Nostalgic - German magazine "Figuren"
There were copies of boxes and sprues of the latest sets (well, maybe 20-30 each year to last years around 260).
What may still be interesting for the collectors today, there were such photos of the metal figures. Some like Tumbling Dice, Newline and other mostly British makers are still available. But here we have all the German manufactors who started producing figures. Sadly most of them are no more available on the market and others like Art-Miniaturen and Finescale don't have the very first figures still in stock. But it is worth looking on the market for second hand figures if one is interested in them. I have the luck, that in this days I already had enough money to buy all the news:-))
Here the first Art-Minaturen Punic wars and some Qualitycast figures. Hopefully someone will dig up the Qualiticast-moulds soon that I can get some reinforcements...
Another subject was historical research, uniformology etc.
And what was nearly new to most of us - figure conversions! A sacrilege to destroy good plastics. But with the time we got our taste for it:-)
I hope you have enjoyed this nostalgic trip.
