The Big Parade!

I decided that it was about time that I mounted a parade of my collection of Britains painted 54mm-scale figures ... so here goes!



The order in which the units appear on the 'Big Parade' are (from right to left) as follows:


The number of each figures featured are:
  • Black Watch: 5 Officers, 2 Pipers, 28 Other Ranks
  • Seaforth Highlanders: 1 Officer, 1 Piper, 7 Other Ranks
  • Gordon Highlanders: 1 Officer, 1 Piper, 4 Other Ranks
  • Welsh Guards: 2 Officers, 8 Guardsmen
  • York and Lancaster Regiment: 1 Officer, 9 Other Ranks
  • Scots Guards: 1 Piper, 5 Guardsmen
  • United States Marines: 20 Marines
A total of 96 figures in all ... which is the equivalent of almost five full-sized Funny Little Wars battalions/regiments and nine half-sized ones.

I think that I have made quite a reasonable start towards the creation of a Funny Little Wars army ... and already there are some more figures on the way, including another 9 Seaforth Highlanders.

  5. Tradgardmastare,

    Even if I never, ever use them on the tabletop (and there is every likelihood that I will be doing so in the near future), I will enjoy owning these figures ... and there are still more to come!

    All the best,

    Bob
