Having got stuck in..

A large number of pins later....

A 5 on the left (after John Coates drawing) and a 3 on th eright - mainly after Olympias.
Hat figures to show scale. The whole models have a couple of coats of wood-glue mixed with acrylic paint to seal the card and polystyrene they are made of. The pins have a coat of the same butmay also need metal primer paint.

The ends of the pins will be masked by plaster splash waves on the model's base-I could not face clipping so many off!. I may try with pushing the head in first so the points are out, but hundreds of points are also dangerous... Maybe the points can then be speared with some claggy stuff to be painted white as splash ?
