You will probably already know that I have been sucked into the world of 40mm Peninsular Gaming and getting slightly carried away.
You may also know that the premier 40mm collection belonged to recently deceased Ian Smith. His wonderful collection can be viewed via Youtube here:
I am lucky enough to be in touch with friends who new I would be interested in Ian's unpainted castings and I am really pleased to have been able to buy a huge selection of castings and at the same time contribute in a very small way to his estate which may help a little in supporting his family.
The volume of stuff is pretty staggering and includes a lot of figures from manufacturers I wasnt even aware of.
I have picked up over 160 foot and over 60 horse along with 6 guns and a mountain of spare heads, arms, weapons etc.
A few highlights included.
60 Portuguese Cacadores.
24 French Dragoons.
21 French Currassier.
7 British marines to support a naval gun and crew.
So please do continue to watch my progress as this project blossoms and I will try my very best to do Ian proud with the final collection.
