Updated July 2021 with Figure paint conversion pictures
A small colourful consignment of turncoats and mercenary troops, previously serving with the Duchy of Tradgardland, have been posted to new service here with various ImagiNations.
These familiar and classic Airfix OOHO figures from the 1970s will be perfect to bulk up the small numbers of the various colourful and random RainBow ImagiNations units featured on my Pound Store Plastic Warrior blog last week:
In red on the left, you can see a handful of Airfix AWI British Grenadiers and Washington’s Army figures.
July 2021 Update: the Tricornes have now become black and gold
July 2021 update: The Grenadiers have become reinforcements for the Kings Guard
In the centre, mostly French Napoleonic Artillery figures, gun and limber pieces and a medley of other figures.
July 2021 Update: the French Artillery have become blue and gold
I like the French Artillery firelock figures at the bottom centre with musket perched casually over the shoulder whilst marching or shuffling along.
On the right, French Napoleonic Imperial Guard.
There was also half a dozen Airfix horses and bases (not shown).
They are all such useful generic shako, bearskin and Tricorne figures for “Horse and Musket” era ImagiNations.
As you can imagine, I will probably not be painting or using them as they were intended. Some of the later shako figures may do well with the post Napoleonic Mid 19th century Bronte family ImagiNations of Gondal, Glasstown and Angria.
I will mount gun crews and skirmish infantry as individually based figures.
Thanks to Alan Gruber of the Duchy of Tradgardland for this kind gesture. The finished figures will feature on this blog in time.
