This is Pulp Figures‘ pack PYP05 ‘The Scarlet Patrol.’ Although intended for the Canadian Yukon, they can also serve (painted khaki) as dismounted Canadian troopers in the Boer War. They are well sculpted, and paint up really well.

I painted them as a gift for a friend, reinforcements for his VBCW forces (As seen on his blog, ‘The View From The Hill’) A group of sharpshooting Colonials was just what they need to tip things in their favour.

I also found a pair of souvenir zinc-cast Moose in the local dollar store. They are well-detailed, and a good size for 28mm. At one dollar each, they would be an economical source of mounts for a fantasy unit of some sort.

I didn’t send them off with the Mounties, I kept them for my Flint & Feather natives to hunt.

  1. I love these really nice figures and excellent paint jobs to boot. I notice you say about “dollar” stores in your post, I always thought you were based over here in the UK, but I’m guessing not now?

    Cheers Roger.

    • True Roger, I am in Canada. No matter where I buy figures from, their currency is stronger than ours, and postage is more expensive. Even the Canadian companies charge in US dollars.

  3. The way the pound is tumbling since the “Brexit” debacle, I know exactly what you mean!

    Cheers Roger.

    • I’ve been hearing that the Pound is dropping FOREVER, but whenever I check it’s still around $1.62. I’m still hoping for a drop.
