Looks like the Emperor of China played HWC - Han War Commander.  He had the tiny army for it.

Well back then all they had was Testors and they didn't even have Youtube tutorials.

Given their size I'd say they are the Han "Action Man" :)

Good find T-Square, thanks for that.

Nobby.....As I've said before.....I made the original Terracotta army.....But got the scale wrong.
Which is why I had to leg it out of 'ancient China'......Before I got decapitated.

The bloke that made those wee versions was just copying me.
(I never got any royalties, tho'......My bl**dy copyright)

Cheers - The Ancient One ;)

You told me you had to leg it out of china because you were caught by the Chief Eunuch of the Harem in flagrante with three of the Emperor's concubines ! (That's just greedy)  and it was not your head they wanted to chop off  :d :d

I told you that was NOT to be repeated, Mark.

I suppose you'll now spout off about the tale I told you when I was supervising the construction of Stonehenge.
(It was supposed to be called 'Techno's Folly'.)

Phil - any construction you supervised would be a folly. The pyramids were supposed to be cubes weren't they ?  ;)

IAN !!!!

SHUSH !!!!

I refuse to answer that question, on the grounds that I might incriminate myself.

Naaah......The daft b*ggers that commissioned those, had their heads so far up their bottoms that they didn't notice.
