My latest Funny Little Wars recruits … out of their boxes!

Some years ago James May
bought a boxed item of Hornby model railway rolling stock at an auction as part of his TV programme about his Top Toys
. (I think that it was a ‘Car-a-belle’ … but I am not sure.) He bid against a number of collectors … and some of them were shocked when he stated to camera that he fully intended to take it out of its box and run it on his model railway at home.
Well today I am going to shock a few collectors of Britains toy soldiers … because I have taken my latest Funny Little Wars recruits out of their boxes … and here they are!
I think that they look great … and cannot wait for an opportunity to try them out on a tabletop (or even a lawn!) battlefield.
