You might be forgiven for thinking hard plastic wargaming figures were invented by the Perry Twins, Valiant, Victrix, Wargames Factory, Plastic Soldier Company etc. Some us however might remember Springwood Plastics, the Esci hard plastic British Paratroopers, or the short lived Rospaks 25mm hard plastic Ancients figures.

This last range was available only briefly from December 1981 to October 1982 when they were withdrawn. I don't currently have a listing of them but I will look for some contemporary ads or reviews in due course. It is very difficult to find pictures of them so I thought it would be worthwhile and of interest to post some pictures, both of unopened packs and of some of the figures, both Romans and Greeks, below.
