Job lot purchase…

I’d spotted some Minifigs ACW Zouaves on eBay but the price went too high for me and in the end they didn’t hit reserve. As the chap was fairly local I dropped him a message to see if he was interested in a deal if I could collect. He was and I finally popped over to collect them this evening. I was just expecting the 15mm ACW but he had a pile of other stuff he chucked in as well. This is the whole lot:

One nice lot added in was a load of 6mm Napoleonic British. A variety if makes but I think mostly Baccus. And a variety of basing. Most are nicely done. A few bent figures and quite a few bent bayonets. I’d hoped there were some French as well to give me both sides but no… Therefore I’m likely to pass these on. Question is…do I rebase them all first?

There were the figures I really wanted. They will add to the Zouaves I already have once stripped.

The remaining painted ACW is a little rough – painting and basing… Not sure on the make of these. There are a few Essex in there but most I don’t recognise.

These look like Minifigs but I will compare with what I have to be sure. May come in useful.

The box of ‘painted’ rebs are very random. Again, may rebase and sell on.

There was also a lot of unpainted 15mm ACW. Various makes. The bulk though seem to be old Falcon figures and also quite a few AB. This lot will be good to sort through properly. The AB I have spotted are rather nice but I’m not sure they will fit in with mine…

Some rather ropey Zulus!

And some 54mm metal Napoleonic Brits. Would like to know the make of these?

Random Irregular 6mm bits….

And the Irregular 6mm American town.

Overall I’m still pleased with the haul. Would have liked more Minifigs but quite happy to find a lot of AB in there.

More sorting to be done though…

  1. I would leave the Brits painted, no need to rebase and them still need rebasing by the buyer so possible waste of time. Look reasonably painted and the basing looks good so should not loose the collections value.

    Good luck with them all


  2. Excellent haul. I’d leave the 6mm Naps as they are. They seem to be based on 60×30 bases which is standard Polemos basing (quite popular Napoleonic rules for 6mm) and also perfect for DBN if you scale everything in the rules up by 50% Sadly mine are 10mm otherwise i’d take ’em off your hands.

    • The 6mm have already been spoken for and will be going to a new home in the New Year. EB made the sensible suggestion of why spend time re-basing when the chances are whoever gets them will rebase anyway! Sound advice for once from the chap…

      Need to sort out the Falcon and AB stuff next…
