Somebody somewhere asked how I paint my miniatures so I have posted a article on my blog Jabba's Wargaming

Hope it's of some interest.

For reference they are the 2nd Battalion of Detachments.

Great work

I love the trews. How I wish……..

I am a late convert to Victrix, having been put off by the facial expressions, but now realise how good are the firearms, in plastic. Even for a modeller, the bayonets are a nightmare…for dice throwers they must be even worse.

Your picture (not sure I have ever seen it that well shown before) compares backpacks with those of Perry plastics. We are convinced that the latter have it right, by convention, but the difference is remarkable. The shame is that the Victrix are so much more sharply cast, if wrongly modelled)

Inspiring stuff you have shown here

@deadhead thanks, yes the trews were "fun" glad only had three to do. The backpack sizes vary quite a bit as you say. The Victrix ones can be a pain to fit as well.
