1/32 HaT French vs. Call to Arms British.

I was lucky be get a number of sets of Call To Arms British cast in red plastic. They are hard to get now. They do fit in well with HaT's. figures. You do have to convert officers and such from other brands as Call to Arms sets only released privates. CTA sold  poor cannons separately for  the guns crews so I have substituted Armies In Plastic cannon I already have and saved $48 for the four guns.

  Below, British Light Infantry commanded by a TIMPO, Airfix and Russian made converted officers.

 Below are Mannie Gentile's paperclip and cotton "BOOMS!" in the cannon muzzles.

A repro TIMPO "Wellington" on a Classic Toy Soldiers horse makes a good substitute officer.


  1. a very nice range of figures, Scott !
    the cotton effect is always perfect to give life .

  2. Lovely stuff, Scott. Looks like the thin red polymer line is holding well.
    All the best to you and yours in 2013!
