This is pretty amusing. Great idea!

Next time maybe have sort of overall theme so that all the figures must fit together in some way for a scenerio or army.

Mark S. of River Forest, IL (near Chicago) checks in...

I received the box and a few of the figures looked interesting. First off, there was a Castro-looking fellow. So I pulled him out. Then I saw a modern SWAT-looking guy. I thought he'd look just great in a scheme I had just used on some World War 2 US Airborne.

This figure is a Mogadishu D-Boy from Britannia.

Basically I undercoated his uniform in U.S. Drab, then highlighted with Vallejo Iraqi Sand. Mixed a little white into that, and did a final highlight. The rest is simple two-tone painting. Pick a dark color and paint a basecoat - add white (or pale sand) and highlight. I paint very little 28mm, but I'm pretty happy with how he turned out.

Mogadishu D-Boy (Britannia)

Seeing the pirate on its base, I decided to just paint him green and let it go at that to save space. In order to keep the package a bit smaller and cheaper, I'd suggest keeping basing to a minimum. If we do this again, perhaps the final participant would base them all?

Oh yes, I confess...

I kept Castro - just couldn't resist - and added another swashbuckler to go with the painted one already in the box.

Also, I've re-packaged the minis into a foam tray with compartments. When you get the box, be sure to look around - there are parts and such loose in there.

From here, the box travels to Ed. G. in Memphis. We're still on time!
