Different rebasing - Jacklex Boers

I looked in the box and decided - you'll have to go. But, as they sat there all alone waiting to go, I thought I might just tidy them up before selling... And now they are staying! These are stalwarts of many a colonial battle and even seen service as Confederates. They are Jacklex (Jack Alexander) figures bought in the late 70s in the Harrow Model Shop (not far from where I was living t the time) and only needed a few missing rifle replaced.

Just demonstrates the effect of a touch up and rebasing.

Most serviceable chaps indeed. Plenty a battle left in them I'd say. They look great.

Great figures. Never owned nothing from Jacklex which is something that leaves me sad as I never saw them in Portugal. But they really look nice.

Glad you spared them! I have actually bought a few Jacklex Boers for my Boer War project and have grown to like them. The range is still available from Spencer Smith Miniatures.

Classic figures, I have always been a fan. Good that you kept them!
