'DC' of unfashionably shiny fame pointed me in the direction of Andy Copestakes blog (he of Old Glory), as Andy had bought much of Doug's vintage Hinchliffe ECW collection, including many once owned by Peter Gilder, and (I think) Duncan Macfarlane (?). A search on Andy's blog under the ECW label produced more inspiration in the way of images of those old figures. I will build a blog list here related to Hinchliffe ECW range, but meantime here is an image from his blog that really touched me, a cover of the brilliant 'Battle' magazine (October 1978) with the original Hinchliffe figures now in Andy's collection featured on it! I'm sure he won't mind me linking this image here as it is so relevant to this project.

A sneak preview of some of the painted horse, a mix figure codes that I will outline in my next post when they are all finished and based. I'll introduce more varied horse shades as I paint the next 10 horses today.
