Fantasy Plastic Warriors

28ABE4E6-233C-45F2-97BB-B4AFFE051FB7

Not exactly Pound Store Plastic Fantasy Warriors  but a job lot picked up cheaply on EBay.
These figures are not to my knowledge usually sold in the UK so often have hefty shipping. There are multiple copies of each figure, which will allow flexible painting.

There are several female or androgynous figures in this set that might or might not  qualify as Pound Store Plastic Warriors blog contribution for #FEMbruary.

#FEMbruary is the online painting  challenge to find (and eventually paint) believable female gaming figures; some of these figures are almost heading  down the “chain mail bikini fantasy” road, depending how much bare flesh you choose to paint. https://leadballoony.com/2019/01/31/more-scumbos-and-the-fembruary-challenge/

Size: average 50-54mm except the dwarf / troll mid 40mms

Maker: ? Plastic. Base marked P2162-P1 China

Identified by James at Quantrills Toy Soldiers blog  as True Legends figures pictured here http://fantasytoysoldiers.blogspot.com/2014/09/toy-major-true-legends-mythical.html

I have  six types of these generic fantasy figures, plus the picture explains where a spare dragon and two trees came from.

1. The Sorceress, Princess, Queen Enchantress with ice cream staff

2. The Screaming  Sorceress Enchantress Crone with Club  and Skull belt

3. The Hunky Male (or Female?) Archer

4.  The Hunky Male Conan type Barbarian swordsman with flowing locks and armoured loincloth

1764B340-145B-4306-8B10-110F853D9B68

5. The Angry Dwarf or Giant Troll depending on scale

6. The Slinky Female Warrior with double swords

Shades of crop top Tomb Raider here … would suit Ninjas.

A useful 50-54mm set, especially with some duplicates to paint up for different periods.

I can see these suiting Duelling games, Space games … another set for the painting table, but maybe not this #FEMbruary.

Any clue as to maker welcome.

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.

Unusual crossbow figure, again in cartoon Bayuex Tapestry or medieval illustration style

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 …
