This is a magnificent display! You must have spent a fortune purchasing these wonderful figures. Are all of these from Bill Hocker? Thanks for sharing.

How many figures are present on this table?

Thank you for your kind words! It's always fun setting up these displays/dioramas with our toy soldiers. My wife allowed me to have this diorama displayed in our Living Room/next to our Christmas Tree from Thanksgiving to New Year's Day. It was a big hit to be seen & played with/rearranged in person by our families & friends over the Holidays. There are roughly 250 toy soldiers on this table. 95% are Wm. Hocker troops, the few others being Marlborough, Britains and Jones toy soldiers. We had three sets of Hocker Hessians, two sets of Hocker British Light Infantry and four more sets of Hocker British Grenadiers we couldn't add to this display because we ran out of room (bigger "sand table" needed next time).

Since 1983
