On the Repair Desk

A varied selection of broken figures. 

Here are some more bashed and broken 54mm lead hollowcast figures that are on the repair bench.

A real mix from various manufacturers – some tribal warriors, Britain’s native Indian warriors on guard, a Robin Hood archer, a Hilco spaceman, an Eskimo and Assyrians …

The Timpo Eskimo will make a fine WW1 pilot.

They are sharing the painting desk with some Peter Laing 7th Cavalry figure recruits from the Duchy of Tradgardland.

    1. 54mm or 1:32 scale is the standard old William Britain’s metal and big Airfix plastic toy soldier size. I shall post finished pics of these bashed metal figures when completed with new Fimo bases and repaired paintwork. This toy soldier size is good for individual figures in Skirmish games, as shown in the original or reprint of Donald Featherstone’s Skirmish Wargaming.
      Over the years the most popular scale has changed from 40 mm and 30mm to 15mm (like my Peter Laing figures) and 20mm. There are gaming figures right down to 5mm and 6mm. 28mm is a fairly recent new addition, small enough or big enough for many gaming purposes.
