I had quite a good time setting this up. It takes me back to my days when Marx playsets would be waiting. under the tree. on Christmas day.
I would spend the rest of the Christmas holiday setting up endless variations of battle scenes and always emerging as the Victor!!
Those were great days for me. It's why I still collect plastic soldier today.
Some of you may recognize the Britains trees. These will cost you a small fortune to purchase at today's prices.
The unpainted, tan plastic figures are from the Ron Barzso Indian Camp set.
Ron Barszo produced a number of plastic figures and playsets in limited numbers. Many were based on Early American history, mainly the F&I War.

The painted figures are from Larry Patterson, who does original work and casts figures in resin. I repainted them all with GW paints.

So, think back to those wonderful days, when toy soldiers were waiting for you on Christmas morn.
Enjoy the pix.

Forgot. The Stag is a Marx Robin Hood piece.

Yes, very evocative of childhood.

Nice.

After setting that up you should pull out the DVD of The Mountain Men with Charlton Heston and Brian Keith. The more I learn of the fur trade era, the more I appreciate that movie.

Yes, fond recollections. Fort Apache, Cape Canaveral, the Alamo, French foreign Legion, King Arthur's knights,

A couple of years ago I bought my wife a chatty Cathy, and she bought me a remake of the Cape Canaveral set. I love launching those rockets and spinning disc's.
