Greetings everyone. A few weeks ago I received in the mail a package of mainly Airfix figures. I paid $20 for the lot. They had advertised Vintage plastic toy soldiers, Germans, British and others on eBay. They are mostly World War II plastic figures. When I looked at the pictures I noticed that the Germans where mostly Airfix Italian Infantry. These figures are 1/32 in scale.
I went through the box and divided the figures into about 10 different groups.
Most of the figures were Airfix but some where from other brands.
Timpo & Airfix 8th Army figures.
One of the bigger groups was of Airfix British 8th Army.
The next group was of Airfix Afrika Korp figures.
The next group was Airfix British Commandos.
The next group was Airifx British Infanty.
The next group of figures was Airfix German Infantry.
The next group was of some Airfix Gurkhas.
The next group was Japanese Infantry. It looks like all the poses are here.
Besides the World War II Airfix figures there was some Modern Germans and some British.
There was 24 Italian Infantry inside the box.
There are 7 poses in the Airfix Italian set.
I have been looking for some more Airfix Italians for a while. I think this set was one of the last World War II 1/32 scaled figure sets that Airfix made.
Here are some Vintage Western figures that I picked up. I think they are a mixture of Crescent and Cherilea figures.
I purchased this used Ultimate Soldier 1/32 Japanese Zero for $25.00. It is missing a couple of pieces I think. I want to add this to a diorama that I plan on making later this year.
I received this W. Britain Collector’s Club Viking figure about 2 months ago. The last picture has a Conte Viking figure that I painted.
Rodion Makheav sent me some preview pictures of Warhansa sets. I also found a few more. Most of these sets should be available in by the end of March.
I think these figures are about Conan the Barbarian. Conan was one of my favorite comics to read growing up.
These looks like another Conan inspired set.
This figure appears to be of Lenin.
This figure is of Harald Hardrada the King of Norway form 1046 to 1066. He is part of the 1066 Saga for the Throne of Britain. Harald lived a very interesting and adventurous life. He met his end at the Battle of Stamford Bridge in 1066.
Here are the World War II Russian Infantry again.
Here are some figures from Runecraft Miniatures. I think they are part of Publius. They make some interesting figures in 1/32 scale. I don’t know when these will be available to USA customers.
You can find the Publius Saxons again on eBay. This time they are in blue.
The picture above is a preview of post that I will be doing in the near future. That is it for now.
Greetings everyone, it is almost summer time and soon W. Britain will be releasing new figures. Right now I am only collecting figures from the “Wrath of the Northmen” line of figures. I wish I could add some of the other lines to my collection, but due my budget I can only stick to one at this time. Anyway, I would like to share some information that I have gathered through different sources about the new figures that will be released soon. I can’t wait to add these figures to my collection and to see what else is going to come in the range down the line. Their figures keep getting better with each new batch released. So far the Saxons are my favorite, but it these new Vikings are making it harder to choose. W. Britain Wrath of the Northmen
50073C – Wrath of the Northmen – Acwellen, Saxon Warlord. 2017 W. Britain Collectors Club Figure. This figure is available now, if your a club member.
62123 – “Recene” Saxon Archer No.1 Arrow Nocked, 62128 – “Osfirth” Saxon Archer No.2 Arrow Loosed, and 62129 – “Scotend” Saxon Archor No.3 Arrow Loosed, 62130 – “Kenway” Saxon Advancing with Sword. These figures should be available over the next few months.
These two figures are so nice, that I ordered the 878 Vikings board game just to get them.
This picture of a Viking holding the Raven Banner just came out today on their facebook page, it is supposed to be available in the summer too.
I am curious to see if any scenic pieces will be released this year for this theme. I would like to see some new cottages and maybe some villagers. Well that is a wrap for now, I am gathering some more things for the next installment for my monthly report.
I just saw this today, Great news for Medieval Toy Soldier fans. LOD has acquired the rights of Barzso molds for the Robin Hood’s Merry Men and the Sheriff’s Men toy soldiers. These figures can be used as Saxons and Normans. The archers are some of my favorite poses for plastic medieval figures. You can get these sets now for $22.50, for a pack of 16 figures. To read more follow the link LOD Robin Hood’s Merry Men and the Sheriff’s Men.
Greetings again my friends, Thanks for stopping by. As the holidays approach us, I am taking a break from working on most of my projects. I am re-organizing my storage space and display area, and I shall start working on my projects next year. Right now I am going to pick up a few things here and there and plan for the future. Anyway, I have an update on some of the latest W. Britain Saxon figures today. Here are some of the Saxon archers that should be out in December. I can’t wait until next year to see what they have planned for the medieval range.
Here are some pictures of the new Medieval Tower that Barzso Playsets is coming out this year. I think it will be called the “Duke’s Stronghold”, it reminds me of Conte’s Warlord Tower that was made years ago. I think it will be released at the toy show in Chicago later at the end of the month. I wish he would come out with some more medieval figures to go with this tower, maybe in the future? This tower is great for a stand alone piece or it can be part of his other medieval castles. So if you missed out on the Conte Warlord Tower ); or don’t want to spend an arm & leg for one, then this tower is for you. I hope Ron sells a ton of these, they will look great with any painted metal or plastic medieval figures. So get one fast, it is bound to sell out quickly….
Here it is shown with the Nottingham Castle
And lastly the Tower & Rocky Base standing alone(with a small tower on top).
I think the Tower is going to cost around $179.00, the rock base around $60.00. The little tower on the the top is $20.00, and a connector wall(not pictured) is going to be around $30.00. Prices could be different, but this is what I have read on one of the forums. The connector wall will allow you to include the tower to be part of the castle. I am going to get one right away 🙂
