Really lovely. Your efforts bring back early wargaming memories, although my first figures in the 1970's were Airfix plastics. A friend and I then graduated to Prince August with metal gleaned from a local printer where I worked part time.
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.

Superb! I well remember coveting British Infantry figures like that when all we could afford from us 'paper round' wages were Airfix munchkins!

With the price some original Hinton Hunt figures go for on ebay I am not sure I can afford them now. :)

By gosh those are nice, Sir.
I remember 20mm figures and them being the top shelf kit.
Very well done. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for sharing these with us! They look magnificent.

You do a great job on those. Sometimes I paint 25mm Minifigs for a gentleman from 'round here and I'm rather sure that these older figures are a fair amount more work than new 28mm figures with all their folds to work with and so on. On top of that gloss varnish is quite unforgiving in photos. All the more impressive since you do 20mm figures.

Anyway, great job.

My latest classic napoleonic unit has been completed. A Hinton Hunt French Line Artillery unit. The guns are I believe from the Warrior range.
