Hey Al,
Also saw your figs in your other thread.
They certainly look the part.
I usually Model Master and Humbrol enamels for uniforms but I'll have to see if I can pick up some LifeColour just to try out the flesh tones.
Cheers

Hi John,

The Flesh Tones are very good as is the US Set. The paint flows very easily so for figure painting the pots should las a long time as you only need a tiny amount.

I hadn't quite gotten the figures finished and I was a bit late in getting this one done, as I had to build some figs to see what might happen, so I only got them done today hence putting them into another thread.

This chap was th hardest: as I didn't quite get the colour right the first time:



I'm quite pleased with the results:



Cheers

Al

Hi Guys,

On a slightly different note does any one know if they intend to do some sets covering British Army and Royal Navy Uniforms? I imagine an RAF Uniform set would be welcome too?

They seem to have quite an extensive list of choices
