Foundry, when they started turning out figures to the same quality as the GW figs of the time, rendered figs produced by the likes of Hinchliffe obsolete over night.Yet they are still in production to this day!
As are Airfix point being….
As with many of these things it is down, to some degree, to personal choice. Speaking of Airfix I have painted over 100 of the re-released 1/32 scale figures, and still have a box of Russians to do. In many way they are absolutely awful, the quality of some of the sculpting is poor and the historical accuracy is very poor, but they are appealing to me for other reasons, nostalgia being one.
Lets be honest there are really no obsolete figures. What may be obsolete in my eyes will be different to some one else.Perhaps I chose an inappropriate word , however I still stand by what I said about Foundry in that they set a new standard in historical gaming figures and thats why they still command a high price today and people are still buying them .
For me the British Para set is iconic.
