Man of TIN Advent Calendar Day 4 – Check these out!

Some more broken lead hollow cast figures that need repair. Despite miss8ng feet, spears and bases, two of  these  still have  great original checked shirt or check pattern painting as fresh as the day they were painted back in the 1950s and early 1960s.

New bases, new feet and a new spear created (in place of a fragile knobkerry or club). Ready for battle on the gaming table again!
