James at Quantrill’s Toy Soldiers sent me a message that he had refreshed or updated his blog with a new address: https://quantrillstoysoldiers.blogspot.com
James deleted a parallel blog of the same name that he stopped using in 2011 but this oddly has made his continuing blog not viewable in a search other than through a Google image search and mentions on other blogs.
On the bright side he has finally fixed the follow mechanism (top left menu) so it is easier to find and follow.
His new blog header gives a glimpse of a well-stocked games room of shelves and display cabinets full of toy soldiers.
Alonng the side menu (three lines on top left) with the follow button, there is a date archive of posts going back to 2011.
I have been following this blog since 2016 and enjoy James’ madcap conversions of battered plastic 54mm figures into colourful characters for his ImagiNations and fantasy games. It’s the sort of thing I sometimes do here on my Pound Store Plastic Warriors blog here from time to time.
Quantrill’s Toy Soldiers blog also gives a glimpse of Toy Soldier collecting in Australia, such as the recent post on the ACOTS Australian Collectors of Toy Soldiers meeting 2022.
Dozens of photos of old toy soldiers in plastic or lead, a feast for the eyes. They also got an ACW game or two in as well. Looks just like a mini “Plastic Warrior Show” in Australia!
Anyway, a colourful blog well worth a read and a follow!
