ARMIES IN PLASTIC War of Indepence

I recently took advantage of a sale at AIP to get their cavalry for the War of Independence. Not their best sets as they have bi-corn hats instead of helmets. Heads from All The Kings Men fix that issue.

Also the pegs on the figures don't line up well with the holes on the horses backs. A brass peg fixes that.


Now they stay on the horses when you drill a smaller hole that also lines up with the separate saddle.






I ordered several more sets to make some fighting British and Continental Light Dragoons.

Chintoys Sharpe's Rifles

54mm plastic figures from Chintoys. The figures look very close to several of the actors in the Sharpe series. I used stills from the series and plates of 95th Rifles uniforms and gear.

















Some mold degradation on Harper's Nock gun Harris's rifle sling and flash on the parting lines but really nice figures.
