    Are there any beginner tips for good manufacturers to start on?
    Or it just a case of not getting too drawn in by illustrations and keep it simple to start with?

    Welcome on board Andy. :)

    Lots of great stuff out there these days.
    I've just finished an ACW figure by FeR which was 75mm. Excellent casting and a joy to paint (even though it's not really my era) I'd recommend them without hesitation
    They also do some nice busts if that sort of thing appeals (Nap who's a moderator and great bust painter on here I think has a few for sale at the moment?)

    SK Miniatures, Historex Agents and El Greco Miniatures all have figures which might appeal so well worth taking a look at their websites to see what you fancy.

    There's lots of help available if you need references or help with techniques.

    Cheers for now
