Some pictures of the first army I completed painting to any proper organisation over 45 years ago and left in the loft for the last 40 or so years. Brushed all the dust off and they still looked good to me. So I had a little parade.

I hope you like the pictures.

They've got a lot of character.

Still look great to me and the art work (painting) does them real justice.

I remember when Hinchcliffe released those years ago --Fell in love with them and built an army – since long gone!!

Nice work – I can also remember thinking I should make an army of them but never got around to it

Gentlemen, thank you all for taking the time to look at my blog and for posting, it is very much appreciated. It was amazing how well the paint has held up, even the coloured cotton that I twisted to make the reins. Probably helped by the layer of dust I had to brush off them to take the pictures. I am going to give them one last outing on the battlefield for old times sake.

Thank you for the reminiscence ABC.
I built an army of those back in 1977?
Big 25mm.
They arrived in very nice blue boxes. Wrapped in tissue with the spears in wire.
The great thing about Hinchliffe was the raised detail and straps.
Very pleasurable to paint.
Used them all over the country in WRG 4th Edition competitions. They got slaughtered because of the short spear factors and my bad generalship!

WRG 4th at competitions= arguments, lots of time measuring and very long morale tests. Enjoyable then, but I would not bother now.

Once again thank you for the pictures ABC!
