Some more pictures of the same three figures Link

I am struggling a bit with these guys, and their pals (there are 19 of them). Their multiple layers of equipment straps (tan leather satchel and canteen over black webbing) are pretty fiddly, and their gear/uniform layout doesn't exactly match my references. Finally, the way I painted my last set of individual figures ( link ) hasn't scaled well to a large group. Paint and learn, I guess.

"Major" Charlton would have been proud of them.

Those are really good. Whatever you're doing, straps over straps over shirts over shirts looks good.

Thanks! I just tried to paint in the "lines", which is a little more challenging than it used to be.
