    Hi all, I had fun painting this vintage figure of a soldier from the 7th Australian Division on the Kokoda Trail in New Guinea, 1942. Although it's an old figure - released in the late 80s I think - the casting was very good. I used a mix of Vallejo and Andrea acrylics. Thanks for looking!

    Nice work, Edward. Those Cheshire Volunteer figures were excellent. I have a couple in my grey army.

    Terrific work.. I am always impressed when a picture of a 54mm figure is blown up to 200mm and still looks amazing... The Cheshire Volunteer figures were very well detailed and I'm glad to say I have a few in my possession.
    Again stunning work. (y)

    Cheshire volunteers were great figures, Alex Williams if my memory serves me correctly?
