£7.84 on Model Hobbies

£8.09 0n Model Hobbies. Much more expensive on E Bay.
These are the first 1/32 HAT figures I`ve bought.

All my figures arrived today,and as Jan stated,` They are cool.'

A few years ago I bought several 54 mm British guns with crew, so it is just a matter of adding other scale related items now to build up 2 or 3 tiny armies up.
:winky: They being the French,Prussains and British.

Image

I was able to purchase the entire stock of 7 metal 8 pounders available at £4.99 each saving myself a mint of money into the bargain. So that being the bright case money saved will go in the direction of buying a few boxes of French Infantry kits. :sst: " the plans afoot."___ :mrgreen: "Ya!."

A plastic 54mm gun and 5 crew £25.00______ :coffee: __________ A Resin 54mm gun and 5 crew £45.00

:mrgreen: "No way!"
:sst: " bb`s rather careful cautious with his money."

Gun Crews will be converted 54mm French figures, with casualties laying around cast up by me. The plastic kits come on sprues with bits and pieces,so it should be easier to construct some gun crews. After all the foot artillery uniforms were the same as that of the infantry.
I believe that will be great fun. _________See you guys later:-D BB

Yes Great collection in the sense of very large. :mrgreen: "He he he,a pitiful dusty state of red white and blue though."___ :coffee: " yes indeed."

Off Topic for just a while :eh: :eh: :eh: :eh: :eh: :eh: All the Mods shaking their heads in " No."

Within my Toy Museum
The Pride of my Collection the two tiny toys featured below,
and a small Napoleonic diorama `blucher1815red ', gave me some years ago.

One pitilist de-dusting time I tried to clean up poor `Fred ', using the heavy duty Vax machine,and whoosh! Up the pipe he went rattling along to utter destruction. MayBell upset to extreme like Queen Victoria her self,was not amused at the loss of her friend!"
:sst: " he was quickly replaced though, after all he was once an imperial dalek."

More Cavalry is on order. :shock: " Gulp!"

All in all I am a one hundred percent affordable plastic `junky',
an element of obsessive compulsive disorder! ;-)
:mrgreen: "BB`s a lost cause."_____ :-D " I delightfully am." BB

So in quick smart time another quest to buy affordable toy soldiers at a good price has certainly come to a finish. That is until HAT releases the large scale Prussian Landwehr. Too-da-loo :-D BB

Well my 8 Pounder Guns, arrived and oddly the gun carriage is cast in two separate parts which I find quite annoying. Apoxy Resin for Metal I hope will fix the parts together or I`ll have to solder the darn things. I have complained, however these are `Prince August' guns so I expect it will fall on deaf ears.
Looking on the bright side the casting are clean and neatly cast, and above all good value for what I paid for them.BB

I thought I'd take a look at a set of these just for something a little different. At least the paint won't dry on the larger brushes as quickly.
