A fellow blogger was kind enough to alert me to the sale of some 40mm SYW figures on eBay , when I first started on my 40mm SYW collection I had plans to cast every figure myself - but when I saw these I thought they looked so cute that I had to get them . There are 30 of them which will give me a couple of companies under my organisation. Although painted I think I will repaint them as Hessian Grenadiers - they look suitably Germanic , I will have to cast up Officers and Drummers for them .
The seller was also selling the above Hussars , working on the theory that you can never have enough Hussars I bought these as well (luckily these purchases coincided with some back-pay that was owed to me !) There are enough for a squadron and again I think I will be repainting them into some sort of Frei-Korp Hussars . I believe they are cast from molds sold by http://www.zinnfigur.com/index.php?cPath=5_1256_1270&osCsid=upnkc9a0dpf5qq25cpbpklrts3&ID=1270 . A lucky find and based and repainted will be seeing action on the table soon.
