Yesterday I became the latest custodian of this:
It's a box of, I estimate conservatively, 2,000 mostly plastic figures that Tim Gow obtained from Mark Hydes. Tim's had his pick and passed it on and I shall do likewise. I might even add some figures to it before I do so.
So far I've managed to extract enough Airfix French Foreign Legion types to allow me to finish my Rommel's Route To Verdun project. There's also a pile of sixty-odd British colonial types that will go nicely with my existing collection for playing scenarios based on TT Jeans's The Gun Runners.
More reports later as I make my way through the pile!
