Hinchcliffe Ancient Hittite Axe Men.......and a Stash of Fantasy Figures presented by Beanno Boy

On line,i recently obtained these rather crude to ugly figures on E Bay. They were addressed as being from Hinchcliffe Model Figures,and i kept looking at them over the past few days and thought why not? i like a challenge!                                                                                                                          
But i had no wish to buy them. Yet i did obtain them and for nothing.                                                  
Very odd you might be thinking? _____                                                                                            
Well you see i bought several item listed below after the Hittites,and asked for another invoice for combined postage,and when it arrived money saved on postage covered the cost of these 25mm Figures. So they are Free Ones,and i have nothing in my way of thinking,to lose.                          
I have no clue as to what colours to paint them yet,but i think it will be an interesting tiny painting topic to do.                                                                                                                                           

I must make mention that the poor quality  photographs are from E Bay,and i intend to Photo Shoot them all when they arrive.                                                                                                                        

Ancient Hittites

A Few Archers

And a Few of These Fantasy Figures

I have a project in mind to paint these up in the colours i wish to,and include them hopefully in something very special with other figures. If it is possible to do what is in my minds eye,i will relate such a theme here later.      It`s all about having fun.                                                                                                                      
 So for now guys thanks 4 looking.    BB

    1. Thanks Phil. Time marches on but these vintage Axe Men i found are a good find. Pictures of Hittites i`ve placed are the closest yet to the figures i could find. BB

    1. Hi Francis Lee,the more i looked upon those Hittite Axe Men,the more i came to like the crudity of them. Boxed away for years on end i saw,came back,and got them,and at no price at all.Thanks for commenting BB

  3. Another cracking post and another cracking project!

    1. Hi Russ,so glad that you like my little excercise on how to obtain a little something for nothing.As for the other Fantasy figures i have hundreds of Archers just a spilling out of drawers in another Hobby Room. Real good of you visit time and time again. BB

  4. Nice ones, Beano! Some are very original. I believe those are Bretonnian Archers, from Warhammer... very good indeed!!! Cheers!

    1. Yes, you are correct RMacedo.
      They are from Warhammer.Thanks for the info,and it`s always good of you to visit and comment.
      I like vintage stuff,
      so things are getting better here all the time.BB

  5. Paint them up as primitive statues, then have them animate.

    1. Hi Ed,now that`s a good idea,but at 25 mm they are quite small. However nice of you to comment upon those quirky little metal men with Choppers! BB
