JOE PUBLIC

Quite a good day for toys today, although I am not getting as much painted as I would like, I have managed to fing a few new useful figures for the ECW project. Firstly I found these figures mentioned on the excellent and highly amusing blog http://ilikethethingsilike.blogspot.com/ ,( I have half a mind to look the author up if I ever make my intended trip to Massachusetts as I am sure he would be good company over a beer). I ordered the JAMESTOWN SETTLER TOOB by SAFARI on ebay and it came today. There are several useful 54mm seventeenth century civilians contained within as well as a tiny ship (of course people were much smaller in those days, but even so it would have been pretty cramped) and a gargantuan chicken.
With a little bit of conversion work and a new paintjob this should provide me with some hard to find civilians.

Next a great find was a 54mm figure of Matthew Hopkins which ties in nicely with my current reading material. I was excited to find this fellow and have ordered him from

This chap should provide good material for a scenario or two.
 
I am off on holiday to sunny Devon tomorrow, but hope to get painting on my return and finish off the Roundhead foot regiment I am working on.

  1. Thanks for the kind words about my blog.

    I'm a 1/32 scale man myself but I do like seeing what the war gamers are doing.

  2. Hi Scott. Really enjoy your blog and checking out the toy soldier scene across the pond. 54mm = 1/32 btw.
