First Corps: New C20th Follies - Pulpy Police, Boy Scouts, Villains, Detectives and More


1st Corps released this pulpy bunch of the miniatures as part of their new C20th Follies miniature range with more characters to follow.

This particular range filled with characterful miniatures was sculpted by the talented Tin Shed Gamer and will eventually contain around forty miniatures. The range is inspired by Ealing although I have no clue what that actually is ... pointers gladly accepted.

Edit, thanks to reader Terry for commenting and pointing out the following - The Ealing movies from the 40's and 50's are seen as being very British with realistic characters in realistic settings. From Wikipedia - Ealing Studios is a television and film production company and facilities provider at Ealing Green in west London. Will Barker bought the White Lodge on Ealing Green in 1902 as a base for film making, and films have been made on the site ever since. It is the oldest continuously working studio facility for film production in the world, and the current stages were opened for the use of sound in 1931. The best remembered Ealing films were produced between 1948 and 1955: Whisky Galore! (1949), Passport to Pimlico (1949), Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949), The Lavender Hill Mob (1951), The Man in the White Suit (1951), The Titfield Thunderbolt (1953), The Cruel Sea (1953) and The Ladykillers (1955) are now seen as classics of British cinema.
