I took a look at some of my old toy soldiers. These are from the original "204 Revolutionary War Soldier Set" sold via comic book ads. The foot soldiers are about 40mm tall, but the cavalry are pretty close to 25mm. They are pretty flat, but have raised deatil. So I took a few and painted them like I would a flat tin soldier. I think they look OK. I also painted the double cannon that comes with the set. These are flat as well, but close to 20mm cannon.
