imageThese are Toob figures from their Jamestown Pioneer set. They are a blacksmith and a woodsman, both handy civilian figures in 16th / 17th century dress that could be repainted to suit later periods such as the Wild West.

A wide range of civilian figures are featured in these Toob figures sets, though they are hardly pound store cheap and arrive prepainted. I ordered these online as some useful civilian figures to enrich games and displays.

More Toob 54mm figures from the Jamestown Pioneer and Wild West sets. The plastic house came from a pet store!

Manufactured by Safari Ltd, Toob figures can be found online on various sites: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Toob-680304-Powhatan-Indians-Miniatures/dp/B000GZADV0/ref=pd_lpo_21_tr_img_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=DRXMM2ETGA3K7EC77CYA
