That’s crazy that you found figures you painted 20 years prior for sale on eBay and won the auction to own them again. Very cool!
Awesome brush work as well.

Very nice story indeed, thanks for sharing!  And as Sgt. Guinness says above, great paint job on those long lost minis!

Love your story.
Foundry figures of that time
are still very nice.
I have a ton of Foundry Indian Mutiny figures.
Still love them after all these years.
