  1. Brilliant - a truly heroic effort and in just 7 months!!! As per my email - all they need now is to be blooded in battle.

    1. Rob, your comments and advice has been invaluable to this project, I remain committed to a battle and would love you to join me. Our move to Spain is going to be a 2 phase project, house completion on 26th March but a further 4 weeks here renting before we go to Spain so there is still plenty of time:)

    1. Thank you Sir, means a lot to me. Now I get why people still collect the early figure ranges, something has been lost along the way.

  5. A great project, something that you can be really pleased with for many years and that brings some genuine cheer to a lot of others (as well as inspiration).

    1. Iain, when I sold off the original collection Hawkwind were my favourite band, along with Jethro Tull, I painted most of those Hinchliffes listening to those albums, great times.

  7. Fantastic collection. Hinchliffe figures still have a unique style. You have every reason to be proud of your work.

  8. Thank you all so much for the comments, they really are appreciated.It's been a blast painting, cleaning and rebasing these lovely Hinchliffes and I could just keep going but I think it's time to move on to something fresh. I am still working on a couple of dismounted dragoon marker bases.

  10. Well you have well and truly set the cat amongst the pigeons with your inspirational ECW armies. I have been looking for my next project and your wonderful work has convinced me that I really need to return to 25mm ECW a la Peter Gilder.Take this decision as a complement as I attempt to rebuild my long sold off Hinchliffe armies. Well done again.

    1. Robbie, I know you will be well rewarded as they are a great range of figures and the current castings are crisp and clean. I'm preparing a post on individual figure codes, vintage and present with my observations on each. I look forward to seeing what you did with them and if I can be of any help re codes etc don't hesitate to contact me. Next big job for is getting this collection safely to Spain, I'm quite anxious about it all!
