My recent blog looks at the use of Kern Skirmishers in Never Mind The Bill Hooks as well as how I went about painting them. I hope that it is useful.

I like your conversion. You are quite right: one figure with his foot on the enemy's head is enough. Foot on head is a fun pose, and it is nice for variation, and I appreciate Crusader making it available, but one really is all you need. I suppose you could have used a log or stump or some camp furniture instead.

The guy with his foot on the magic rock. The rock that magically moves around with him …

Good article, I've never heard using pink as a base for yellow, they turned out well.

That 'flesh' is really quite pale sand rather than pink flesh, so not sure anythings proven just yet.
But yes they look good… d

beautiful painting, but they look just too clean for a Kern :)

Hi all, thank you for your comments. Just to reassure SHat1984, the figures were definitely primed with flesh but I made an error in my write up. I checked my spray cans and I used Tamiya TS-77 flat flesh not army painter flesh. I suppose I could have picked up the wrong can but I bought the Tamiya spray specifically for the job. I also checked the temporary bases and they are definitely still sprayed in flesh! I think that the picture colour is off rather than the choice of spray can! :)
Thanks again, regards, Steve
