My mystery figures.

As I previously stated I bought some painted figures,with the intention of re painting them. Amongst the figures,were a unit painted as French SYW.
These really are good quality figures,with expressive faces,and good realistic proportions. Not to bang on too much,I like them.But I just dont recognise the figure maker.
Anyway,I have now re done one unit,bar the basing.Please ignore the officer,as he is RSM, but if  anyone can identify the figures,I will give them a prize of either some unpainted SYW figures,or a painted Foundry Malburian mounted officer.
The figures are stamped on the bottom, MF1,MF2,MF3,MF4. As I have said previously they are made of soft lead,not the more modern alloy.Anyway best of luck.

  2. I'm not sure, but those figures look very similar to some I had many years ago - 20 years or so. They were a generic SYW type, cast up for very limited distribution by the guys who had bought the MiniFig 30mm molds - Wally Simon and some others in the Baltimore US area. The company is long gone, and Wally has passed away. I'm not sure who might have purchased the molds.

    1. Hello Brent,
      I had heard and read about these mini figs years ago,but I never saw any.
      I will keep your excellent suggestion in mind,because,it sounds fairly accurate.
      Thanks Robbie.
