When you have been collecting old figures for as long as I have you get a tad jaded. A certain ennui sets in. Though you still like the toy soldiers that arrive at your door, the thrill of younger days has faded. These days the sight of me opening a parcel and then chuckling with childish glee as I survey the contents are rare indeed. It happened today though, as I pulled back the bubble wrap on a collection of Persians that contained not only examples of what I think may be the entire Hinton Hunt range, but also what looks like a selection of Phoenix Model Development figures as well. I'll be posting photographs over the next few days. In the meanwhile here are a couple of horse archers to keep you going. I'm off to clap my hands together and chortle a bit more.
