A small update on the progress I've gotten done on my 1st infantry platoon. Base colours are almost done, just the browns for woods and leathers, and metallics left.
Have to say, this is the first time I've painted 15mm in almost twenty years and I'd forgotten just how laborious it is! Good lord these little fellers are fiddly. Glad I have the two tank platoons (Currently sat, primed black and ready for paint.) to switch over to in between platoons to help break up this bulk painting monotony. After I've gotten the next colours done, I'll slap on a coat of Minwax English Chestnut for shade and call them done.
Then it's time for basing. I have some spackle which I've heard is good for textured bases, though I've yet to use it in such a fashion, so am a little nervous as to how it'll work out and if I will end up messing up my already painted figs as I plonk them into the pink stuff. (it turns white when dry, strangely)
Still yet to get an urge to paint any 40K miniatures, though I am sure that will return soon. The latest podcast (Episode 66) from The Independent Characters (My fav' 40K podcast) and Col. Scipio's latest post has me thinking some on some fun ideas for my Imperial Guard and the officer models I still have to paint up.
Here's a few shots of the British Infantry to wet yer whistle.
