Any idea who this mini is?
« on: September 20, 2019, 09:17:48 PM »
Anyone know where this figure is from and when it might have been made?  I picked it up on ebay in a lot of old grenadier models (or maybe Ral Partha) and this was the only one I didn't recognize.  I'm assuming it's from the same era, but maybe not?  Is there a website that catalogs these old models?

Thanks!

I think that is an Essex unarmered billman. I have a couple of them in a group of mixed peasants.

I agree, definitely Essex, I have them as well, bought in the 1980s...

He bears an uncanny resemblance to Gerard Depardieu.
