Old School Franco-Prussian war project

This blog has some excellent photos of the German and French figures for this era (Spencer Smith 30mms). Worth scrolling down. Lovely miniatures. I fancy getting some samples.

This is an impressive range. Might get some. I do like the traditional toy soldier stylings. Anyone got any experience with these figures? Painted by Eric Hall of Bonn and John Preece.
