The Worcester River Plate 7 TFC (check out their website at http://www.wrp7.com/) will be playing a retro league after their current season has finished. They have asked for each player to have their own HW team from the 1978/79 season. I haven't painted up retro HW teams before, but thought it would be nice to give it a go. After a bit of research, the kits can easily be found on various websites. On my search through the local charity shops I came across 2 old football annuals from the 1979 season; Roy of the Rovers and Scorcher. The Scorcher annual provides excellent drawings of what each teams kit looks like for that season. I let the WRP7 players pick which team they wanted and now have a list of teams to produce.
Below are the teams that I've managed to paint up so far.
