    I’m a long time 1/72nd scale plastics collector and painter.

    The periods I concentrate this interest on are napoleonics, ACW, ww2 and  ancients. Thought I’d document my ancients painting in this thread.


    I use them for DBA and Hordes of the things.

    this is Robin Hood and maid Marian from Airfix. It’s a hero stand in HotT or a general in ‘historical’ lists.

    i use the 25mm basing, and when I play against club mates, some use 25mm figures and it weirdly looks ok.  I would have expected it to not work.

    Beautiful brush work. I love that style of painting. Alas I haven’t mastered it yet. Looking forward to seeing the rest!

    Tally-Ho!

    Stop it Fairoaks, you are spoiling me with so much retro eye candy.  Stunning painting.

    @willz very glad you like them


    a hero or cleric stand for HotT which doubles as priests for other games. Hat figures druids from their Celt command, the cauldron is from a strelets medieval set.

    Very nice fairoaks, the Druids look like a Glastonbury festival wheat grass and lemon health drinks stand.
