They are 32-strong. 15mm frontage, 8 men to a base. Perry miniatures, GMB flag. Painted in 2008.
The usual beginner mistake (is it?) is to paint Guard units first - as they are not really supposed to be used much in games. Moreover they would be committed last in any game. Also one may wait for confirmed painting skills to do them.
Nevermind, I think they came up ok. My first attempt at painting eyes was acceptable.
