This is a guide to painting toy soldiers offering some quick tips gained from over ten years experience of painting toy soldiers myself. Whilst mainly focussing on 1/72 and 1/32 scale plastic figures much of this information will also be relevant for metal figures too. I am not an artist or the world's best painter by any means but I can turn out figures to a pretty good standard and I thought my experience may be of interest to fellow hobbyists........

I originally published this guide on eBay.co.uk and thought eBay Australia members may also be interested. I started to copy it out (as you cannot just cut and paste) but then thought why not just put in a link!
To date I have written over 30 eBay guides on painting toy soldiers, collecting toy soldiers and wargaming. These are all posted on eBay.co.uk and can be accessed by clicking on this link: flagbearer101 hobby guides list
My interest in toy soldiers is both personal and professional. I like to paint, collect and wargame as hobbies and I also run what is currently the largest toy soldier store on eBay.co.uk. This store is Drum & Flag - International eBay members are most welcome and I am pleased to say that Australian visitors make up a large proportion of my overseas customers.
Thank you for viewing this page.
