It has been a long wait,waiting since 2011 to have these settle into place on the market,
where i could finally buy them. These will ride the rails on the railway layout.

Non combatant poses chin wagging and having a fag!

Bought for the natives carrying bundles of stuff throughout a fantasy story.
( My vast jungle of plants arrived by airmail Saturday.) :-D

An odd set this one as all advancing troops have their muskets over their right shoulder.
So basicaly all are the same pose ;-) BB

Great figure collection FredG,for painting up fine and dandy.


My new figures arrived yesterday in the nick of time. :thumbup:

Image

These native levies are looking rather good,that is until i slap paint upon them. :-D
Whatever,however the Epic Quest is on to find the jungle at the North Pole.


Below a plastic Set. Bravo HAT.
They are rather tiny sitting down.

Image

Yes FredG, the Gerries are sitting in tiny boxes on the shelf marked For Sale.
These rather young and green looking Germans are going on my armaments trains. Little do they realize, Fred & MayBell, are going to blow the tracks in the railway tunnels. Fred is wearing a Zorro outfit for fear of being recognised. MayBell is just being a MAYBELL!

Secret message opened earlier from Winney.It read, Action this day: time enough must be gained for Uncle Longbottom Beano to fix his Time Machine......That must not fall into the hands of Adolf, who is reported as being on one of the trains traveling in second class dressed as an Imperial Dalek, for fear of being recognized. ________________ :mrgreen:"Gee! ULTRA was good."

What is going to happen?
Will Fred be recognized?
Will Adolf?
Will the paint put upon those levies be horrendous ?

All I know is the race is on.but who will find the Jungle at the North Pole?
:sst: "especially when they are all heading towards the south pole. "
I think the next episodic part might well be on my Blog. :-D BB

It is a very useful piece of kit FredG. Nice purchase by the way.
I bought a few which are still in dry dock sleeping in their boxes.
It most certainly has several options open in my mind for :-D fun-time conversions.BB

Added to the stash as I'd exchanged eight of the horses with shabraques for sheepskins to mount the Revell figures. This gives me a further supply if I decide to expand the 1st Royal Horse Guards.
