    I echo your concerns. Also, if figures start to be shipped direct from the US to collectors in Great Britain, I'm sure HM Revenue and Customs will charge VAT (plus Royal Mail's extortionate...
  4. Re: What Toy Soldier items Have You Acquired in The Last 2 Weeks ?

    It did come with the base you describe but I wanted it flat so it could go alongside other figures. The base is still the bridge but textured to represent grass.
    I was delighted to get it.

    I got the long awaited Nassau Grenadiers this week and I'm delighted.
    They fit in well with those models first issued back in 2007 as the photo shows.

    Re: Swapping knapsacks

    You didn't "go on", Ken. All you've said is helpful both in terms of the figures and also the historical background to the knapsacks used by British troops and some of their allies at that time.

    Swapping knapsacks

    Has anyone tried to remove knapsacks from Britain's figures?
    I thought it would add variety, for example on these Brunswick figures but I wouldn't want to damage them.

    It's well worth the membership fee if, as Horus says, there is a free club figure that you'd like.
