Who are you?
I wonder if you could help me identify these recent acquisitions? I believe them to be Minifigs dragoons. How old are they and what range? I am particularly intrigued by the unpainted chaps with flag/lance with pennon.
They certainly look like MiniFigs , the Dragoons from the ECW range ? - not sure about the unpainted chap , TonyReplyDelete
I agree with A.W., and as for age, their style resembles the Minifigs I bought back in the 1970's.ReplyDelete
They are Minifigs S Range. The first is described in Airfix Magazine as a Border Horseman. I haven't found this in a listing but assume it is from the Renaissance range. The second figure is an ECW dragoon. I can't tell you if it is the English or Scottish one but my guess would be EnglishReplyDelete
I have a fully illustrated Minifigs Catalogue going back some thirty years - all the 15mm Ranges are Photographed, a good deal of the 25mm Napoleonic Figures are photographed - though, ECW is limited photos of each figure...though I'd say you are right - definitely Minifigs. KEV.ReplyDelete
Definitely S Range. I owned plenty of these in the very late 60s. Seem to recall the Border horse were also used at Scots lancers against Montrose - plaids were added.ReplyDelete
I still have some S range some Macedonians and a couple of battereis of British Napoleonic Gunners. Nice enough when painted and bought because they are the same size almost as Airfix, and not as wild and wacky as Hinchcliffe
