SPECIAL THANKS. I would like to thank Paul Watson for his sponsorship of several lead figure collections on this blog. Having decided to clear his spare/surplus figures, he generously forwarded them on with no other requirement than they deserved to be restored.

MORE OTTOMAN TURKS ready for action

My second drive into raising a Medieval Ottoman/Saracen army has furnished some armoured ghazi (religious volunteers), three foot guards, and a dismounted commander. All figures are W. Britains Deetail Range made in the 1970s-80s.

(John, have also added a size comparison for Timpo Arabs and Deetail Turks.)

    1. Hi Mark, I never had these as a child, I think the Deetail Saracens are some of their best.

  3. Excellent job Michael! You've taken our simple childhood toys and turned them into detailed works of art! Well done!

    1. Thank you Brad, its quite a change from painting traditional lead figures, different methods. But the metallic paints make them very ornamental, and further enhanced with the gloss varnish.
