Been converting and painting today in 54mm as the wind howls round outside. New heads added to old toy soldiers. Beginning of Army Star Spangled of the early 1930s.
I am pleased with how they have turned out. Good toy soldier feel finished off with shiny varnish. Next task is to look for uniform information and photos of the Canadian Army of the period including the Canadian Militia...
Nice figures, what is their origin?ReplyDelete
They are all eBay buys, some solid mainly hollowcast old metal toy soldiers. New heads fitted and some repairs done, especially to the cavalry who had some broken or missing legs.ReplyDelete
Allan, this looks very good. And issuing a flag like the previous photo is a nice touch.ReplyDelete
Thanks, they look shiny and toy soldierly and that’s what counts most.Delete
Thanks, they were fun to do and easier to paint than the 1870s stuff , a wee period holiday if you like .Delete
Very nice work. Well done.ReplyDelete
Thanks, I hope you’re surviving the current weather etc.Delete
I'm afraid that between the wars the Maple Leaf lads would have looked like the twins of their Imperial counterparts.
The few photos I have found suggested that but you never know...Delete
Very fine Yanks. Ross is quite correct about Canadians in the interwar period.ReplyDelete
That fits in well with the interwar toy soldiers I have. I did wonder about getting a Mountie for local colour and nostalgia reasons but we will see...Delete
