British / Canadians? Alaskans? Stirring poses. The bayonet duelling one looks straight out of the Russo Japanese War pages of Preben Kannik's Military Uniform of The World.ReplyDelete
Dynamic poses indeed, I like these figures as a change from most of my other 54mm figures. They are from the North West of Maple Leaf Country where the Rusland Empire has forts, trading stations and a strong presence.Delete
Nice figures - did you just put the arms on or are there head variants as well?ReplyDelete
The heads came separately, some figures had one cast on arm to which I added a sword arm or rifle at trail arm. Other came with the two arms and rifle as one piece to be fixed to two locating pins at the shoulder.Delete
Interesting looking figures.ReplyDelete
Old fashioned toy soldiers and all the better for it.Delete

Are the Russians going to invade Hawaii again and build Star Forts ?
Are they going to invade New Zealand in the 1870s? https://manoftinblog.wordpress.com/2018/12/09/man-of-tin-advent-calendar-day-9-the-russians-are-coming-1873-new-zealand-hoax/
The History of Rusland and Maple Leaf Country is almost as fascinating at the real presence of Russia in what we know as Canada & America. The Rusland presence gives lots of gaming possibilities and potentialities.Delete
