New at Prince August the curiously sized 60mm and flat Queen’s Guards mould
They look quite charming. I like these poses – marching, firing, advancing, bayonet drill – but not sure yet if I will order any. Are they going to produce any more 60mm flat figures?
Other old plastic Crescent 60mm semi flat figures or older large metal flats up to 60mm could be drafted in as opposition.
Like I need a new size of soldiers to collect. Resisting shiny. Resisting shiny.

A patrol of eight wearing the blue scarves of Owl Patrol and a spare scout. I’m sure I intended the spare to be transformed into a Girl Scout. Too late …
In good weather a week or two ago I finished casting a few more 60mm semi round / semi flat home cast Scout figures for Alan Gruber, Tradgardmastre of the Duchy of Tradgardland blog.
Like me, he also is working on some Scout game rules for Wide Games.
Once Alan’s two patrols were cast and complete, I knocked out a spare patrol for future use of these strange crude blocky 60mm home cast figures. It’s taken a while to get them painted in my usual gloss toy soldier style. They now need varnishing for garden or tabletop use.
Half a patrol of Alan’s Scouts out in the garden – red was the colour of Bull patrol.
The original metal moulds 60mm figures
My first painted Scout 60mm figure, a red scarved patrol bugler.
