I often have trouble determining between East- and West-Baltids.

Could anybody help me out in defining the different types?

For example, the difference in facial features, relation of hair and eye colours, etc.

Please post pictures if you can find any.

Thank you very much.

I use it as a gradient for reduction, borealisation and Lappoid influence. Everything being lower in Baltids proper and stronger in Eastbaltids.

Eastbaltids have more often really concave and upturned noses, the typical eye region, cheekbones, body proportions (longer arms, shorter legs) etc., whereas Baltid proper is just a Borealised and reduced Cromagnoid variant with softer features, more subcutaneous fat etc.
