Soldiers of The Combat – Toys for a Pound online

Screenshot of the latest pound store online soldier offerings from Toys for a Pound.

I quite like the oddly phrased Soldiers of the Combat, a slightly weird translation maybe?

Trying to control my plastic mountain, I have simply taken a screenshot of these.

The usual slightly out of scale play set stuff – a small boat, a Jeep, a tank, the usual flag and flag stand, some greenery perhaps and a mixed assortment of copies of Matchbox / various maker’s WW2 figures.

Difficult to work out sizes without actually parting with cash, but they look the smaller 20-30mm size.

Different sets, different colour figures, different countries or armies, even if they do seem to get stuck with the same flag in several sets.

I’m sure as a young lad, I would have thought that these would be (what is now a pound or two) pocket money or holiday money well spent, giving many happy hours gaming, compared to the pocket money alternative of ‘all gone’ 70s favourites of crisps or sweets.

I’m sure these will do very well as party bag or stocking fillers.

Enough screenshot eye candy.

Hello I'm Mark Mr MIN, Man of TIN. Based in S.W. Britain, I'm a lifelong collector of "tiny men" and old toy soldiers, whether tin, lead or childhood vintage 1960s and 1970s plastic figures. I randomly collect all scales and periods and "imagi-nations" as well as lead civilians, farm and zoo animals. I enjoy the paint possibilities of cheap poundstore plastic figures as much as the patina of vintage metal figures. Befuddled by the maths of complex boardgames and wargames, I prefer the small scale skirmish simplicity of very early Donald Featherstone rules. To relax, I usually play solo games, often using hex boards. Gaming takes second place to making or convert my own gaming figures from polymer clay (Fimo), home-cast metal figures of many scales or plastic paint conversions. I also collect and game with vintage Peter Laing 15mm metal figures, wishing like many others that I had bought more in the 1980s ...
