I have got my first order of German Zinnfiguren delivered this week and was really pleased with the figures I got. We some trepidation I painted up the first 6 figures of my Erbprinz unit based on Peter Youngs unit in Charge.
I used acrylics paint and inks and have used a layed highlight as I would 28mm full rounds figures. Highlighting to create depth is the key to making these figures really pop out.
The first 2 photos show the figures unbased and the final 2 attached to simple terrained bases. I have made the bases thicker than normal so that they can be easily picked without damaging the figures.
I have bought enough figures to for a 24 man infantry unit plus officers as well as 15 Austrian Cuirassier
The figures are from Fechner who figures are a good price and has the advantage of taking Paypal. Postage was 6.50 euro to the UK
