40mm Britains-style figure

While Little Wars should be properly played with 54mm figures, the solid figures I can cast are impervious to toy cannon-fired projectiles. So here’s my attempt at making a metal figure large enough for the H.G. Wells aesthetic but light enough to actually fall down under cannon fire.

I think the generic British uniform circa 1900 should be serviceable for a wide variety of units. I’ll paint on some of the uniform details as is the case with vintage Britains figures.

The peg in place of the head will hold a rubber plug, both leaving much of the chest hollow and allowing for a variety of separately-cast plug heads. We’ll see how this casts, paints up and, hopefully, falls over.
