    Those look great. I still have a soft spot for the old fashioned figures – are Hinchliffe available any more or were they just something you had tucked away?

    Cheers! All bar the Butlers Rangers officer in an earlier post are brand new. Give Ian Hinds a call. Service is great:

    I think they look great jeffers.  I bought a few sample Hinchcliffe AWI figures from Hinds a couple of years ago and they really are very nice and full of character.  Some of the one piece casting cavalry figures are particularly good (especially if you like your figures in action poses).

    In the end I decided to go for 15mm figures – mainly because I am such a slow painter that I find the idea of painting a whole unit of 25mm figures very daunting.

    Cheers, General! If I had any sense I would have gone with 15 or 10mm too, but somehow I just can’t get exited about smaller figures. I used to sculpt 10mm but never played with any of my own figures. The only ones I painted were for the trade stand and adverts!

    Ah, yes. Painted up a lot of those in the late 80s or early 90s. Not bad figs at all!

    Good work, Jeffers.  IIRC, the Hinchliffe AWI range had two sculptors – Peter Gilder for the Bicentennial stuff, and someone else for the slightly later “X range” which were quite possibly the best sculpted figures I had seen up until that point (and in any scale until Tony Barton released the Battle Honours range).

    I’ve played the “Liberty” boardgame with a friend (who owns it, has therefore played it more often, and thus runs rings around me) and it’s quite good.

    Hi Brendan. Thanks for the compliment, which I will return as I’m a fan of your books! You probably can’t remember, but we met at Mike Hickling’s many years ago…

    The X range I believe were done by the late Steve Hezzlewood. And I will say no more 😎.
