A leap forward
Putting the 28mm figures aside for a break I started to work on 54mm figures and buildings. This was much earlier in the day-
Rifles replaced with ones carved from wooden coffee stirrers, missing legs with match sticks and some figures awaiting new heads. Below is the house I was working on with card tiles on one and serviettes as thatching on another. The bottom picture shows the figures before I began today. Evident are the makers mark ( J H for John Hill & Co) on the underneath of some figures and the general dilapidated state of them. I mused as I worked away about how would H G Wells have repaired the figures he used. Does anyone know ?
