OK guys, this is probably a permanent fix to a temporary problem, but I could use some advice.
The cataracts are getting worse, and the color vision is far enough gone that I'm having a hard time with dark coat colors in 28mm. Well, next week I'll bring the 54mm Napoleonics in out of the garage. That's why I bought them, after all.
But they're my fallback army, and I have nothing beyond them. Does anyone know where I might find proper horse & musket toy soldiers--not ancients, and not moderns in subdued colors--bigger than 54mm without going to 1/6 scale? Think Blasthoff Bridge, more or less--a mixed force of something under 100 a side.
Just a precaution in case the cataracts surgery doesn't go as well as it almost surely will. But my 6" army men were moderns, and they've been gone a long time.

Elastolin makes or used to make 70mm SYW Prussians, but as I recall, only foot. There are also models from Cherila is 60-65mm of the Jacobite Rebellion.

Marx 60mm ARW from ATS?

These three places sell lots of 60mm 54mm size figures from many eras, but also some larger figures. Toy Soldier HQ has a great listing of nearly everything ever sold in that size. I have purchased from all three and they are good venders to buy from.

A couple of years ago I bought a carload of very large ACW figures--probably 75mm or so. The poses, oddly enough, are the same as BMC. I don't know who came out with their figures first, but the poses are identical.

I need them like a hole in the head, but they are heavy--they're made of some sort of resin or porcelain instead of plastic, so postage would be prohibitive. If you live near Northern Virginia, or will be at Fall In, we can get together.
