I was messing around with these over Christmas. These are classic toy soldiers from the Prince August range. I always think of the Guards as the archetypal toy soldier which is probably the legacy of Christmas biscuit tins and storybooks. They cast neatly and were under coated in red spray from army painter. Details were block painted in with Vallejo colours. I'm still in two minds about how to do the eyes as previous attempts have looked a bit odd, the sort of staring manga eyes that follow you around the room. I think some consultation may be in order.
Uniform, as always, is that of the Irish Guards.
