The other night a friend of mine bought over a box of figures some of which we are trying to identify the manufacturer and troop type.
I think they are Connoisseur.
CR8 on the bottom of the base.
CR10 on the bottom of the base and BCC4 marked on bag.
H2 Horse.

Thanking the TMP collective in advance.

Connoisseur horses here:


Any similarity?

Saw these horses but on closer inspection the H2 horse I have has a girth strap and the right front leg is raised at 90 degrees.

Could they be Hinchliffe?

You will have to take into account that some of the longer standing companies will have re-mastered their ranges during their lifetime and kept the same or similar figure codes.

I have absolutely no idea how to link a photo to this page.
Will get some help and hopefully get it up tomorrow.

Post the picture somewhere, maybe a blog or a free photo sharing site.

Go to the picture and take its properties which will tell you its location (URL).

Copy and paste the URL into a TMP message.

Brilliant – yes they are Hinchcliff.

Thanks you all very much. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Hinchliffe also have a design cast on the bottom. It's an "H", with a triangle pointing downward from bottom bar.

Here is a way to post photos on TMP:


Here are the steps to paste a photo directly from your photo library:
1. Open
2. File: Choose file
I use option B. Photo Library
3. File Type: Image
4. Resize (drop down list) leave as default to see if you like size
5. Select green Upload Now option
6. Select option IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards. Copy and paste the code into your TMP post.
Once you've done this, you'll find it is easy and intuitive. If I can do it, you can as well. : > )

Thanks Garryowen. It wasn't that straghtforward, and I got several popups spoiling the flow, but it worked eventually.

Sorry - only verified members can post on the forums.
