All little boys no matter how old, including the white haired ones, love lead soldiers. You can change the formations constantly and imagination has no limit. They were so fun to play with and now so beautiful to display. Of course, history is part of it as one needs to know a bit, at least enough to appreciate it and enjoy the "show and tell". These represent the French Regulars of WWI.
They are all doing the same thing - machine gunner on the ground, so they will make a section of machine gun fire. Notice the bodies fade into one leg and shoe. I do not see a marking on them. Paint looks pretty good with little pin points of metal showing thru. The paint is very much a matt finish in blue, brown for the boots and grey hat with red badge. There is not a lot of detail in the painting, rather crude. Some soldiers' guns are a bit more straight barreled than others.
Price is for a single dozen. Thanks for your interest. We hope you will find time to tour Orphaned Treasures, exclusive to Ruby Lane, and enjoy our most eclectic trove of adoptable treasure.
