Over the weekend I came across a blog with Hinton Hunt miniatures. When I first got interested in wargaming again, I had come across some stories involving Hinton Hunts.
After reading "Charge!" I thought that Hinton Hunts might be good for "Charge!" armies. I found someone who was producing the figures. At the time you had to buy bags of 100 and really couldn't pick what poses you wanted (I wanted march attack poses). Still I ordered Russian Pavlov Grenadiers and French 1806 French. I liked the figures, but they ended up in war-game limbo. Occasionally I will come across them and think that they deserve better.
After seeing the blog, I started thinking of the fact Hinton Hunt had Crimean War figures, so I spent half an hour looking for the old catalog, without success.
