Rebuilding English Civil War armies using 25mm Hinchliffe figures.
Brilliant - a truly heroic effort and in just 7 months!!! As per my email - all they need now is to be blooded in battle.
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:)
Top quality, great to see Hinchliffe figures as they should be. Well done.
Thanks Robbie, I love them !
WOW!!!!!!!!!!! That IS impressive!!!
Cheers Paul :)
Lee - that really is a stupendous effort - you can justifiably feel very proud of these chaps. Lovely work.
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.
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).
Thanks Norm, it just kind of took off and I never looked back.
Awesome! Looks great and suitably retro! Best Iain
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.
Fantastic collection. Hinchliffe figures still have a unique style. You have every reason to be proud of your work.
Much appreciated Matt, and I like what you are doing with your Minifigs a lot too.
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.
Thanks again Allan.
Great looking collection beautifully painted.
Many thanks Peter, I'm glad you like them :)
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.
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!
