If you have a games store that sales miniature soldiers near to you there may be a reasonably priced painter available for hire should no one here have a source.

Hi Johna,

if you want to try painting your own figures, I can highly recommend Brian Fayle's "shadow theory"figure painting pages.
In this process the figure is painted black, and then colour applied over the top. This works well in many scales. I have tried some 1/24 figures and they come up a treat, :D
