Could they be Dan Dare inspired Space Force or Space Police, like the 1950s Dan Dare series of lead toy soldiers?
They offer lots of figure “paint conversion” possibilities, just like the recent Wilko police figures.
Happy Painting and Happy Gaming!
