Prussian Hussars – test figure
The figures I’m using are not original ones but are reasonably good copies of unknown origin (they came from the US but are not Clayton). Although I say reasonable copies, to be fair, they are at least as good as the same hussar figures I bought direct from Hinton Hunt in the early 70s which were pretty poor quality.
Receiving a package of HH soldiers back then was always something of a mixed experience, excitement that the toy soldiers had actually arrived within the stipulated 28 day period, coupled with the sinking feeling on seeing how many bayonets/sabres were broken and how much flash metal I was going to have to remove.
Happy days though…
