These are the original Victrix ones that game with Mortal Gods (see below, large hoplon shield, armoured helm and long pointy spear - what is not to like):
The 28mm hoplite figures come together nicely (or should I say history comes alive) when you can see a shield wall forming (see below, begging for the paint job to start):

Then came a merry bunch of AWI 28mm artillery crew with an excited General Officer and "Mo;;y Maid" (see below, if truth be told I found out that I have another two to be made too, already "in the loft"!):
Finally the supporting arm (artillery) to my strange 25-28mm Malburian "late horse and musket" period army (or should that be plural) I have acquired (see below, I liked what I saw so much from these folks I put a second order in to Warlord for some more to "finish" (ha, if ever) the OoB off):

A picture says it better than a thousand words (see below, in their bare, naked plastic form - tooled up for action [er, going a bit Frankie Howard for my liking!]):
Romans beware there are more of them coming (but this time partly dressed)!

The merciless killers of the Dr Who. A squad because simply one won't do they come in packs (see below washed and off the sprue .. tempted not even to paint them .. but I will):
Something for the Daleks to shoot at! Good old fashioned Science Fiction fun!

I seem to have built up curious small piles of plastic chippings in my painting tray palette (see below, gold (Daleks), sand (Airfix new Tiger I), green (Airfix new Sherman Firefly) and grey (AWI and Malburian Artillery stands) .. and possibly more to come!):
A sure sign I have been putting some plastic stuff together, but not necessarily in a focused fashion! The wargaming butterfly syndrome strikes again ;)
Note: "Fettling" is a Yorkshire term for "buggering about" with stuff!
