On Friday I had started doing the base-coats on a dozen of them and despite wearing my strongest prescription reading glasses realised that I was really struggling to focus. Fortunately, 'The Range' have opened a new shop in town so I decided to take a walk over there and spent £14.99 on this....
What can I say, things came sharply into focus. After a faltering start where my field depth was all wrong and I was splashing paint all over the figure I soon go the knack of it and think that these eighteen figures are likely the most precise ones that I have done in years.
I followed my usual recipe, however to add some variety I have started painting the Assault Packs on these in grey and the haversacks in German Camo Beige.
You will also see in the image at the top that I have started making some Shock Markers to go with them for our Chain of Command games.
Here are some close-ups. I'm quite happy with the extra detail I can get on them with the craft magnifier.
