Holy moly that's a lot of army men!
Great job on them; the shields look super neat and as a group they are consistent and imposing. I'd be proud of smashing out a force like that!
I am a big fan of some of these old school minis, too.
I have had my eye on that half-orc merchant mini for a while, I love the colours that you've thrown down on him. He could maybe do with a thinned down brown wash over everything to bring back some depth if you feel like playing around with him again!
Excited to see where you take this. I am a recent returner to the hobby too (well - few years now but still...) and have blogged pretty much my entire work since then on dakka. It is nice to look back and see how your ideas shape up and turn out in the end!
