Hi! Today, something completely different, and NOT related to 1/72 figures !
Thanks to Beano Boy from Benno' s Figures Forum, I had the opportunity to discover the origin of some of the medieval toy soldiers I played with when I was a child. The toys are 1/30 minis (54 mm high, real giants compared to the 1/72 minis) from a series called "Knights and Castles", manufactured by Jean Hoeffler in the early 80s.
This is my collection:
The lot, as my brother and I painted them in the 80s - enamel colors, very strong !
Close-up on the best painted figure - not that bad, for a child's paint!
The knights on horse - same horses in the Cow-Boys and Indians series
The foot knights and heavy men-at-arms... yes, I loved to paint blood on the minis at this time
The lighter men-at-arms - the flag didn't survive our fierce battles ! It was a time when the bases were all green :)
The whole army.
What do you think of them ? Did you play with such soldiers ? I think there must be some others minis in this series, but I don't know them.
