I painted them using the same process as the first one, save for the not using the very watery 'highlight' of yellowy-white and reverting to Magnolia, from a quick visit to Wilkos. I've been using tester pots of paint from Wilko's for a lot of my recent paint jobs. It's cheap, acrylic, thins well with council thinner and has great coverage (Imo anyway).
With three layers of paint and a large surface area, these took a long time to paint !
|The step-up to the roof acts as the lifting tab|
|The generic batch of doors were all individually cut to fit|
|Carpet and large bowl of olives (roof 'handle')still need to be glued down|
I intend to add a few more details and colour to these otherwise drab buildings. Larger buildings I intend to make a a lot less dour-looking (though I'm not completely sure how yet !).
|More beads and more work to do on them, BBQ skewers help!|
The figures are based to match the rest of the Sudan stuff, 20mm square, thinnish card, covered in filler (Poundland's - of course), pva and sprinkling of sand - after the filler has completely dried !
|Salesmen (I do love their almost cartoony appearance)|
|The chap presenting the ladies' "unmentionables" is obviously my favourite and...|
|...now we know what this bevvy of beauties wear underneath their robes !|
|Late gun crews to the left, earlier to the right. Figures mostly OG with a few Redoubt (Top right)|
