These figures are those I first did when I got back into the hobby after an absence of 20 years. I literally openned an old trunk and pulled out hundreds of old Airfix and a few Hinchcliff figures, got Funcken's 'L'uniforme et les armes des soldats du premier empire' (vols 1 & 2) and started painting. That was about ten years ago, and I've since acquired some Ospreys for reference as well and haven't stopped painting since then. While I got some good results from plastic figures like Airfix - and have since discovered and collected dozens of other makes from the prolific HAT, to quality makers like Italeri, Zvesda and Revel, but the ones that really appealed were the metal Kennington range. Other manufacturers like Newlines also produce comprehensive ranges and I have collected a number of them as well.
Amongst the first I collected were Kennington Austrians and among my favourite figures are the Uhlans.
I found them easy to paint - far more so than 25mm figures - and I used them to train myself, so apologies if some of the following look a bit basic.
