My figure painting during my 20's was patchy to say the least. Limited mainly to painting figures in board games and some continued interest in Games Workshop products. I invested in some GW paint during my early 20's and this was to see me through this period. The paints either ran out or dried up during this period until I was back to that limited palette and one or two brushes.
The inspiration to rekindle my interest in my chosen hobby came about when the family decided to buy a copy of my wife's favourite board game Cluedo. I was surprised to see that the coloured pawns of days past had been replaced by hard plastic figures.
These are all that remain from that period of limited painting activity, but after these were painted I purchased the green and black toolbox that was to become my paint box bought some 1/72 plastic figures, some additional paint and a hobby was reborn.
