The Salute guide had an article on the sculpting and painting of the figure with  two paint variants - one in colour and one in black & white/grey shades. I can try and find my copy of the guide but I fear it may have been binned.

Have you considered contacting Kevin Dallimore, John Treadway or the South London Warlords to see if they have the information?

V sorry but I couldn't find my copy of the programme but i did find this image  - https://www.ebay.ie/itm/175188877799

The article was  a decent read, especailly on how the figure was also painted black and white.

If i do stumble across it by accident, which is usually my way, I will post.

Good luck

Stuart

Thanks for that Stuart, much appreciated. I e-mailed Kevin Dallimore last week, no reply as yet, though.

Anyone still have a pic of the painted fig? The ebay link's dead already.
