Looks like a great set. But I was wondering if the guns aren't a bit thin? They look so fragile.

Thanks for sharing Fred! :thumbup:

They're thin but not Peter, unless of course you want to test with a 10lb mallet

As far as I remember from pictures Peter is in quite good shape, but thin? Eh, no.

Out of trolling-mode: Great to see them! The Nappie-range have grown consideraly since I started buying! :-D

Those are good looking figures, I think I'd want to alter the pose of the guy on the right in the top row though.

Nice selection of poses for the rest.

Agreed Graeme, it's a very odd pose. I think they're candidates for the spares/convert box. :eh:

They came together with these figures:

Esci Warsaw pact troops:

One always has the option of putting up more shelving to house more and more boxes.
So you did well FredG. BB

Congratulations on the very low price for the French dragoons.

I eventually got round to buying some of these, when there were only 2 boxes left in the shop, they cost $10 each here. :shock: If I get another box and the command set that's $40 dollars for a standard 12 man cavalry set. :shock:

I suppose they are the only plastic 1/72 French dragoons in the Bardin uniform but I don't think I'll be getting more than one regiment.

The pieces do snap together very well without glue and they are nice looking figures, a good bit of casting.
