Jon has excess of 200 blocks, of which he says all are poor casting. Could this be one reason they were discontinued? In the blocks in the raw, they can seen to be less than well cast. However, I believe a war-game battlefield filled with these figures would be an impressive sight.
Once again I want to thank Jon Meech for sharing the photographs and history of these figures. I asked Jon that in the future he could send me pictures of them in action; if he does I will share them with you.
|Nicely painted cavalry.|
|One unit of infantry painted as Zouaves.|
|2 Two rank infantry units. It can be seen that some of the heads aren't complete.|
|The corners of the blocks aren't complete.|
|The cavalry bases, with the same problem of not filling in completely. Jon says this is common with the blocks. Perhaps that is the reason Minifigs discontinued them. Whatever the cause, it is a loss to the wargaming community.|
