Season’s Greetings

Is it just me or does this Imperial Guard Horse Artillery Gunner look a bit like Father Christmas? Just me then. The figure is a vintage Hinton Hunt casting of:

This is a superb little model that was a real joy to paint. I have the rest of the crew nearly completed but they will have to wait until the New Year now before they can join their colleague.

Hi Stryker, Season's Greetings to you too and a Happy New Year. I really enjoy your blog as it is good to see some Hinton Hunts painted up so well. Just a shame that you don't receive more comments/feedback. I have one or two HH myself and am gradually cleaning/tidying up the painted ones I have, and painting the castings - young family and work permitting. I even get to wargame occasionally. Cheers. Clive

PS what green do you use for your bases?

Hi Clive
I’m glad you like the blog. The main reason I am doing this is to help keep myself motivated to finish the project so any feedback is a great help. The base colour is Humbrol enamel Grass Green 80. I used this because I found that acrylic paints don’t cover very well over the white plasticard.
