As I collect toy soldiers,I thought to present these few from those that i have.
These were bought several months ago
First: Black Watch Royal Highlanders
These were produced cheaply in way of hollow lead castings by Britains, and then painted by unskilled workers mostly by young ladies,for the middle class market. I treat them as a blank canvas so paint any Highlander Regiment that i like.
i Nearly forgot to post these
Someone tried to restore those two above, by soldering underneath the base. Then trimmed off all the copyright markings with a grinder. Than slapped paint on the figure and base. They came with a Lot, and are very old Britains or John Hill Scots Highlanders.
So I will restore the broken bayonet,and then paint them the way in which i wish to.
The arms holding the rifle are loose fitting on a pivot.
They have settled in nicely and are already drilling for the next Tattoo. By passing through each others ranks without Biff,Bashing! into each other.
They are all marked" copyright, Britains ,copyright" The oldest ones are dated.
