These 8 figures took an awful lot of painting, but I enjoyed doing them. I might still go back and line the cuffs between the buff and the white 'lace' to help it stand out more, and try to tidy up the 'GR' on the mitres. I used a fine brush but wonder if a fine liner pen would give a neater result. I also painted an additional officer alongside them. All are by Front Rank and intended for Sharpe Practice FIW. Just two more 'companies' to complete the battalion of 48 figures. In SP British Regulars are fielded in groups of 8 soldiers.
I also picked up another squad of Germans for BA via eBay, from John at Kingscolours, just could not resist them! These represent a Waffen SS squad, but I'll put that from my mind, I just liked the painting of the cammo smocks and the MG 42 being fired over the loaders shoulder.
With templates being introduced for HE shots in BA v2 it will become necessary to maintain the maximum permitted 1" spacing between troops, so I just spaced the squad out to see how it looks, not much I can about the LMG - or come to that all of my US, German and Soviet teams which are based on 30mm bases with figures huddled together around the weapon - but I have no intention of rebasing anything, I'll just have to take the hit!
Got the paint for the hobby room, went for a nice flat green, I'll get that done possibly Sunday then I need to move onto the hall and stairs to freshen things up.
