Who are these guys made by??

A long (very) long time ago I bought these guys - these were the first metal figures I ever bought..



They're Numidian cavalry as I think I must have had the idea I wanted to start a Roman Republican army - I remember converting boxes of Airfix Romans (it wasn't much of a conversion, all I did was stick a cut-off pin in the helmet for the helmet feather and cut new oval shields made from card!)..

Now I have an idea I must have been about 14 when I bought these, and I bought them on a visit to a wargame shop in Nottingham - I also think I only bought the riders as the horses are clearly not the right ones and must have been bought at a later date!

So - has anyone got any ideas who made them??

  1. I'd swear that the horses are late 70's Minifigs but the riders look like Hinchliffe to me.

  3. Sorry Jeff - should have said - they're 25mm's...

    Ross Mac - you may be right about the horses as they are definitely not "right" and I have always been a Minifigs fan... Hinchliffe, eh?

  4. Yep, the horses are defintely current Minifigs and the riders do look like Hinchliffe - i have some Hinchliffe Numidians in the garage so i'll have to have a look.
