Very nice stuff Malamute, but does Lord Aberdare's head go right to the top of his hat? That's mighty tall!  ;)

Yes, that is some Pith helmet he is wearing...I did think about calling him professor Bell-End, but decided against it. lol

Then you're a better man than I.

I would have called him Hans Glans, or Professor Anthony Puppil-Helmit or something.

Mal you have made me a bad boy!

I have ordered the 4 packs of hunting parties , it was v expensive , I won't get chance to enjoy them  :'(

IMHO the hunting party packs are great figurees with so many uses. Each pack contains mounted and dismounted versions of two figures. I have the two Russian packs, which contain a couple of great officers in uniform with hunting rifles, who cry out to be involved in the Great Game. However, be warned that they will be a bit smaller than your Copplestone Russians.

I had no idea that those figs were in the Cowboy wars range!

Love the selection of colours on the figs. Beautifully done as always.

 The Russian Royal family hunting party will fit in well with your back of beyond project.

As will this pack from Westwinds Gothic Horror Vampire Wars range,
Tzar Nicholas, Tzarina and children pack:

I had thought to myself only recently there had not been much from Malamute and there was probably a large project going to be sprung at some point. Never liked Geography myself but these are great. Old Glory - who would have thought it ;D

Yes that will do fine, slip a spacer under each figure, perhaps a bit of 3mm or 5mm plasticard between the figure and the chosen base and they will be ok.

I am not so concerned about scale creep and freely intermingle Copplestone with Foundry, westwind etc. Its not so noticeable on the table, especially as each figure is a character rather than being part of a unit.

excellent, I wiil do that, like you I have no real issue with scale creep as long as its not too bad,

a spacer is what I will do, once I have sorted out my order which I think I have cocked up  o_o, by selecting the wrong postage option.
