You were asked – TMP link

Most of us, I would guess, have at some point found themselves in the postion of adding new troops to an army old enough that one's painting style has changed, hopefully improved, significantly in the interim.

So what do you do?

28% of the votes: "Stick to your new style and simply accept the discrepancy"

21%: "Touch up the old figures"

17%: "Rebase the old figures to match the new ones"

All of the above.

Why would my painting style have changed, let alone with my ageing eyesight improved.

The few times I have done this I have tried desperately to match the new figures with the old!

I sold off my old ones from the 70s-90s, and rebuilt with newer, better sculpts.
