Today, thirty-nine years ago at the tender age of five, the first purchase of "toy soldiers" was made.
These along with one brush and four pots of Humbrol enamels started a journey that is still ongoing today.
The subject matter may have changed over the years as has the medium but the process is much the same. Look over the packaging, check the contents, decide what you like best and then buy. From memory most of this set of figures was painted - sadly none have survived the years. None especially well, then I was only five year old and hadn't yet developed any of the patience required to achieve better results. Still waiting on that coming :)
Well, that is enough reminiscing for one day. However, before this post finishes here is a question for you all - when and what started you all in the hobby of painting toy soldiers?
Cheers for now
