Franco Prussian War
Another smallish range which seems to be quite rare, but again with a lot of charm, and probably the main attempt at providing figures for this conflict until the popular Wargames Foundry range (still called 25mm at time of release).
The figures I have from this range have come from a range of sources, including a colonial collection which included some conversions. It is also difficult sometimes to tell the French figures apart from Crimean range counterparts - for infantry, the tell tale is the equipment on the back, which has a blanket wrapped around the top three sides of the back pack. Cavalry is nmore difficult - I have some Chasseurs d'Afrique, and I am not clear whether these are FPW figures, Crimean Figures, or indeed whether the same figure was used with two differnet codes. Any information on this would be welcome.
