Evaluation

These Timpo / Toyway soft plastic figures may be painted as Confederate or Union troops. All figures are wearing the popular shell jacket. Equipment consists of a cartridge pouch, cap pouch, haversack, and canteen. The mounted officer wears the regulation officer's sash below his revolver belt.

The infantry muskets are not detailed enough to identify them as a Springfield, Enfield M.1853, or Richmond Armory Percussion Rifle-Musket. The infantryman pictured at right is only armed with a revolver, despite the fact that he carries the cartridge and cap pouches of a musket-armed soldier. The figure is best converted to a standard-bearer to fix this problem. The soldier pictured at left may also be converted to a standard-bearer by removing the musket from his left hand, drilling the hand open and inserting a Timpo flagstaff.

The mounted officer fits any Timpo horse perfectly. The officer may be used as a cavalry trooper simply by painting the sash in the colour of the revolver belt.
