When I first saw these figures, I was truly dreading painting them, as so much of the figures required sticking together, but after an afternoon of puzzling it through I managed to do it. I was also a bit perplexed by the labelling on the packet as "16 men, 1 animal and 3 crew weapons" but after a bit of emailing with Personal logo The Editor The Editor of TMP Fezian and the Fantassin team, was able to establish that the third crew weapon was in fact a weapons crate model!!!

I was also surprised that the pack contained an anti-tank gun crew but no gun!!!

I started these figures in a similar manner to the Italians, with a black undercoat after sticking them on a base.

Then I applied Polyfilla and sand.

Basing sand

A slight difference with some of these figures is that I painted PVA glue onto them and then dipped them in the sand - this made a flatter ground, so that the skis and deployed weapons looked better.

This I then coated in a dark grey and highlighted by drybrushing white, and added a rock or two to some bases to spice them up.
