By popular demand, George is now offering a
model soldier painting service. So, if you do not paint your own figures (maybe you
the time or even the inclination to paint them yourself),
then this expert help could be
the way to expand your collection of painted items.
For example, 54mm toy
soldiers (Armies in Plastic, Airfix, Call To Arms, Italeri etc.,) can be hand
painted from as little as £3.00 each. As this is an individual service and each
request will be so different, please email George in the first instance. Your
requirements, cost and delivery time can then be discussed to mutual satisfaction.
A customer recently emailed George and said:-
"Thanks very much for

Lazarus. It looks splendid".

three Halloween figures. Here is a view of the painting in
