Mystery Figures

I bought these figures several years ago as part of a Seven Years War group.  I have always assumed them to be Minifigs either AWI Light Infantry or from the French and Indian War.  However, having looked several times I have been unable to find these figures in the Minifigs catalogue:

Annoyingly the bases have been cut down and there are no numbers visible.  but, on one I can make out CW, which makes me think they were originally ACW (American Civil War).  On closer examination I can see trousers and I think the hats (Kepis) have been filed down and a new front plate added to depict a Light Infantry helmet.  What they were originally, I am still not sure.

Any ideas?


  1. Yes I think you are correct, converted Minifigs ACW - I recognise the poses .

    1. Thanks for your comment, it supports my suspicions.

  2. I was going to say Minifigs knock-offs. 😆
