Picked these up recently for less than a pound a figure. They come with their factory paint job which will do for me very nicely. The top row might serve for 1838 but I am not certain. Any suggestions where to deploy them most welcome. The middle row( with another figure I have already) will make a unit for 1838 along with the Dorset 1830 marines I ordered making another. The bottom row will be added to my Albion army of the late nineteenth century.
