I've spent the weekend unpacking my collection of 54mm toy soldier collection and clearing off bookshelves so that I can display the figures. Click on the link to my blog for more pictures and the back story.

Wonderfull stuff. The dismembered limbs are a little distressing, however.

Those Dervish look like the first editions of Trophy Miniatures. I used to have quite a collection of them but eventually sold them off on eBay for a nice profit. They are very collectable nowadays as they are out of production.I must say that I regret selling them now and wish I still had them to set up and display as you have done.

Yes, the Dervish are early Trophy figures and the Seaforth Highlanders are from the Under Two Flags range ( made by the same sculptor as Troohy).

I'm glad that I kept mine as they are darned hard to find these days.

Have you ever considered modifying the Mahdists so they're more historically accurate, DAF?

Have you considered that they are just toy soldiers? Have you considered that it is just a game? Have you considered keeping your negative comments to yourself?

Probably not.

Actually, the question was posed out of genuine curiosity. From the intensely defensive character of your response I'd surmise that they may be more than merely 'just toy soldiers' to you.

If I owned such a wonderful collection, I wouldn't touch them either. I think part of the charm of classic toy soldiers is their simplified and occasionally inaccurate casting or paint job. I'm happy to leave the "button counting" to the 28mm and 15mm collectors.
