Bit of a new departure. Under-rated classics, I reckon.

Very well done Old School.
Those figures predate even me! grin
I was heavily into Lamming 25mm Ancients back in the 1970s, and those weren't even in the catalog.

Happy(?) memories – my first metal Napoleonics were Lamming from The Northern Garrison in Knaresborough (Look it up on Google Maps!)

I think you have a Wayback Machine in your possession. Those are some lovely paint jobs!

Dare I say this?

Offer a totally ignorant critique?

Are these too good? Seriously. I have this idea that Hinton Hunt Figures were glossy finished, relatively simply painted, parade rig figures that created nostalgia, but had largely had their day. Old School Stuff two respondents said. What was the German range you had to cast yourself and is still going?

What we see here is lacework (for just one example, I could have gone for the officers' rig) that is just superb.

British infantry, with white lace, overlying white cross belts, then overlying back pack belts, are murderous to do. These are brilliant.

I know I will regret this as way out of my comfort zone, but I have not often complained that a presentation has been far too good.

Oh Blimey. Just realised these are 20mm, having assumed nearer 35 or 54mm! Now I remember your earlier postings… Christopher Plummer said "This man does war honour"

Deadhead: this is NOT Hinton Hunt, it is Lamming. Although I do not remember the 20mm, I thought he (Bill Lamming) only made 25mm. In the picture only the British are Lamming, BTW. The Jäger in front (green coats) are probably Hinton Hunt or (old) Hinchliffe.
The still going "German range you have to cast yourself" ? Perhaps you mean Prince August ? They are Irish (;-)).

Prince August….that's it! Irish!!!!!! Bejabbers….

many thanks for the info. this posting has given me a whole new insight into what can be done with "nostalgia" figures

Thank you for your kind comments, chaps.

The figures (left to right are):
Foreground: Hinton Hunt Jaeger
Front row: Lamming and Der Kriegspielers
Back row: Der Kriegspielers and Hinton Hunt conversions

While we're talking about this scale and period, does anyone remember Les Higgins/Phoenix from Earls Barton in Northamptonshire? Some of the infantry were in strange poses but the cavalry were superb and the British Horse Artillery set was/is among the finest sculpts ever made. Would love to see a pic if anyone still has them!

Lord Hill, it's only taken 4 years but here are some pictures.


Here are the RHA figures. I agree with you that they are excellent.


Plenty more on that site.

Wellington Man05 Jan 2023 5:07 p.m. PST

I'm actually planning to paint a few Higgins's Lord Hill and Trockledockie!

All the best
