x-I saw these figures back in 1994 at The Great British Train Show here in Ontario. They are 4mm Dapol figures and I was amazed at how lifelike they looked. They were painted black first, and then the colours were dry brushed on so the black stayed on the edges. I was told by Les Scanlon, the person responsible, that the technique was developed by Australian war-gamers, and was a very fast way of painting. I was bitten by the black bug. I have put a link to a wargaming painting page in the Links section
