LINCOMBE BARN HAUL

I decided to pop over the the Lincombe Barn Tabletop sale in Bristol this morning, as there are often bargains to be had.... today was no exception and I came back with the following (none of which I need of course). A couple of times I hesitated over the purchase, which resulted in the seller knocking something off the price....I must remember that trick.


2 Boxes of 28mm Old Glory ACW infantry (76 mint metal figures for £25). I have been thinking about this period for ages now and this seemed too good an opportunity to miss.  I can always paint them and sell them if the project comes to nothing (justify purchase frantically).

Really nice sculpts, with a sort of Peter Gilder feel about them


A book on the battles of the ACW £2

A Citadel Fighting fantasy warrior 50p from 1984 (this will be going on ebay or will end up as a 54mm orc).

2 Reaper Frost Giants £8 (been thinking about getting these for a while, and the supply of Reaper figs seems to have dried up since Brexit and Trump).

2 Plastic trolls £2 for both, for a box of 54mm LOTR figures I'm hoarding. Pelennor Fields in 1/32 will be impressive.

Finally for £10 a tray of 96 25mm Renaissance Spanish, from the collection of Donald Featherstone. I picked these from Chris Scott, who had no idea what make they were, neither do I. A couple of Hinchliffe bods,but the rest are quite slight and beautifully proportioned Pikemen, musketeers, swordsmen and halberdiers. These might be heading to the front of the painting queue. If anyone can tell me what make they are I would be grateful (the pikeman has an S code on the base, but I don't think they are Minifigs).

So, all in all I spent more than I intended, but was pleased by my swag.

  2. The renaissance figures are out of production Warrior miniatures.
    Look in George Gush's "Renaissance Armies", you'll see the figures.

    1. Thanks Doug....they are lovely figures. Pity Warrior have stopped making them, although they do a few larger Landsknechts now. Can you suggest some suitable horses? I was thinking Prince August home casts, but even they may be a bit big.

  3. Current Warrior horses should still fit.
    Email John Holt and ask him to be sure.
    Plastic horses might be hard to come by.
    My old source of ex Giant horses from Thailand has dried up, they would do in a pinch as they are larger than the originals.
