As an added bonus, there's an unusual amount of slightly blurry photographs and a lot of padding (mostly rear shots, save for the chap on the right!)
The chap on the right was the first that had been glued together and whilst al of these five were all a bit rushed, they're good enough for my purposes.
Even with my new brushes, I have to admit I'm not good at painting figures (or painting most anything else for that matter).
On to the pics ! :
|Kneeling figure (obviously)|
|Kneeling figure rear view (again, a bit obvious)|
|Slightly blurry man|
|No rear-view man|
|Last man (standing)|
|Rear view (still standing)|
|Comparison - Redoubt (left) and swarthy Afghan (right)|
|Group Shot (padding)|
|Rear Group Shot (more padding)|
Whilst I hate painting figures, painting non-uniformed ones is an added pain, give me a couple of hundred regulars every time. I could have gone with a basic white, as per the box illustrations, but I wanted a little more colour though I have tried to use earth, subdued colours.

That's it then for another week, hopefully there was something of interest and f course, as always, your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
