After having the four figures I needed to bring the Loyalist York Dragoons up to strength, I finally got the painted this month. These are vintage 25mm Custom Cast one-piece cavalry figures.


Please visit my blog link to see some more pictures and a brief description of the unit.

Thanks for looking,

Very cool. Custom Cast are great figures.

Those troopers should have been drawing a pension 30 years ago.

Thanks for sharing. Are the figures still out there somewhere?

No, as far as I know Custom Cast figures are only available through the secondary (or maybe even tertiary, market. They are not being cast anymore. That is a shame since they are nicely sculpted figures even though on the "true 25mm" size.

Find memories of Custom Cast.

I had some too. Was surprised when I attended an Hcon at the Penn Harris many years ago and a company was there selling the line of figures. I want to say from Kansas. Alas, I traded all mine away. :-(

Funny thing is that Custom Cast were the only figures that actually fit on "1776" recommended frontage. Nobody else did.
