It is rare to see old toy soldiers so well painted, the good old way...
And you managed the faces perfectly! Cheers!

Great stuff.
Below is a link to my blog. It's the place where I write uninteresting things about little toy soldiers. I do this because I refuse to grow up and behave like an adult.

My method is to cover the face with Red Leather. I use Vallejo 70818.


Why red leather?

Are they also on a Specials Board.

Tee Hee.

Glad to see you back. Hopefully everything is safe this time.

You up for a game of something PK. Another game with Ken, Tim (and possibly Ian too) is on the cards.

Give me a bell.

Here are a couple of original painted Hinton Hunt units I picked up at my local Oxfam a couple of years ago.   

I repainted the bases in Humbrol 80 and based them before finishing off  with a nice coat of gloss varnish.
