This is a guide to painting 1/72 & 1/32 scale plastic toy soldiers offering some quick tips gained from over twenty years of painting figures myself. Some of this information may also be of use for those painting other materials and other scales.
Painted Catapult Trolls. Here's some pics of a couple of plastic 1/72 scale Troll figures from Dark Alliance using sets ALL72033 & ALL72034. I haven't used the crew figures provided and am instead in the midst of preparing some converted GW Moria Goblins. Most of the work was done for me on these apart from the basing & assembly
Painted Napoleonic Prussian Cuirassiers. Here's some pics of a wargames unit using several sets of Waterloo1815's metal 1/72 scale figures. Most of the work was done for me apart from the basing and flag.
Painted Napoleonic French Foot Dragoons. Here's some pics of a wargames unit using mostly marching poses from several sets of Waterloo1815's plastic 1/72 scale figures. Most of the work was done for me apart from the basing. Painted Prussian Cuirassiers up next.
With the welcome uptick in production of ACW 1/72 scale plastics from Strelets just now and maybe HaT to come I thought it was time to review my existing collection.
