I've added a few more fingers to my collection, once again I may of got carried away.


They are cracking figures to paint, the detail is there just waiting to be coloured in.

I've added some graffiti on both some of the helmets and flak jackets, they may not be 100% accurate but they are good enough for my humble collection.
I have updated my blog with more pictures so please feel free to drop on over.
Thanks for looking cheers Russ

You hit it out of the park again with these guys Russ. Great attention to detail once more. Fantastic paint job. TIG

He says these are Empress figures, scale must be 28mm or so.

Thanks for showing. The highlighting on both uniforms and the armament is very effective indeed eg the mortar baseplate, the M16, or the kit carried by the mortar loader.

Outstanding painting.

I wish I had the patience and eyesight for that.
I tend to do a platoon at a time and patience is not my thing, more like, "OK Everybody into the paint pool".

very very nice painting indeed

Thanks Guys for the kind words, to be honest at times I doubt my painting skills. Someone said it's a sign of a true artist! I suppose my attitude will probably never change.

TiG as always thank you my friend its always good to hear from you.

Bill your spot on 28mm figures, my talents don't translate beyond 28mm I'm afraid.

deadhead thank you, I enjoy your comments and observations. Your outlook always strike a cord, thank you for your input it's always thought provoking in a good way.

79thPA thank you also it's much appreciated

JMcCarroll thank you, it's a fair amount of kit these guys had to hump about. I can't imagine what it was like especially in the heat and conditions.

Michael May thank you, they are such lovely little sculpts.

troopwo if I'm honest as I'm getting older and my eye sight at times isn't quite as forgiving as it used to be. Thank you for the kind words.

tomrommel thank you its much appreciated, my collection is growing but no where near your awe inspiring collection.

Thanks guys every comment is appreciated and it's great to hear the feedback. I'd be lying if I said I didn't get a buzz from all the comments.
As always keep looking and I will keep posting
Thanks again cheers Russ
