Okay I know the title may seem strange but bear with me I don't think I'm going mad just yet. Although ….

Back in the day when I first started collecting Old Glory 15's I seem to remember an advert showing their range of Bavarian infantry all painted up and looking splendid. One figure caught my eye in particular and it was an infantryman holding his musket over one shoulder and holding his raupenhelm in the other and which appeared to be full of potatoes.
Having purchased several bags of Bavarian infantry including some of the old 100 figure bags the elusive potato fiend has never appeared.
My question is this. Is this figure out there somewhere and in production and I've just been unlucky or did this particular soldier turn his potatoes into moonshine and therefore is too comatose to bother to get out of the mould.
Any sightings
Regards and Merry Christmas

Foundry do a figure just like that. Could your mind be transposing memories?

I've seen the Foundry figures and they are very nice but these were definitely 15mm. I will have to see if I still have the advert buried away somewhere.
