Found in the Scrap Box at Jack's. Can you help to identify?

I was over at Jack's trying to find some moulds and I came across these figures in a box of scarp figures.  I have no idea who made them and Jack can't recall.  Does anyone recognise these?

All the figures are 20mm

Figure 1

French WW1 or Polish WW2?  

Same figure just one has lost his bayonet.

Figure 2 
WW2 Germans

Figure 3
WW2 German Paratrooper
This figure was designed without a base.  I used a bit of 'blu-tac' jjust to keep him upright for the pictures

Figure 4

WW1 German or Franco Prussian War Prussian?.  
The figure is very slight.  On first impressions it looks less than 20mm simply because it is thin.  However, when you stand it next to one of the figures shown above it is roughly the same height.

Any help would be appreciated.

20mm Jacklex Russian, Pathans, Indians and British the game that never was

It has been a long time since my last post.  I have been busy on our other site  I set up a game for Jack Bob and myself using Jack's 20mm Russian, British and Indians and my Pathans.  All the figures  with the exception of a couple of my Pathans are Jacklex 20mm.

Interestingly, although Jack made the Pathan range he never painted any, choosing instead to use them in his Madhist army.

Having put all the figures out for a game fighting across the table, I decided at the last minute to change this and fight along the length of the table.  The report of that game is on our sister site,  However, I took a lot of pictures of the table and the figures before changing it, so I thought I would post them here is anyone is interested.  Some pictures will seem similar to the game as I kept the basic scenario the same.

One interesting development is I think Bob and I persuaded Jack to make standard bearers for the Russians.  We shall wait and see.
