Semi flats found in the shed whilst sorting
I had forgotten these semi flats,they are around 40 mm with the Germanic looking ones being taller.
There are around fifteen painted in that blue uniform ( not sure why I did so now) and a bag of around twenty odd unpainted. Sadly there is only one tank but a chunky, charming model it is. The artillery piece has a solidity too but not quite as detailed as the tank although I think that might have something to do with the paint it is smothered in. The detail on the infantry is not too crisp but they would make an interesting force. In the unpainted bag there are a few officers on foot with cane and a few mounted officers/cavalry
Although few in number I do like these figures especially the wonderfully animated soldier with cooking cauldron over fire with steam/smoke billowing forth. The cavalryman is a simple but effective pose and the marching soldiers look good to me. They are in the uniforms I purchased them in . I don’t know their age or manufacture ( of the moulds I mean) assuming them to be homecasts. Anyone out there got more information?
