I dug out and painted this mixed set of an Imrie/Risley arab slave dealer and a Rose Roman slave figure. The original female slave from the Imrie/Risley kit was used years ago for something I can't remember.
I remember over 40 years ago looking at a store catalog for the Rose figures where the store owner had censored the photos of the male and female nudes in Rose's ancient figure series with a marking pen.
There are few recognizably black civilian figures around. This offering is from Delprado.
He's a young boy for the TSSD scale figures and a man for the classic 54mm scale figures.
There were "overall" garments in the 1800s but I can't find a photo of 1860s slaves wearing them. The "bib front" overall can be turned into an apron.
Fugitive Slave Law? Not in enforceable in Canada! I got this WBritains 1868 British soldier from their "Redcoats" glossy series as close enough to the US Civil War era. The figure is on sale at Treefrog Treasures for $9 U.S.D., less than half the list price.
Look for these new cast member in the future.
