As I have been digging out my unmade and unpainted Ancient British and Roman figures I remembered I had also bought some moulds………….
Prince August are a firm that sell moulds to make your own figures – back in the 80’s as a school kid I supplemented my pocket money by making and selling 40mm Seven year war figures. Anyway I remembered that and when I was looking at building up a British/Roman force I noticed the moulds were on a 50% sale – so bought 2 moulds of each – 28mm Ancient British and Romans……
These are the British – Spearman, swordsmen and slingers – with shields.
These are the Romans – with swords and pilums with shields.
And how do they look?
Pretty good………..and perfectly ok for filling the ranks and building the numbers of units up!!
I reckon I have enough lead to make one unit – either Roman or British – but the lead is £3 from Prince August and is supposed to make 7 ish figures an ingot, which works at 42p a figure. Your average Warlord plastic is about a £1.
Ahh…………..breath those fumes……..so many memories.
