From One Extreme To The Other.


This weekend I ended up painting from both ends of the figure scales . On the left a 54mm figure for my collection of WW1 pilots purchased off EBay and painted  in the 'Toy Soldier' style and on the right 12mm Hessian Grenadiers from 'Kallistra' for my AWI project .


I haven't done much with my 12mm American War of Independence recently , but 'Kallistra' have just added Hessians to their range and I had been awaiting these to expand my British forces . You shouldn't really photograph these tiny figures so close as I think they are best viewed 'en masse ' and I will post more photos when I get a battalion finished .

  1. Nice work on both ends of the size spectrum. 12mm Kallistra AWI? How do Kallistra fit with 10mm AWI manufacturers? Are they compatible with any?

    1. Sadly Kallistra are BIG 10/12mm and don't match with say Pendraken or other 10mm figures , Tony

  4. The little ones look good in units of 40 figures and paint up quickly, once you get your head around painting them, Tony

  5. I sold one of these pilot figures (unpainted) on e bay a little while ago. Was it mounted on a round MDF base when you bought it?
