EBay Finds.

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 . A lucky find and based and repainted will be seeing action on the table soon.


  1. Nice purchase - yes they are cast from Nürnberger Meisterzinn moulds.

  3. hi

    I have both the grenadier and drummer moulds.

    Happy to loan them out if you wanted to cast some more


  4. Thanks for the offer I will contact you when I get around to doing something with these castings - so much to do - so little time to do it !

  5. Huzzah, just looked in again and saw that you bought them. Glad they were of use.

    1. Yes indeed I did, thanks for pointing them out to me , Cheers Tony
