    I've been concentrating on aircraft and armour models recently but when this was released by Greek Heroes I had to paint it.
    60mm, white metal.

    Thanks very much. My two top tips are, airbrush and don't use black except for the deepest shadows.

    Very nice! And interesting subject matter!

    The Pontic Greeks fought hard to save themselves, their Christian faith and their homes, but in the end they were overwhelmed by the Turks who took their land and massacred them. Whoever was left, fled to mainland Greece.
