Pound Land U.K. currently has stocks of 75 to  80mm plastic figures perfect for garden games.

The equivalent Papo or  Schleich figure range are better paint finished, slightly more detailed and about one of these  would cost the same as five to eight or more of these £1 figures.

As all they had left of this range on the shelves in Poundland were mostly the Roman Testudo  Tortoise figures, a little cutting and reglueing of the arm may be needed. Pilum or Spear very fragile but they do have separate sword in a scabbard.

Obviously a little painting may be required but this is a much cheaper way of building up some big troops for garden gaming.

The challenge is who they are to fight against! I will have to keep an eye out for some suitably tribal figures in the sameness price range.  Even the gladiator has no opposition but there are plenty more poses of  Schleich gladiators at greater cost.
