Next 6 British Paras completed

Ok so they're almost done...missing the obvious basing material, parachute insignia and a couple of beards but apart from that they are done!

The first pics are the sniper and a regular rifleman. I've gone with the advice of a few guys over on LAF and left the camo pattern a tad more distinct to help make them pop at tabletop distance.

The beige colour of the smock has a lot more depth in the acual light (or if I could photograph properly)

The glaze is still wet on the backs of these hence a little shiny camo

A couple of bren gunners. I may highlight the gun just a fraction to make it stand out a little more

My favourite Artizan figure to date. 

Next up I'll do the quintessential red beret guys and the vickers HMG

British Para Update

Sorry it took so long since my last post. Moving house and work ramping up were not that conducive to painting. 

Just an update of what I've been up to in the few hours that I've had. 6 more paras about half way through. Basecoating done and a few layers on the face and denison so far. Plenty more to do. I'm trying to get them done in similar groups (these ones all have helmets with camo strips) to speed things up a little. 


The middle figure is definitely one of my favourites from the Artizan range, so much character in the pose.

The figures all look pretty shiny and bright yellow at the moment but the next few steps involve the blending of some much lighter smock colours. I'll finish these over the next few weeks and hopefully have some eye candy up.
