Thank you for telling me about the Pegasus figures. I'll look for them online, though I have already read some less than encouraging words about Pegasus and the kind of plastic they use. I'll take a look anyway.
I'd still like to see yours on the shelves because well, I like yours. They're a little bigger than others, a little "chunkier" I've read them described, but the details come out better on yours, bigger, more pronounced, easier to paint than on some others I've seen.
When I paint, I prime my figures in black, then drybrush white all over them, then color with ink or thin paint, then go back to black for metal parts, before painting in metal. I've learned that from an article written by Will Scarvie on the net, and it works. If you like I can sent a picture of my first 12 Crimean War British line infantry and the first of my medieval Russian horsemen.
But anyway, your figures make it so easy for me to paint this way, and well... you've spoiled me!
