My Project gets impetus.

As Ive stated previously,in an effort to complete!,[well at least accelerate the process] my SYW project,I have been buying up pre painted Hinchliffe figures from old collections.Basically the type of figures you see at a bring and buy,which are in need of some tender love and attention,the ones that dont often sell.Well I must admit I have been a bit inspired because there are some decent bargains out there if you're prepared to see past the bent swords,wonky legs and heavily chipped paint.

I bought over 100 hundred of these chaps.Now to be fair the paint job is very acceptable to start with,and someone clearly made a great effort to get them to look right.So the unit below is one of the regiments that I have hopefully brought back to life.I deliberately gloss varnish,because I wanted to capture a bit of my wargaming youth, and personally I think they are the dogs bollocks. 





I was lucky enough to buy some Prussian dragoons as well,although I wont be classing them as such,again, before;...



and then after;....



The best bit is the amount of time it takes to re paint the unit, well worth the scrounge about at shows.
