1066 and all that with Hastings 950, commemorated on 14 October 1066 / 2016 … Very cheaply here!

That Cartoon Bayeux Tapestry Look in Plastic …

What I like about these very cheap Chinese made Knights and Warriors is the almost Bayeux Tapestry stitched or outlined cartoon style of them.

The Bayeux Tapestry, arguably one of the world’s first strip cartoons or graphic novels since the days of the Egyptians.

Double standards (in Pound Store Plastics)

All sold as Jumbo Knights and Warriors, mixed in with some Generic Knights …

and a weird Greek heroic figure for good measure. Good for fantasy games.

That’s the simple strange joy of pound store plastic warriors! Just add imagination …
