    Just finished these 2 Flats both 120mm .
    Zulu Warrior and a British soldier 1879.
    I've intentionally left off any badges and insignia so that he could be painted to represent various regiments.
    Many thanks for looking and I welcome any comments and critique.
    Cheers Ken

    Roger it's a cunning plan, I'd do a Medieval knight next if I thought it'll reel in Helm. :LOL:

    You never know a nice knight may just lure me in but then you'd all want to burn me at the stake cos I'd use metallic paint on it :sneaky: These look great Ken will they be at Crewe ?

    You wouldn't hear any of that flat figure snobbery from me Steve, it's a hobby.
    Right Ken, ask Steve for some suggestions. :D

    Am I right in remembering that Rolf Harris was very big into painting flats?

    Hi Ken,
    Very nice, it's like tempting a chimp with banana's. :) Now then, how do you fancy doing a couple of full figures in 120mm mate(y). I know where you can get some cracking Martini's and Carbine's:LOL: I will give you hand with ideas etc.

    If I buy these I will need to go to Roger's to learn how to paint flats and drink his home brew.
    cheers
    Richie


    I am just coping painting full figures never mind these. But you never know:sneaky:

    If you came here for a homebrew I fear there wouldn't be much flat figure painting going on Richie. :whistle:

    I seem to remember many years ago (70's 80's) him (Rolf) doing a program on it

    Are you sure its not just that the bold Rolf painted BIG paintings. Unless of course he had a roller just for flats.
    As they say " Can you see what it is yet"?
