Every year, toy soldiers manufacturers come with tons of new releases. With the end of 2021, I figured that it would be nice to look at what was new and amazing, just to highlight the most interesting points of the last 12 months.
This month, the Armies And Enemies Of Ancient Greece And Macedonia collection by John Jenkins Designs is opening a new front with the addition of the JJ-SY-01 - Scythian King. This figure is the first of this sub-collection covering one of the most intriguing civilizations of Antiquity. But first, let’s summarize what we know about the Scythian to better appreciate this figure and start this new series.
Back in 2016, when celebrating the 10th anniversary of his business, John Jenkins came with several booster sets. Those limited edition products contained massive quantities of figures for a ridiculously low price. For January 2022, John Jenkins came with two new booster sets for the Armies And Enemies Of Ancient Rome. Let’s look at the JJ-AGBS-A - Cherusci Warriors set before it disappears!
The first goal of collecting toy soldiers is to have fun and King and Country understood that quite well. So even if they gave themselves rules to follow in their collections, they will still cheat those rules once in a while to add a fun piece that otherwise would not exist. Such is the case with the recent AE086 - Discovering Tutankhamun set.
